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!

Testimonials

  • Describing the UCPA is difficult. Not because there is a lack of adjectives to adequately convey the amount of fun you’ll have while you are there, the friendliness of the instructors, the quality of the food...

  • One click and you’ve booked everything. No searching around for lessons, ski-hire etc. And the best thing is you can keep adding people to your group.

  • The kit is top quality and new and there is a workshop for any adjustments or changes you may require during your week.

  • I wish I had discovered UCPA earlier. 
    Oliver P
  • Alongside the excellent equipment, lessons, food and accommodation, the thing that brings me back year on year is the atmosphere, as made by the people who go to UCPA.
    Elliot B
  • I love the system at UCPA where you can go as a group of friends, but still spend a full day out with other people right at your own level. 
    Amelia S
  • The food offers great variety, choice (several options each night), quantity (as much as you want) and quality is decent.  Cheese and yoghurts coming out of your ears, packed lunch option, afternoon tea and cake and you can drink your own wine at dinner.
    Anna R
  • All UCPAs are very friendly and sociable. The bar and dining areas are open with big tables, encouraging people to sit together and get to know each other. This makes it very easy as a solo traveller.
