Unexpected water release on Wednesday 15 and Saturday 18th August !

Take advantage of the water releases to go boating on the middle Verdon river.

However, the days without water releases are a great opportunity to discover the Verdon gorges through the water rambling activity.

The water releases on the Middle Verdon below the dam are usually somewhere

between 1,5 cms. (cubic meter per second) -minimum flow- and 40 cms. (limit to becoming a flood).

The Middle Verdon starts to be runable at a flow of 10 cms.
