The falls are fantastic and magical, the granite cliffs magnificent. The roads are winding though, so beware.....but it's worth the effort. And visit Gourdon, a wondrousl hill village perched high above the sea.

Well worth the drive - take a leisurely trip around the Loup loop and have lunch overlooking the river on a sunny terrace set in the hills - fantastic!

After seeing the Gorges du Verdon, weren't expecting any better, we were wrong! Good access, although a few interesting 'hairpins' - stunning views - saw the waterfalls also! Visited Gourdon at the top, well worth a stop. Did the circular tour by following a normal 'map' and well worth it.

We parked in a layby on the road under a huge overhang and walked down a steep scrambly track to the water. With 6 kids under 10 and 5 adults plus picnic it was a bit nervy walking down but we got there without mishap and we were rewarded by a fantastic experience. The views were spectacular, the water ice-cold,... More

Unbelievably we found the Gorges very easily. I put this in my satnav “438-446 Route des Gorges, 06140 Tourettes-Sur-Loupe, France" and find myself literally 100m from where I needed to be! (This never happens!) Found a space in a layby on the right (although these are very hard to find) and walked up the road a 100m to find a... More

We parked in Bar sur Loup and did the well marked trail UP to village of Gourdon. It was quite a pull up towards the end but the views were wonderful all the way and a great sense of achievement once we got there! A loop back to Bar s Loup made sure it was not just a 'there and... More

This is the French equivalent to the Grand Canyon. One of the most beautiful natural monument to visit in France. The drive is full of surprises at every turn, the scenery is stunning. Once there, well you have a choice of things to do, rock climbing, bungee jumping, walk, or just breath and take your fill of fresh air. Jaw... More

This route is definitely worth travelling. You dont have to travel far before your first stop, and you are just wonder what everyone is looking at. Amazing views with share cliffs dropping away, looking down into a ravine far below. We spotted 5 hawkes/eagles/falcons (along those lines) just drifting on the uplift. Also plenty of picnic spots along the way.

Lovely drive through the gorges, and there is a viewing place where you can stop and take photos.. There is a small cost to view the cascades, but well worth it
