Canoe Verdon Gorges is accompanied by a state-qualified guide. He will equip you, give you the necessary instructions and ensure your safety on the water.
You are autonomous in an inflatable boat, single-seater kayak or two-seater canoe perfectly adapted to the courses of the Gorges du Verdon. The rapids are yours! Sport and sensations guaranteed!
2 hours 30 of activity and we take care to bring you back to the start.


The Canoe Gorges du Verdon activity is the only one we propose every day outside the period 1 July-15 September.          Indeed, it is possible to practice the Castellane-Pont de Soleil course on days of water release or the Pont de Soleils-Point Sublime course when the dam is in reserved flow.

The classic course on the days of water releases. It is also the most sportive white water activity we propose. Indeed, unlike the classic canoe rental on a weak current, you will face real rapids here.

The departure is between the bridge and the swimming pool of Castellane. An evolving course which will allow everyone to learn the discipline before getting into the thick of things and measuring themselves against the rapids of the Porte Saint-Jean.

Superb course which will make you know the first kilometers of the Grand Canyon. It can be done until the beginning of July and after September 15 when the dam is in reserved flow (higher than 3 cubic meters per second).

The low water flow then imposes a navigation in single-seater. An easier route than the previous one. Nevertheless, you will have to carry your boat for ten minutes at the end to find the parking lot.

In spring, when the water level allows it, we also sail on the wonderful course of the Haut Verdon. The departure is near Beauvezer, about one hour from Castellane. We can transport you or give you an appointment on the spot.

For the day, we will provide you with waterproof bags and cans to carry your picnic.


After equipping you at our base, our driver will bring you to the starting points. Our guides will instruct you on how to maneuver the vessel and will show you the necessary techniques to ensure your safety in case of “disembarking”.

The two-person canoe may seem more appealing to some, but remember that they are longer and sometimes more difficult to maneuver. For this type of canoe, it is recommended that one person has prior experience in this kind of equipment.

For the single-person canoe is much more handy and easier to maneuver and is more accesible for peoiple without prior experience. However, this watersport is more sportive than rafting. You will not be in an opened vessel and your arms will feel heavier when it’s time for the apéritif!
