Aquatic Trekking activity presentation
The Rando Aqua is the flagship activity of the Verdon, the only possibility to visit the great gorges or the grand canyon by swimming, it has become the essential activity in the region.
You will have to wait until the dam is closed on in July and August to come and visit the preserved and protected area of the Grand Canyon du Verdon.
You will have to walk for a quarter of an hour to get to the start, which will gently wake up the muscles.
The course is then a succession of swims in large pools of water, passages of small rapids and is punctuated by a few jumps for the intrepid, the rapids to be crossed are of low and progressive difficulty. This is why this course offered by Haute Provence Outdoor , is accessible from 8 years old and ideal to do with the whole family!
This hike allows you to discover an original activity and appreciate the Verdon from a different perspective, including the fabulous entrance to the Grand Canyon in the final part.
The “Pont de Tusset” aquatic hiking route is particularly well suited to the youngest and to people who wish to familiarize themselves with the activity while quietly discovering the Gorges du Verdon.

Presentation of the activity
Unlike canyoning,Aqua trekking is not a vertical activity, it does not require a rope and all obstacles can be avoided. During your descent, you will take turns swimming in large pools of turquoise water, passages of small rapids for the fun side and a few jumps for the more daring. The final will be in style, at the entrance to the Grand Canyon, the famous Samson corridor!
Once the descent is over, it will take you about 10 minutesto go up by the end of the Blanc Martel hike and find the mini-bus. Enjoy the view once you get to the top! You will then be taken back to the campsite where you can collect your belongings, before resuming your day!
