Rafting Provence? Canoe Provence? With Verdon Xp & The Funny Helmets! Descend the Verdon, one of the most beautiful rivers in the region. The Verdon crosses one of the most famous canyons in Europe, 20 km long. Transparent waters heavily loaded with limestone which, under the Provence sun take on this exotic emerald color. The frame is set.
In this Alpine region, several rivers such as the Var, the Tinée or the Vésubie allow navigation. Rather seasonally, when the flow of the rivers takes advantage of the snowmelt or a few rains. The Verdon with its many dams givesthe possibility of allowing the sailing even at the height of summer.

Canoe Provence – Canoe Verdon

Indeed, this activity will be perfect for those who are afraid of getting bored in the Rafting activity. You are in control of your boat, equipped with a double paddle. Alone or in pairs, you face the tumults of the Verdon!
These are inflatable boats waiting for you. Indeed, the Verdon is a medium mountain river which presents more difficulties than a river where one generally uses plastic canoes. A certified guide will accompany you on the river after giving you all the necessary explanations.
Consult our “Canoe-Kayak” page. You will learn there why it may be easier to start with a single-seater. Even for beginners or beginners.

Rafting Provence Impossible? Come and test the Aqua Trekking!
When the Chaudanne dam is closed, we go on an adventure in the Grand Canyon du Verdon. In low water flow, we swim in the river equipped with neoprene suits, helmets and life jackets. In a way, you are your own boat, even inside your wetsuit which will absorb the caresses made to the stones. For those who are apprehensive, no worries, jumps are never compulsory. Indeed, on a canyoning course, the jumps and abseils are imposed by the logic of the progression. However in Aquatic Trekking, we make a detour to find these jumps which remain an option.
Half-day Aqua Trekking
Accessible to everyone from 6 years old (40 €). Very easy and very easy to access route, little walking.
“Le Pont de Tusset” est le parcours adapté aux 6-8 ans. Un parcours très ouvert donc très ensoleillé. Les plus grands en ont aussi pour leur compte avec le superbe saut de la Salpêtrière. Un saut de plus de 6 mètres de haut que l’on peut refaire autant de fois que l’on veut.
Juste en aval se trouve le parcours classique demi-journée, ‘Le Couloir Samson”. Il renferme de formidables étroitures et des rapides un peu plus sportifs. Le retour se fait par les derniers tunnels du sentier Blanc-Martel.
