Gorges du Verdon - Verdon Gorge Jul 14, 2008
The Provence is well known for its picturesque villages, scenic landscape and lavender (smell). Surprisingly some tourists do not know that close to the small city of Castellane you can find a spectacular natural wonder: the "Gorges du Verdon". This was the same with me by the way...

It wasn't until I finally drove through the Provence when I first heard about this place. The canyon is 21 kilometers long and up to 700 meters deep (see the picture) - and therefore among the biggest gorges in Europe.

There is the possibility of renting kayaks or hiking. It is also an "El Dorado" for free climbers". If you have little time like I had take the scenic drive and enjoy the sight from one of the parking spots. Glorious views, definitely worth a side trip!

Unfortunately only a couple of pics. And most of them did not turn out well.
