Celebrate River Rafters at the Radeliers de la Durance
Every year, in late May or early June, dive into the past at the Radeliers de la Durance. This traditional festival brings an ancestral trade back to life. The radeliers brought wood to the Mediterranean on rafts, but their metier disappeared at the end of the 19th century due to the rise of the railway. To watch this show, which looks like a living historic fresco, head to the banks of the Durance, to l’Argentière-la-Bessée.
