    From the village to the Artuby bridge, the Verdon stretches out its dazzling gorges. Follow the RD 71 road, built during 5 years and inaugurated in 1950.

    Your first stop at the viewpoint of Col d'Illoire will let you discover, 300 metres lower down, the emerald green ribbon of the Verdon river, and its entrance to the Sainte-Croix lake.

    By continuing on your way towards the Artuby river, you will discover the Vaumalle cirque grandiose viewpoint. Its beech plantation is one of the most beautiful of the Var département.

    The next step is at the Cavaliers viewpoint, where the terrace of the restaurant gives a breathtaking outlook ; here is the start of the Imbut trail. Then you can go to the Fayet tunnel, highest point of the Corniche Sublime.

    Before leaving Aiguines' area, you have to discover the Artuby bridge, thrown on both sides of this small winding river, 180 metres lower down. This bridge is the meeting point of bungee jumping lovers.

    A few kilometres further on, you'll discover the Balcons de la Mescla, the last viewpoint over the Gorges on the left bank.
