Description

The Verdon Gorge is a premium attraction for rock climbing enthusiasts. This is your opportunity to spend three days heading up its scenic vertical routes with an expert: join me!

The Verdon Gorge is a river canyon located in southeastern France, within the Alpes-de-Haute Provence. It consists of a 25km long and 700-meter deep limestone formation carved by the Verdon River. Protected by the Verdon Natural Regional Park, it is often considered one of Europe’s most beautiful gorges.

This iconic and internationally renowned area is perfect for rock climbing adventures. Situated near the glamorous French Riviera, its landscape is dominated by impressive cliffs and the turquoise-green color of the Verdon River.

On our 3-day trip, we will climb exciting walls that we will pick according to your skills and wishes. Verdon Gorge offers over 1,500 routes with options for all tastes: single pitch and multi-pitch, sport and trad! There are also lines for all levels, from short friendly routes to huge walls! However, this trip requires a good fitness level and some experience in multi-pitch climbs.

The nearby villages of Verdon Gorge, Castellane, Moustiers-Sainte-Marie and La Palud, are considered to be some of the most charming and picturesque in France. Far from city pollution and surrounded by awesome scenery, you will spend an unforgettable vacation!

So, if you are up for this rock climbing tour in France, please get in touch with me. Let’s spend three days at the unique Verdon Gorge!

Mountain Guide

I am Reccardo Olliveri, class 1975, registered to the Alpine Guide College of Piemonte since 2002 and graduated in environment and territory engineering at the Turin technical college. I live at Turin, but I am resident in the Alps where I practice the mountaineering activity all through the year; I love the void and I play every time I can; on rock, ice, dry tooling and also skiing.

Its with great passion that I continue practicing the mountaineering activity and I dedicate myself to pass on to all those interested to know, the spirit and the ability to dedicate oneself close to the mountain in all its forms.

Riccardo was an exceptional guide. On this 4 day skiing trip with him, he taught me how to ski tour and took me to many incredible locations. He was happy and able to help me whenever I got to a difficult location on the mountain and ensured I was always comfortable with what I was doing. Additionally, he is quite a great photographer so I got many nice photos from the adventure. I would definitely recommend Riccardo and this trip for anyone who is interested in trying off-piste skiing or ski touring.

I did the 4 day off piste at Mont Blanc. Riccardo is a very patient,funny and professional guide. He definitely speaks all 3 languages fluently and is accessible to ask questions and plan your ski trip. His vast knowledge about the mountain and skiing are incredible.He is always on time and checks the weather the night before to determine the iternary for the next day. He is very organized and helpful too. He even came with me to get my ski gear. He will always give you suggestions on which mountain and will ask what you would like to do. Due to the bad weather, I got to ski La Flegere and Le Tour. The views were still incredible and we had fresh powder snow. I had a great time and learned alot from him. It was an incredible experience that I will never forget and would definitely recommend him.
