ABOARD Rafting




RAFTING: Half-day trip on the Upper-Verdon

Explore the Fontgaillarde gorges from a raft .





Meet at 2:00 am at the "Adrech campsite" (see the access map) on the upper valley of the Verdon river.

The guides will be there to welcome you. They will hand out the equipment and then drive you upstream to the start. Then the guides will give you a safety talk to introduce you to the basics of rafting.

Then, you will be ready to ride on a trip that will take you from the Clos Bridge to the Allons Bridge (about 16 km for 2:30 hours on the water).

We will ride in the Fontgaillarde gorges where the river flows in a narrow canyon. The Upper Verdon presents constant rapids (medium difficulty), with waves bouncing off the cliffs in the many curves.The scenery is rather wild in this upper valley, with very little infrastructure noticable from the river. Between the rapids, we will take a look at the beautifull cliffs made of layers of sediment rock. We will stop in a corner where the more adventurous ones can have a go at jumping from an overhang in the water.

Then, the gorge opens up again towards the end of the trip and we will reach the final bridge where you will find your vehicles.
