Looking for an Adventure of a Lifetime? Take a Drive Around Verdon Gorge, Paris


Beautiful. Marvelous. Breathtaking.

Those are just some of the words that are often used to describe Gorges du Verdon, or Verdon Gorge, Paris.

The mountains are so prepossessing of a sight that it is not an easy feat to paint the picture using only words. But that has not stopped many before us to write in the praise of Verdon Gorge, and it won’t stop us today either.

Since Verdon Gorge is close to the tourist hub of French Riviera, which is the heart of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (PACA) region of France, it sees many tourists on a usual basis that come after hearing similar tales of its aesthetics.

Architecture 3317777 640What makes the mountain range so alluring is that it is not just filled with rocky formations (no offense to you, Grand Canyon). Instead, the naturally intricate formations are full with lush green foliage, where those shades meet with the signature turquoise-green of the Verdon river, which is named after that very quality.

Another thing that makes the Verdon Gorge so exceptional is that the canyon has been cut through naturally. All of the formations that you can see in it remain completely gifted by Mother Nature herself. Judging by how the sun shines upon the Gorge every day, illuminating it in the most flattering manner, she seems to not have neglected it.

When you get a chance to drive through those man-made roads and explore the stunning sights up and close, you take it without much thought.
