Verdon Canyon
road itinerary options

Route des Cretes

The best is the "Crest Route". This is a 23-kilometer (14 mile) one-way loop road on the right bank (north rim).

Corniche Sublime

It is outstanding, too. It is on the left bank (south rim) and is longer than the Route des Cretes.


You can combine the two routes for a 100-kilometer (60-mile) trip. There are many tempting viewpoints - and, in the peak summer tourism period - the roads are congested. So, plan on a full-day excursion.
