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.
