6 hiking days in the breathtaking landscapes of les Calanques de Marseille-Cassis with Pascale, UIMLA mountain leader in love with the region.

Not specified

Massif des Calanques

6 Days

Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct


Description

One day at a time, discover Les Calanques and its beautiful landscapes where the sea is intimately tied to the land. A 6-day discovery journey between rocks and the sky, in the garrigue scents.

This hike in Les Calanques is one of my favourites for the following reasons:

  • A source in the middle of nowhere

  • The diverse landscape

  • The traces of past life

  • Prehistory under our feet

I like to go there after the winter, to escape from the white mountains during a week and enjoy those unique views of the Mediterranean. The contrast is amazing!

I know Les Calanques very well because I have climbed a lot. Also, a very close friend who lives there has showed me the area from a local point of view.

Below this description, you can find the daily hiking program in Les Calanques.

This is an intermediate-sustained hike. The difficulty depends on the technicality of the terrain and the aerial passages.

I invite you to contact me if you want to discover this corner of paradise. I would be happy to guide you in Les Calanques, a place that I love very much.

About the guide

I'm a UIMLA mountain leader, a rescuer and a journalist. Since 18 years, the mountain is my office and my full-time job. My passion is about to transmit the small and big secrets of nature but also to allow everyone to find his right balance in an environment which might appear as hostile but which is actually a large reservoir of unsuspected individual energy. Here in the mountain, the masks fall down and that's the good point of it !

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
