3 good reasons to come out of season

Enjoy the silence!

In May, June, September and October, the traffic is much quieter, so you can enjoy your activity in complete peace of mind. Apart from the gentle sound of water and vultures, silence reigns in the Gorges du Verdon. So let yourself be carried away as you admire the panoramas before your eyes. Do you feel this fullness?

More intense whitewater sensations!

In the Verdon’s off-season, higher water levels thanks to melting snow and regular rainfall provide ideal conditions for enjoying our canyons! Count on 30 to 40m³ of water flow released into the river. Sports enthusiasts will be delighted, as the conditions are ideal for whitewater thrills and spills.

The weather’s fine, so get in the water!

The Verdon is one of France’s sunniest destinations. We’re in luck! So make the most of your off-season activities. The crystal-clear waters of the Verdon, sunshine, the Grand Canyon and peace and quiet…what more could you ask for?
