Description

Join me as I lead you through the Calanques National Park, reaching the peak of Mont Puget, a view packed with stunning landscapes of the French Mediterranean coast.

The return of spring resuscitates the life of the Calanques National Park. Opened in 2012, and stretching from Marseille to Cassis, the park is packed with biodiversity and sublime landscapes.

Limestone rocks, towering cliffs hanging off the southern coast, which are a mineral treasure.

Hiking to the highest peak on Mont Puget, dazzling sea panoramas begin to emerge. From here appears sublime sights.

The Calanque du Sugiton (Cliffs of the Roof) that rise from the Mediterranean waters, and clothed in greenery.

La Grande Candelle (The Big Candle), sticks out among the Calanques, rising 465 meters, and is popular with rock climbers.

The beautifully rugged spires of the Cliffs of Devenson, piercing over the Mediterranean sea.

The top of Mont Puget is covered with narrow limestone rock, like needle spikes soaring at the skies. Below, watch the waters of the Mediterranean glisten.

Even though the level of activity is easy to moderate, the hike includes hours of walking on soft but also rugged terrain. Therefore, it requires a good level of fitness.

Reserve your place to reach the summit of Mont Puget, the peak of the Calanques National Park, and surround yourself in sublime panoramas of the French south coast.

Mountain Leader

My passion is hiking and it has been since I was a child. I am a Mountain Leader, ready to make you gain altitude!
My goal is to live adventures in a wild nature. And there are as many possibilities as varied landscapes and seasons!
Always looking for new spaces, privileged and authentic moments, a preserved and wild nature... It's above all about plenitude and contemplation, trying each time to understand the beauty of the sceneries.
I am a former lawyer, also ski patroller specialized in nivology and meteorology. I cross the massif ski touring during the winter for my own pleasure.

I booked a tour with Fabrice on late May, definitely the highlight of my holiday, we went on a hike around Casterino It was a relaxed hike with great sights of mountain forests and lakes, I got to see some of the local fauna and flora of the park, ibex, marmots, chamois, although not as much as they would be in the area, possibly because of the wolfs (we saw some footprints). Overall it is a great way to see the surroundings. I would definitely recommend Fabrice as a guide for your next hike!
