Are you looking for a rock climbing experience designed especially for beginners? Then follow me and learn the basics in a scenic area of France: the Calanques!

Created in 2012, the Calanques National Park is located in southern France. It includes part of the Massif des Calanques, a group of impressive rock formations stretching along a 20-km coastline. Its main cliffs go from the outskirts of Marseille to Cassis, a popular beach destination.

Dominated by limestone walls rising vertically from the Mediterranean Sea, this landscape has a unique natural beauty. Furthermore, it has rich and varied plant life and is home to unusual birds such as the Peregrine Falcon.

This program is perfect for those who want to step into the world of rock climbing or beginners who want to improve skills. We will get used to the equipment and practice the basic movements. The Calanques offer thousands of routes!

The initiation to rock climbing is a fun and demanding activity at the same time. In order to learn to climb safely, it is necessary to do it under expert guidance. Keep in mind that you can join me for half-day, full-day, or several days.

So, if you are up for this rock climbing trip in the Calanques, please get in touch with me. Let’s discover a unique region and climb some stunning cliffs together!

I also offer a unique overnight excursion in which you have the chance to spend the night on a portaledge in the Calanques!

Marseille, France.
