Sports activities with dry feet
Here is a selection of articles that deal with sports activities other than those we offer. Activities that you can practice on the Verdon territory. These articles invite you to discover new sports or invite you on hiking and mountain biking itineraries.
Canyoning, mountain biking and hiking are the most popular activities, so we have reserved a sub-category for them. However, we have also taken care to place a sub-category “various” which completes the wide range proposed in the Verdon. Just to show you that we never get bored here!
Culture and Heritage in the Rafting Verdon blog
We have also chosen to focus on the culture and heritage of our region. You will find in this category articles that will enlighten you on many cultural aspects of the Verdon. Thus, we have dedicated a sub-category to the villages of the Verdon as well as to its fabulous lakes. A sub-category “miscellaneous articles” gathers to finish many surprises.
Here you can learn more about the history of this region. Stories often full of mysteries and legends. Indeed, the territory of the Verdon remained enclosed for a long time and was shaken by multiple events. The stories that reach us are full of romanticized facts.
