One of Europe’s most beautiful canyons, Les Gorges du Verdon is about 25 km (15.5 mi) long and up to 700 m (2,296 ft) deep. The River Verdon, known for its turquoise color, carved out the gorge.

  • It does not matter where you stop, the view is stunning everywhere. There are some lakes that are so clear, you can see the bottom clearly! This is a must visit when you are in the south of France!  more »
  • The Canyon Valley, located between Nice and Shannon, is a famous natural view. It is not a self-driving conversation, you can join the day group, Nice or Shannon has a lot of choices. If the pilot technology is not too good, come to Canyon Valley to be very careful. This mountain road is narrow and bend, the road is not column, the Mountain road is suspension cliff, but also to the train, and on the road Super multi-tour bus. Be careful. There is an observation point in the middle of the Canyon Valley. There is a restaurant, hand washing room, as well as the cliff edge observation deck. Compared with the Great Canyon Valley in the United States, it feels completely different. There is no shortage of cool feeling, but the machine is full of life, flowing down the cliff into a glorious. Standing on the banks of the cliff, feel the magnificent scenery of nature, is a single look at the photos completely can not feel. When the time is not too much, Shannon or Nice, near the tour, is definitely worth a day to Canyon Valley/Holy Cross Lake.
