Here's the brief from Kiki's original article:

  • Location: Les Gorges du Verdon is in the centre of the Provence region of France, and it is an easy day trip from the French Riviera
  • Getting there: The closest town to the lake entrance is Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, then keep driving 6km out in the direction of Lac de Ste-Croix until you reach the bridge called Pont du Galetas (where you can park your car)
  • Things to do:
  • You can rent a boat at the Pont du Galetas bridge and explore the Gorge
  • Head to the beach to swim
  • There are over 1500 hiking routes for climbers, remember to bring hiking gears as there aren’t many casual paths
  • Kiki's Tips:
  • go there early to beat the crowds especially in the summer time
  • stay in the area and reserve a good full day to properly enjoy
