Gorges du Verdon

Last week, we were on holiday in France, camping near the Gorges du Verdon. We were in a small village, Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, just north of the Lac de Sainte Croix, on the camping St. Jean (which I can highly recommend).

We had a great time. We have walked le sentier Martel (14 kilometers, 6 hours), rented waterbikes, swum in the lake, visited Cannes. The last morning, we went canyoning! That is really very much fun to do (if you’re not afraid of heights!). It’s part walking and abseiling, and part swimming, wading through the river and jumping off waterfalls. Very spectacular!

On Provence Web there is some more info about the gorges, about the village of Moustiers and about the lake.
And take a look at this site, which has some nice pictures of the gorges and the lake.

Update (July 16): The photos are now available from photos.bvrolijk.net, if you have the correct username and password, that is.
