The discovery floating tour
The grand Canyon du Verdon is known to be an extraordinary place ... Why don't you try to discover it during a floating tour ?
The floating is a mix between hiking, swimming in the rapids (lay down on your back, feet first) and jumping (not an obligation to jump). It's like canyoning without the use of rope.
The discovery floating tour is dedicated to the adult and teenagers who want to discover the activity. The trip lasts 1h30 inside the water and 2h30 in total. During the activity, we have a short walk at the beginning (5min), then after the briefing we go in the water ! The water is fresh (from 12° to 15°), but with a tick wetsuit, everything is possible ! There are several places to jump (from 1meter to 6 meters). The jump are not compulsory. At the end of the adventure, we hike back in the path Blanc Martel. We will cross 2 dark tunnels! The hike on the way back lasts 30 min.
This tour is leading by a professional guide with french certification. He will be with you to explain you the activity and show you the Secret of the Verdon !
