Natural Feature
“The magnificently rugged gorges makes for a wonderful day-trip when combined with a stop at the Lac Saint Croix, which is located at the mouth to the Verdon river. Both are impressive to see - have a picnic at the lake followed by a swim or hire a paddle boat or kayak, then explore on the water. Or just stop on the bridge to take photos, then drive on up to see the gorge - there are many places to stop to get out of the car to take photos. One can also go rock-climbing or para-gliding, though booking ahead is essential. Approximately 60 minutes from Jouques.”
