Activities

UCPA Verdon is perfect for climbers, white water kayakers, walkers, mountain bikers plus those that enjoy the adrenaline of canyoning, zip wires and via ferrata’s. With courses suitable for beginners and experts! 

Town Centre

The sleepy and historic town of La Palud sur Verdon is where climbers tend to converge due to the range of accommodation options available. Rough camping is strictly forbidden in the park which means that people congregate here bringing the bars alive in the evening with talk of mighty ventures and exposure. 

UCPA Centre

The UCPA is centrally located within the town and offers a style of accommodation that can best be described as a climbers lodge – clean, simple and welcoming with meals served on a sun trapped terrace and a huge garden criss-crossed with slack lines and hammocks. It is located next to a fantastic café so an après drink is inevitably on the cards too. No matter which activity you take part in you will leave feeling relaxed possibly due to the surrounding lavender fields or the French way of life!​

Testimonials

  • There is always a range of ages, nationalities, mixtures of solo travellers, couples, groups etc.  We have booked as a group of 6, a group of 36 (no joke) and even just me and my boyfriend – it works for all.

  • The food offers great variety, choice (several options each night), quantity (as much as you want) and quality is decent.  Cheese and yoghurts coming out of your ears, packed lunch option, afternoon tea and cake and you can drink your own wine at dinner.

  • Alongside the excellent equipment, lessons, food and accommodation, the thing that brings me back year on year is the atmosphere, as made by the people who go to UCPA.
