Activities in Alpes-de-Haute-Provence
Especially in the southwest, which is less touristy, you can find some hidden and beautiful places. Manosque, for example, is perfect for an excursion. The town is located on a hill surrounded by olive groves. The famous lavender fields are also nearby. The medieval town centre with its pretty houses and impressive monuments invites you to explore.
The Verdon Gorge, also known as the Grand Canyon of Verdon, is definitely worth a visit. Turquoise blue water flows through the 21 km long canyon. There are unique hiking routes around the gorge.
Or are you more in the mood for a beautiful boutique hotel near the Verdon Gorge in the hills of Provence, not too far from the lavender fields of the region?
Another highlight is the Mercantour National Park in the north of the province of Alpes-de-Haute-Provence. It stretches along the border with Italy and offers a multitude of lakes and mountains. Its proximity to both the Alps and the Mediterranean Sea ensures a special diversity of flora and fauna. The national park is suitable for both relaxed walks and advanced hikers.
