Top 10 biggest waterfalls France

Home - Waterfalls in France - top 10 biggest waterfalls France

It ain't easy to determine a list with the biggest waterfall if you are talking about the volume (amount of water) in a waterfall. I can read and speak a little bit French but not enough to do proper scientific research. I also don't know if there are figures about the flowrates of rivers with waterfalls. 

Nevertheless I made a top 10 biggest waterfalls in France based upon a visual examination. There is a lot of photo material and I have been several times to France to visit the most impressive waterfalls.

Enjoy my list "top 10 biggest waterfalls in France"

Nr 1 biggest waterfall in France:

Grande cascade de Gavarnie - 200 m3/s

If you said, in forehand, that Grande cascade de Gavarnie is the waterfall with the biggest flowrate, I would say "really????". But if you walk closer to the base of the waterfall you will see how mighty this waterfall is. With a (maximum) flowrate of 200m3/sec in summertime this could be the biggest waterfall in France.
