The Gorges du Verdon is a 2,300-foot-deep river canyon in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence department in southeastern France. It stretches for over 30 miles between two points: le Point sublime et le pont de Galetas. It is the biggest canyon in Europe.
Formed thousands of years ago by the Verdon River which slowly but surely cut through the limestone terrain, the Gorges du Verdon has been a huge tourist draw since the 1930s. These days, more than one million visitors come every year.
