Sports activities and outdoor sport in the Verdon

VERDON XP & The Funny Helmets exclusively offers aquatic activities, particularly white water. However, it is good to know that the Verdon valley offers many possibilities in sports activities and outdoor sport.

Mountain biking

Fifteen signposted routes from Castellane which is also the crossing of the Routes du Soleil and the TransVerdon (route along the verdon). Two legendary routes that require several days of expedition. Those who prefer the road circuits are also served since this mountainous region offers multiple possibilities. The road of the gorges which leads to Moustiers or the Col d’Allos for the more adventurous.

Hiking

Hiking for some, trekking for others, the Verdon is a walker’s paradise. In summer, visits are concentrated on the Grand Canyon or the Martel Trail on the right bank and the Imbut trail on the left bank allow you to explore two-thirds of it. Higher up in the valley, we enter the Mercantour National Park. The lake of Allos, the massif of the three bishoprics … The rest of the year, we can enjoy the routes too exposed to the sun in summer.
