Verdon Summer Activities

Climbing

The Verdon climbing scene is well established and its reputation well deserved. The dramatic and deep limestone gorge offers a wealth of rock routes for all ability levels. Although the exposure is high, the grading is relatively moderate and it acts as a prime location to work on moves on committing rock terrain but in a safe environment. The majority of routes are bolted and the belay stances and abseil bolts solid.

Canyoning

Some of the most beautiful and pristine canyons are located in and around the Verdon Regional Park. Ranging from half day routes to full day excursions, you will find yourself being abseiled into pools and sliding down waterfalls. Definitely not for those who don’t like commitment as once you are in, there is no turning back!

Multisports

If you can’t decide, or you don’t fancy a week of the same activity then the multisport weeks are designed more for those wanting a holiday and chance to relax though not too much!

  • The UCPA has its own bar which is slightly cheaper than anywhere else in the resort. It has a pool table, comfy seats and a good atmosphere.

  • UCPAs are like an upmarket hostel. However, they are always comfortable and if you want to meet people, the rooms of 4-6 are a great way of doing so. Even better is most of the UCPAs have some twin rooms...

  • The food is great and there is tons of it from breakfast, lunch, snack time (after your day on the slopes) and dinner in the evening. My favourite meal this year was on the Thursday evening when it was...

  • There is always a range of ages, nationalities, mixtures of solo travellers, couples, groups etc.  We have booked as a group of 6, a group of 36 (no joke) and even just me and my boyfriend – it works for all.

  • Action Outdoors set up a personal group page and as a group leader, I did’t have to worry about taking everyone’s payments. Each group member is responsible to pay their own way through the group page directly to Action Outdoors. Win!
