Only to say I will be doing the gorge next year as part of the Route Napoleon run and have been advised to do the gorge anticlockwise - along the north side(D952) to Moustier st Marie then back along the south side(D957 / D19 / D71 / D90 / D955). Starting and stopping at Castellane.

Hi panman,

I rode the Route Napoleon and Gorge du Verdon a few years ago, and maybe my GPX-files (http://www.majaeger.de/site/bike/gps/provence.zip) may come handy for you :thumb2.

Cheers

Mike

Whichever route you choose make sure it's not the middle one.

It's a long long way in a canoe :rob

I did pretty well the same route in July 2010, stunning scenery and nice roads. We started just outside Castellane for an early picnic lunch and did this (http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?saddr=D4085&daddr=43.77587,6.24556+to:Bd+de+la+R%C3%A9publique %2FD4085&hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=43.808518,6.402283&spn=0.19251,0.327873&sll=43.855697,6.546993&sspn=0.100264,0.110893&geocode=FQQHnQIddmdjAA%3BFX73mwIduExfACl5Gk7-BvDLEjERWML8pRkIEw%3BFZQInQIdgmVjAA&doflg=ptm&mra=dme&mrsp=2&sz=13&via=1&t=m&z=12) in the afternoon. Being a Sunday the square at Castellane was crammed with bikes, they were all gone by the time we got back in the evening. We camped here (http://www.camping-fredericmistral.com/), pleasant site close to town centre. Ate at a restaurant in the square in the evening. Would certainly include Castellane as an overnight stop off on any future trip to the area.

It reflects the sky.

Many swimming pools in the south of France look blue, but their tiles / paint are white.

... and its the very high mineral content. You get the same thing in Canada.

Have a look round Entreveux village, citadel and the motorcycle musee - well worth a stop but the only hotel (Vauban) in the village is a bit crap. Maison de Julie nearby gets good write-ups though.
