Aqua Trekking Verdon Gorges and the natural environment
We are concerned about the environment and each year we follow all the measures to minimize our impact in the Verdon Natural Park.
Before starting the adventure, our guide will instruct you on the ways to minimize your impact in your surroundings, like not stepping on the bottom of the river and swimming as much as possible to avoid contact with the benthic zone. They will also inform you of the areas where it is prohibited to step on where numerous invertebrates live.
A new world will open in front of your eyes!
