The Massif des Calanques in the south of France is an iconic destination for all travelers. From historic excursions to thrill-seeking adventures, sports enthusiasts and tourists alike have been seeking out the pristine cliffs of this unique region for quite some time now. It can provide an all-encompassing vacation with new enchantments and exciting explorations each time you visit.

You can find the Calanques snuggled along the coast between Marseille and Cassis, providing travelers seamless access to every nook and cranny. Comprised mostly of limestone, the majestic massif packs quite a punch for its small size. It is crawling with fabulous rock climbing routes that can occupy any seasoned outdoorsman for an entire life.

Your program places you directly into this scenic gem. Watch the sunset over the waves of the Mediterranean while you settle into a cliffside evening accompanied by mesmerizing views. This is a rare opportunity to feel the immense power of the gorgeous coast in a tangible way. We will embark on an adventure between the sea and the sky that is as charming as it is thrilling.

Our program is a wonderful opportunity to recharge your batteries in a beautiful setting that is unlike any other in the world. We will meet in the afternoon, explore the area, and find the best place to spend the evening under the stars. The evocative vistas will put you at ease as we wrap up our remarkable trip.

Each section of the Calanques has its own quirks and attributes. Depending on what you have in mind for your trip, we can tailor the perfect place for you to spend a fulfilling evening marveling at this masterpiece of nature. Let me know what you are looking for in your program and can make the vacation of your dreams come true.

The Calanques are my home, and it an absolute pleasure to introduce this amazing area to others. I will ensure you a safe and satisfying experience that will certainly stay with you forever. I will manage everything for you, including the logistics, and you can sit back and enjoy the Mediterranean Sea in a way that very few people ever have – or ever will.

If you are afraid of heights, this may not be a suitable trip for you. Winter will be too cold to enjoy this trip.

About the guide

guide profile img

Even as a kid, I knew I wanted to become a mountain guide. Growing up in Aix-en-Provence, in southern France, the Alps have been my playground since a very young age. Amazing climbing spots like the Calanques and Gorges du Verdon were just a stone throw's away from my hometown.

Eventually, I also became an architect, another long-time passion. As an architect, I lived in New York, Barcelona and Rotterdam and learned to speak fluent English and Spanish. I also met great people and had an amazing time while doing it!

I'm now back home in France and spend most of my time guiding in the Alps. I'll be happy to take you rock climbing, skiing or mountaineering to some of my favorite spots.
