The Loup river is a wild and moody river, running for about 40km from Andon to Cagnes-sur-Mer, where it throws itself into the Mediterranean Sea.
It has carved out spectacular gorges, which you can best appreciate from the road starting at Pont-du-Loup, winding its way through the gorges, passing waterfalls, tunnels and bridges across the river deep down below.
Even by car you can enjoy these gorges; various walking paths also provide excellent views and photo opportunities.
In summer there are many places where you can go for a swim, and why not try to make your way upstream through the river bed?
Just a few minutes after the right turn into the Gorges, there is a picnic area to the right. A path leads down to the river, and over a stone bridge, offering beautiful views of the river, and a chance for a refreshing dip should you so wish !
