The Gorges du Verdon, Europe’s downscaled version of the Grand Canyon, is situated 30 minutes North of Draguignan. This beautiful and dramatic scenery of mountains and deep valleys is a must see. In the summer, people flock to this area to hike or rock climb. They love to take a pedal-boat stroll and jump from the huge rock cliffs. The river Verdon pours its waters in the turquoise lac Ste-Croix. It is incredibly beautiful and well worth paying a visit to!
