L’itinéraire jour après jour...

Day 1

Welcome to Manosque station by your guide and transfer to Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. Visit of the village classified among the most beautiful villages in France. Church, ramparts, chapels, aqueduct, fountains, water and stone rings, pastel tones of tiles and tuff shape a homogeneous and living architectural ensemble. The sweetness of life that emerges naturally encourages us to respect and value this place, to discover and protect it. The work of the land perpetrated for centuries is the link between history and the future of the village.
Transfer to La Palud-sur-Verdon in the late afternoon, installation in your hotel for 5 nights. Transfer time: between 30 minutes and 1h.
Night and dinner at the hotel.

Day 2

Departing from Chiappera, we will climb to the bottom of the Maurin valley to reach the magnificent Bellino pass and its remarkable alpine sheepfolds. For the return, descent on Chiapperra by going around the most remarkable rock of the valley: the Rocca Provençale. Return to accommodation.
Night and dinner at the hotel
5 hours walk. Altitude difference: +800m  -800m

Day 3

After a short transfer to the hamlet of Michels, we take the old Roman road, at the foot of the Coudole ridge to reach the small hamlet of Chauvets, nestled at the foot of the Mourre Charnier. From this first part in the colors of Haute Provence, we climb one of the last highest peaks before the Mediterranean: the Chiran (1905m) which faces its twin the Mourre Charnier (1930m). Beautiful climb to the top, where we are greatly rewarded by the magical point of view that it offers on all the massif that makes up the Verdon. 
5.30am walk. Altitude difference: +650m  -650m

Day 4

Departing directly from Rougon, with a small approach with our personal vehicles (5mn journey), we set out to discover one of the most beautiful viewpoints on these deep gorges. Access to the viewpoint of Rancoumas is by a pleasant path in the forest, with a passage on the remarkable Pont du Tusset, which from its 32 meters, spans in a single arch the Verdon.
Night and dinner at the auberge or gîte.
5h walk. Altitude difference: +550m  -550m

Day 5

From Rougon, descent to the parking lot of Point Sublime, where we make a stop. Descent by the parking lot of Couloir Samson to the gorges. The Blanc-Martel Trail was completely redeveloped in spring 2013, including the Imbert Breach ladders. We begin this stage with an old tunnel several hundred meters long that was built at a time when hydroelectric engineers wanted to tame the Verdon to make electricity (a flashlight will be mandatory to cross the tunnel). We then walk along the entire cliff of the Escalès, known to climbers all over the world. Picnic break at the Baume aux Chiens, before the impressive climb of the ladders of the Imbert breach (without risk), famous and emblematic passage, in the heart of the gorges. Last climb towards La Maline to get out of the gorge. Note that this linear day can be done in both directions.
Night and dinner in hotel.
7h walk. Altitude difference: +650m  -600m

Day 6

This wild path takes us to the edge of the gorges, we take advantage of this last day to finally have a nice swim in these gorges with turquoise waters. After a quick descent to the river, we follow directly the water of the Verdon for 1.5km. A shorter day to allow us to get back on the road in the early afternoon and be at Manosque station by 4:30 pm.
3h30 walk. Altitude difference: +350m  -350m
