 FLOATING VERDON

Floating is known to be an unforgettable experience...

Imagine yourself on a half day or day-long adventure in one of the most remote and wild parts of the Grand Canyon du Verdon.

Floating, or aquatic hiking, is a mix of activities: swimming in the rapids, hiking and base jumping (optional between 2 and 10 meters high).

The Mystic floating is the most impressive and longer trip that you can do in the canyon. It's a full day trip.  If you don't have a full day, you can try the Discovery floating, it is a really good option to see the canyon. With your family, you can also do it, we have the Family Floating tour adapted for your young children !
