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.

Accommodation

In a hotel (double room).

About the guide

guide profile img

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 !
