Spend a day climbing with Maxence, an IFMGA-certified mountain guide, and discover the amazing Calanque de Morgiou in the Calanques of southern France.
Climb above the crashing waves of the Mediterranean Sea.
Explore the stunning scenery of the Calanques of southern France.
Have an experienced guide design a safe and satisfying program just for you.
The Massif des Calanques are a French mountain range spanning the Mediterranean coast between Marseille and Cassis. The predominantly-limestone walls and cliffs are home to an array of amazing flora and fauna. One of the largest of the Calanques, the Calanque de Morgiou, is a former fishing village and even has an underwater grotto with cave drawings.
Your program takes place here, at Morgiou, where you will climb directly above the crashing waves of the sea. The picturesque white cliffs have some vegetation sprouting through the crevices and cracks, complimenting the contrasting beauty of the water and the rock.
Morgiou is relatively easy to access – it has become a tourist destination for sport enthusiasts. Its proximity to Marseille adds to its international appeal and availability to travelers, though its location in the central part of the Calanques still maintains its charming mystery.
You can enjoy single- and multi-pitches, along with climbs that feature the rush of the environment and the technical skill of the sport. Because of its size, Morgiou has many options and routes that are available to all levels of climber. It is a beautiful place to hone your craft, and you will undoubtedly fall madly in love with this amazing region.
There are also other activities to enjoy in the area, including a visit to the Cosquer Cave. This underwater grotto contains cave paintings that date back to the Upper Paleolithic, and can be accessed by divers.
While this is a day trip, it still presents some challenges along the terrain, so a moderate level of fitness and fortitude are required.
I will provide you with a safe and satisfying experience that you will want to repeat again and again. This location is one of the best places to enhance your passion for climbing. To do so above the Mediterranean is icing on the cake.

Even as a kid, I knew I wanted to become a mountain guide. Growing up in Aix-en-Provence, in southern France, the Alps have been my playground since a very young age. Amazing climbing spots like the Calanques and Gorges du Verdon were just a stone throw's away from my hometown.
Eventually, I also became an architect, another long-time passion. As an architect, I lived in New York, Barcelona and Rotterdam and learned to speak fluent English and Spanish. I also met great people and had an amazing time while doing it!
I'm now back home in France and spend most of my time guiding in the Alps. I'll be happy to take you rock climbing, skiing or mountaineering to some of my favorite spots.

Maxence was absolutely great! Super friendly and knowledgeable. With very little back and forth he was able to plan a perfect climbing day trip for us, including our first multi-pitch climb (and all of this was actually a backup plan, since the area we were going climbing was closed due to high winds). I look forward to going climbing again in Calanque and would not hesitate to book him again!!
We had a fantastic climbing day with Max. He was fun to hang out with. He set up lots of climbs that were fun for all the abilities of our group. He made us feel safe and confident. Max’s English is perfect which meant a lot to some of us.
The trip was extraordinary! Challenging yet very rewarding. Maxence was a great guide and a perfect companion.
Max was an AMAZING guide! He was super knowledgeable and was willing to teach us new climbing techniques. Not only did I have fun climbing outdoors, but I learned how to climb better outside. I highly recommend this trip! You won´t be disappointed!
I would like to recommend Maxence for his excellent guiding on Tuesday October 9th. We had a great time, felt safe and got in a lot of climbing. He was efficient and safe as well as super friendly. I am so glad I connected with him through your service. Thank you for finding him.I would hire him again if I was coming back to Europe for more outdoors activities.

Max took us on an amazing route in the Verdon and we had a fantastic day. He also helped us refreshed our multi-pitching skills so gave us the confidence to do routes ourselves after the guided climb. Thanks!
Had a great time with Max climbing at the Calanques. He picked a good route with lots of ambiance, and did a solid job leading me up it.
Me and my dad wanted to book a last minute guided rock climb in the Calanques. We came across Maxence through explore-share and he was very kind as he changed his timetable so that he could take us out at short notice. Me and my dad were a little nervous about rock climbing and Maxence very quickly put us at ease. He was friendly and warm and very encouraging when we were on the rocks. He took us to the most beautiful spot where we were the only ones climbing, and we had an amazing view of the Calanques. He took pictures for us and sent them to us afterwards. He also provided us with all the equipment that we needed and found us suitable routes to climb for our levels. We would recommend Maxence to anyone who wants to find a climbing adventure in the Calanques.
