Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur | Have you had enough of the Antique? Then why do you not undertake an adventurous trip to the Canyon of Verdon which is one of the biggest in Europe. The turquoise and blue Verdon River is embedded into the 700 metre deep lime cliffs and is a quite beautiful spectacle. In the summer months Verdon also offers hikers lovely walks in the water. Should you prefer not to get your feet wet then you may want to explore the countryside around the Verdon Canyon with the bike. In order to reach those remote villages in the Provence you will need to be willing to hike but it will be worthwhile as you will see the variety of the countryside such as lakes and steep rock formations. Once you have reached the villages you will be able to take in the cultural characteristics of the Provence and savour the tranquillity of the countryside. But you must be careful: Verdon can turn into a dangerous river in certain areas and during specific seasons. One should not undertake any such trips without sufficient knowledge.
