Welcome to Explore-Provence

Based in St-Andre-les-Alpes in the Parc Regional de Verdon we love to explore this beautiful region of Provence that extends from the alpine mountains of the Mecantour National Park and follows the river Verdon to the very dramatic Gorges de Verdon.

Our aim is to help you to have a great adventure.

On explore-provence you will find helpful information about the adventure activities that we are most passionate about: hiking; mountain biking, road cycling and paragliding.

We can assist you by providing:

  • Advice on the best routes and locations to visit
  • Equipment Hire: bikes; rucsacs, walking poles, maps.
  • Assistance with travel to and/or from your chosen activity
  • Guiding you on your adventure
