I invite you to join me for a multi-pitch rock climbing experience in a stunning location, the Calanques National Park, located in the region of Provence in southern France. You can join me for a half-day or a full day climbing tour.

The Calanques is a unique place, not only for its great climbing routes ,but for its magical scenery of white limestone cliffs above the crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. The main Calanques cliffs stretch from the outskirts of the city of Marseille to the beach town of Cassis.

The area offers thousands of routes for a fantastic climbing adventure. We will choose together the route that best suits your level and wishes.

About the guide

My name is Guillaume. I am a certified Rock Climbing Instructor in the Calanques, offering guided tours from Marseille to Cassis and everywhere in Provence.

I have been passionate about climbing since I was I child. I was initiated very early into climbing thanks to the mountain club of my hometown, Villemur sur Tarn, a small village in the south west of France. I had my first classes on the rock of Saint Antonin Noble Val, in the gorges of Aveyron.

During a trip with friends, I discovered Marseille and especially its national park. The beauty of the landscapes, the sun, the sea, and the endless number of climbing routes totally seduced me! After a year already planned in Quebec, I decided to validate my university degree in computer science. I applied to the last year of Computer Master at the Faculty of Luminy and moved to Marseille.

My passion for climbing became my profession a few years later, following a professional reconversion. More than 10 years later, I still live close to this beautiful area that is the Calanques and climbing in all its forms remains forever a passion.

I had a fantastic morning in the Calenques with Guillaume. He offered me a pick up from la Ciotat and dropped me off afterwards on town, both not part of the trip I booked! The climb was beautiful, the route challenging but I had excellent guiding/instructions! Will come back for sure! :-)
