The Verdon in its upperpart flowes throughout a small river-bed, with very sharp turns, steap walls and welcomming eddy’s. It gives you already a small idea of the Grand Canyon du Verdon more streamdown, but than in a kind of miniature version.
For us this is quite enough, to practise our first eddyhopping descent, and to train our-selfs in choosing the ideal line in narrow passages. We will need all those skill’s for the fourth day, when the Gorge de Daluis is on the program ; a superb red gorge in where we have lunch halfway down, just beside a beautiful waterfall.
The last day we will paddle from Castelane direction Gorges du Verdon; paddling further troughout the Gorges is only accessible to wildwater-experts. But still it is possible to have a glims of this monument of nature, using the Sentier Martel, named after the explorer who made his first descent down in a bark.
