We take advantage of the summer days where the water releases from the dam are at a minimum level to explore the entrance of the Verdon gorges. Floating, swimming and walking are the ways to do it. Water rambling is definitely one of the most appropriate and fun ways of discovering the natural beauties hidden at the bottom of the gorges.
Meet at 9:00 am or 1:00 pm at “Adventure Forest”, close to Castellane (SEE THE ACCESS MAP).
The ABOARD rafting guides will be there to welcome you and to hand out your equipment and you are ready to go. You will be then driven to the Samson corridor with an ABOARD Rafting bus (20 mn. drive).
Equiped with a wetsuit, a helmet and a life jacket, you will use the current to carry you along the river and take you to discover the Verdon’s best-kept mineral secrets. A “water ramble” not only implies floating, but also jumping and swimming in clear water, or walking around rapids, fallen trees or any obstacle we might encounter.
Thanks to this simple technique, the naturals beauties hidden at the bottom of the gorges do not escape our eyes, and you can enjoy a refreshing and exciting moment. We will then ramble our way through a maze of rocks (well-named “les Labyrinthes”). We will eventually reach the end of the Samson corridor where we will get out of the river.
Once out of the water, there is a 20 minutes walk on the Sentier Martel trail to reach the Samson view point road, where we will be driven back to Castellane.
