Provence, located in the gorgeous Southwest of France, is one of the most special, charming and delightful areas of the country, and I will guide you as we undertake 1+ days of rock climbing in Sainte Victoire, a mountain ridge that provides exciting and wide-ranging climbing opportunities, all while exposing us to amazing views out over the sublime scenery of the French countryside.

Sainte-Victoire (1011m) is a limestone mountain ridge nestled within the Pic des mooches mountain range in Provence, France, and is notable for the cross that stands at its summit, the Croix de Provence. It has become an increasingly popular destination for outdoor activity enthusiasts, with hiking, climbing, paragliding and rock climbing all undertaken.

Over the course of every day we will be exploring and discovering every facet and area of Sainte-Victoire, with each section containing an abundance of rock climbing routes.

We will be aiming to increase your rock climbing skills and techniques, as well your confidence, with each program tailored to your specific skillset, and what you would like to work on.

Due to the sheer size of the mountain, there are opportunities to attempt single and multi-pitch routes, with trad and sport climbers able to enjoy themselves on the wide array of routes.

At the end of the trip hopefully you will have noticeably improved your rock climbing, as well as gotten even more hooked on this highly addictive and enjoyable activity, all while admiring and taking in the lush, lovely views over the French landscape, scenery and terrain.

About the guide

My name is André Bernard and I am a mountain guide (IFMGA certified) and rock climbing instructor from Marseille.

Since I was 12 years old, I have been passionate about mountains and rock climbing. With the help of several experienced instructors and guides, I became an expert in the activity and continued my training in Les Calanques. Exploring this amazing massif is one of the things that I love the most!

I have been actively involved in the creation of the Calanques National Park and have supported the work of professional guides in the area. In 2011, I founded the Bureau des Guides des Calanques/Cassis, which is focused on rock climbing, hiking, canyoning, mountaineering, and mountain biking and oriented to environmental education.

Take a look at my programs below and join me to live unforgettable experiences in Les Calanques!

Andre was amazing! He picked a route that suited our abilities, was courteous and gave as clear instruction as possible given the language barrier (neither my partner nor I speak much French, but it worked out just fine). My partner and I had a wonderful and memorable time. Our climb was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to France. Thank you! I would book him again as a guide any time!
