Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Your private custom-made tour begins with pick-up from your central Nice hotel and a scenic drive through the Provence countryside, following dramatic mountain roads and winding along the Verdon River.

    On arrival at the Verdon Canyon, jump out to admire the views over the gorge and take photos of its dazzling green waters, lush forested valleys, and soaring cliffs. Listen as your guide fills you in on the history of the canyon, which dates back to the Triassic Period (250-200 million years ago), and learn more about its unique Mediterranean and Alpine ecosystems.

    After visiting several observations decks for different views of the canyon, continue to the nearby town of Moustiers Sainte Marie, voted one of France’s most beautiful villages. Set out on a guided walking tour of the medieval village, stopping to admire its old fortress, and stroll its atmospheric cobbled streets. Before heading back to Nice, stop at one of the town’s restaurants for a delicious lunch (own expense) of delicious Provencal cuisine, accompanied by regional wines.

    On the return journey to Nice, take a detour through the famous lavender fields of Provence and stop to admire the dazzling expanse of purple (please note: the lavender fields are in bloom only during June, July, and early August). Finally, arrive back in Nice, where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
