Aquatic hike in the Verdon gorges
The Imbut aquatic hike is an unique activity of its kind. Remarkable landscapes will appear as you follow the path of the river, crossing by the Styx, the Estelier and the Chaos bloc of the Imbut. A rather big cavity waits for you at the end of the river. You will dare test your recklessness with the multiple jumps it contains?
The aquatic hike is an unlimited supply of jumps of all heights, in a turquoise water. It is an entertaining activity, as is consists of both peaceful passages and fun spots.
Specificity: The water flow changes accordingly to the water drop of a EDF dam located above the activity. Thus, this activity is solely practicable when the water flow allows it.
The Imbut aquatic hike is an day activity that requires a good physical shape. None of the jumps are mandatory. You should be confortable in water for this activity.
