Description

Provence is a great region for outdoors activities. Indeed, the potential to do many of them is huge. That is why I organized a 6-day trip in which we will practice different disciplines.

Mas Montredon is a charming guest house located at the heart of the Camargue Regional Natural Park. It will be our base during these 6 exciting days. The perfect location of this accommodation will allow us to enjoy varied outdoor activities in all comfort, enjoying each morning a delicious breakfast and returning each evening to a cosy environment.

The activities can be: canyoning, hiking, equestrian hiking, climbing, via ferrata… You will see how magnificent Provence is!

When we go hiking, we will do it in the Alpilles, Gard of Vaucluse massifs. They are all beautiful destinations, with a typical air from Provence. The program also includes an equestrian hike, guided by a certified horse riding teacher. The via ferrata will be either in Alpilles or in Cavaillon, and rock climbing can be in Mouriès, Orgon, Cabaillon or Fontvieille. We will also descend a river canoeing, and practice canyoning. I think this gives you an idea of how complete the trip will be! For more information you can check out the daily itinerary below.

Are you tempted to try all of these activities during a fantastic week in beautiful Provence? Then make sure to send me a request and let’s start the adventure!

About the guide

guide profile img

IFMGA/UIAGM mountain guide
I come from Marseille and I found my passion for mountaineering very early, climbing Les Calanques, some mountains in the Verdon region and in the Alps. I got my IFMGA (mountain guide) certificate in 1983 and my ski instructor license in 1985.
I brought my clients on many summits of the Alps and went abroad to discover the world. I went skiing, climbing, mountaineering… in Morocco, Norway, Algeria (Hoggar), Yosemite (El Capitan) and Nepal. I discovered this passion for travelling and started to organize my first trips with my clients. In the late 80’, I went to the Annapurna Sanctuary and I did several ascents in Peru (Pisco, Yanapatcha and Huascaran). In the 90’, I did several trips in Nepal (Helambu, Langtang…).
I then kept on and further explored the world with my clients: Rolwaling traverse (Perchamo, Mera Peak Mingbo La), the summits of Yala Peak and the Yana Kanga, Patagonia (in Argentina), Manaslu tour in Nepal, Meso Kanto La, Mustang, Atacama desert in chili and many others.
I like bringing my clients mountaineering in summer and ski touring / heliskiing in winter.
Get in touch with me and let's discuss about your next guiding tour !
