The Gorges de Trévans, located in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence department in France, in the commune of Estoublon, about thirty kilometres from Digne-les-Bains, are a must-see destination for nature and hiking enthusiasts. With a length of about 5 kilometres, these narrow and deep gorges dug by the river Éstoublaïsse offer a breathtaking natural landscape. The Gorges de Trévans are classified as a biological reserve, a sensitive natural area and a Natura 2000 zone. If you are attentive, you will come across some forty species of birds and bats and perhaps, who knows, a few chamois.
In the Middle Ages, a group of monks looking for an isolated place to pray settled in the valley and founded the Saint-André monastery. Today the fortified monastery is in ruins, but it bears witness to past life in the Gorges de Trévans, as do the abandoned buildings of the hamlet of Valbonnette that you will pass on your way.
The limestone cliffs that line the gorge are a breathtaking sight, and visitors can admire the fascinating geological formations while enjoying the fresh, clean mountain air. The Gorges de Trevans is also part of the Verdon Regional Nature Park, a protected area renowned for its natural beauty and ecological wealth.
For travellers looking to explore the area, there are many accommodation options at our campsite. The area is also full of outdoor activities, such as hiking, climbing, canyoning, mountain biking and much more.
All in all, the Gorges de Trévans is an ideal destination for nature and adventure lovers. With a magnificent natural landscape, exceptional ecological wealth and numerous outdoor activities, the region is a natural jewel to be respected and explored with eyes wide open.
Enjoy your visit!
