Europe’s Grand Canyon – Gorges du Verdon

Play this segment2 min, 00:49-02:55

Gorges du Verdon, sometimes called Europe’s Grand Canyon, is strangely not very well known to us northerners. There are cliffs that drop 700 m straight into the incredibly beautiful azure blue water. The road around the canyon winds its way through tunnels and along dizzying rock ledges. The river flows into the lake Lac de Sainte-Croix where you can take a refreshing dip.
