The trip starts only from La Palud-sur-Verdon (the "La Palud-sur-Verdon sud" stop). Due to a large number of hikers on the trail, we strongly recommend that you book beforehand. Booking closes every day at 6 pm. After booking closes, the number of seats available is displayed on the website until midnight and you can buy your ticket directly on board the bus (cash, credit card).
Please note that if you have not booked you may not be able to board the bus. Please book a ticket for another time or another day.
Morning one-way trip: La Palud-sur-Verdon sud → Chalet de La Maline (trailhead).
Afternoon return trip: Point Sublime (trail end) → La Palud-sur-Verdon sud.
Important! The shuttle bus does not return to Chalet de la Maline in the afternoon. If you wish to be able to fetch your car at the end of the day, you need to take a round trip and park in the village of La Palud-sur-Verdon)
The Round-trip ordered gives the departure time from the village of La Palud-sur-Verdon and the afternoon departure time from Le Point Sublime.
For example, if you book a trip «out 8.30 / back 3.30», the bus will leave at 8.30 in the morning from La Palud-sur-Verdon and will pick you up at 3.30 in the afternoon from Point Sublime to take you back to La Palud-sur-Verdon (Dedicated car park near the trailhead).
You can take the return bus at another time if there are enough seats available and on presentation of your round-trip ticket to the driver. Please check our website for the shuttles running on the day of your trip.
