We visited yesterday with our two kids aged six and eight. What an incredible place. Hiring a kayak and rowing out and swimming in the gorge was absolutely brilliant although it did feel a bit like the M25 at times. Bring an umbrella and lots...More

Amazing areas located around mountain & nature , water come from the mountains so very cold ! when you go with a kayak for example something to do is to "park" where you can and go visit the nature quickly ...

Wow.... Stunning... A beautiful place to visit Worth every penny Recommend a paddle boat in to the canyon 2 hrs 35 euros. No cafes there at all so eat before hand! There are restaurants and cafes along the Mountains. We took the scenic route.

My family and I visited the Gorges a week ago. It was fantastic! I wish we had allocated more time to spend in the area. It is fun to drive the canyon and stop to take advantage of all the views.

The north is LESS scary (I'm a nervous driver) - still be alert for other idiots. It's all beautiful. By the way, Moustiers is exquisite but full of visitors in very narrow streets. Be patient! There's almost no parking!

There are stops and lookouts throughout the gorge as well as villages such as Castellane at the start of the park and Moustier at the end. Both worth stopping and having a look or having a cup of coffee. As for the lookouts... More
