This Mediterranean coast, also known as the French Riviera stretches from Monaco in the east through to Marseille some 200 km to the west. The coastline is littered with white limestone crags, beautiful emerald-colored seas, beaches, and Calanques set amongst beautiful Provençale towns. The climate is warm and stable making rock climbing on the Côte d’Azur a reliable destination for a winter sport climbing trip. With good knowledge of all of the major climbing destinations in the region, we are proud to offer bespoke guiding, instruction, and coaching in some of the finest climbing areas including Les Calanques, Mt. Saint Victoire, Châteauvert, Gorges du Loup as well as the Gorges du Verdon.
The summer months in the South of France can be very hot, so if you are planning a trip during this period it’s well worth considering areas with a higher elevation such as the Verdon Gorge. However, the autumn and winter months generally offer more pleasant temperatures to explore some of the more coastal crags. The prices indicated below are for guiding and instruction only, and do not include flights or accommodation. Please get in touch if you would like a quote for a complete package or would simply like some advice about venues and places to stay.
No previous outdoor climbing experience is required, however, some previous indoor climbing experience is desirable.
