Le Point Sublime

Point Sublime is the first viewpoint on the canyon and one of the detours not to be missed.

From the viewpoint, a veritable balcony clinging to the cliffside, the impressive Verdon fault opens up before you at the Samson couloir. You feel miniscule in front of these two immense cliffs, with the emerald waters of the Verdon River flowing at their feet.

Route des Crêtes

The Route des Crêtes

The Route des Crêtes circuit is an unmissable detour. This 24 km-long scenic route takes you to numerous belvederes, all perched atop the highest cliffs in the gorge, with breathtaking views. The desire to fly away makes you dizzy… a feeling of freedom and fulfilment!
