Autres réglementations

pour préserver l'environnement

Que vous soyez habitant ou vacancier, voici quelques rappels des autres réglementations appliquées dans le Parc naturel régional du Verdon.

Especially during the summer period, the risk of fire is high in the Verdon massifs. So please do not light your cigarette or make campfires or barbecue.


   Our advice 

Instead of throwing your cigarette butts in the wild which could cause a fire, opt for a portable ashtray.

In natural areas, you won’t find rubbish bins at every bend in the path… but that’s no reason to throw your rubbish into the wild. So please collect and sort your waste.


   Our advice 

Carry bin liners or plastic bags in your backpack so that you can put your waste in them and sort it out before throwing it in a container.


Drone flying is a nuisance for humans and animals. This is why it is regulated, especially in protected areas. Please follow the instructions.


   Our advice 

Find out about overflight restrictions.

Consult the prevention guide of the Verdon Regional Nature Park



On the banks of the Castillon and Sainte-Croix lakes or on board watercraft (canoe, pedal boat, boat…), please limit noise pollution, especially musical.


   Our advice 

Instead of using a connected speaker, opt for headphones or earphones so as not to disturb nearby people and animals.


Advices from the ecoguards

In summer, you will certainly come across one of the eco-guards of the Verdon Regional Nature Park.

They walk all over the Park, from the lakes to the Gorges, with the aim of welcoming you, informing you and making you aware of nature prevention.
