Our guide hand out the equipment and give a safety talk. Then, we are ready to set off for a descent of the Verdon of 4 km which takes 1h30.
Aided with a specially designed floating board called “hydrospeed”, we use flippers to make our way down the river as indicated by the guide.
The first section is easy, it gives you time to practice this particular type of swimming.
Then, small rapids (class II) come up before you penetrate inside the entrance of the Verdon Gorges.
After a series of class III rapids (medium difficulty), you run the final rapid, which brings you to the Samson Corridor.
All that is left to do is to walk up to the Samson Corridor Belvedere with our equipment on the “Sentier Martel” trail for about 10 mn – our bus is there waiting for you. After getting changed, you are driven back to Castellane.
