Les Calanques rock climbing day tours for beginners

E-S Adventure Guides, wants you to join him on this rock climbing tour for beginners in Les Calanques, in southern France.


Massif des Calanques

Stretching from Marseille to the town of Cassis, Les Calanques is one of France’s largest rock climbing areas. This 12-mile cliff band offers a true paradise for adventure lovers: over 3000 routes right above the vast French Mediterranean Sea. 

My plan is to get you to the best spots to learn basic rock climbing skills or improve them to become autonomous. The popular Calanque d’En Vau  is characterized by its walls of cliffs. Its climbing lines are bolted and easy to climb. Traversée Ramond, located in Castelviei, is a route without special technical difficulties, standing 100 m above sea level. Another option is the Arête de Marseille, a super-classic route of Les Calanques, first climbed in 1927.

Rock climbing on these limestone sea cliffs is unique. The white rock contrasts with the blue of the Mediterranean Sea and offers an amazing landscape. You will discover both beautiful climbing spots and gorgeous views.

So, if you are up for this climbing adventure in Les Calanques, please contact  me! I’ll be glad to guide you in this area that I know so well.

What people are saying about E-S Adventure Guides



We had a very exciting day with Willy! We had never done a via ferrata before and did Pont-a-Lesse and Marche-les-Dames in one day. Willy explained the different techniques very well and adapted to our wishes and the circumstances perfectly. Gauthier adviced us in the beginning correctly that Marche-les-Dames would be better for us than Les-Grandes-Malades in terms of difficulty. Overall we were very happy with the choice, spend a great day outdoors and can definitely recommend this adventure!



We had a really fantastic day of bouldering in Fontainebleau with our guide Ivan. He is very experienced and knows the region well. He showed us great boulders and routes that we would not have found on our own, and kept a good pace to keep us going for the full six hours.



My guide Ivan was friendly and helpful. With his tips I was able to climb routes that seemed impossible at first



Leo was brilliant, engaging with kids and always asked what we wanted. Top bloke all round



We got a guide for backcountry skiing in Chamonix. The guide was excellent in fulfilling our wishes even though the viability was poor and snow layer thin. Our goals was to in a quiet nature area with not too many people. We ended up with 1000 meter gain and a ski through the forest over a 6 hour period. I was one of my best ski experiences.
