Activity description

Walk along the cliffs just a few meters above the Mediterranean Sea on the via corda course of the Trou Souffleur in La Ciotat!

In the heart of the Calanques National Park, east of Marseille, the via corda of the Trou Souffleur in La Ciotat offers a course mixing climbing and hiking on cliffs close to the sea. Between abseiling, climbing and a zipline traverse, you will have a fun and entertaining time with your friends and family, in a small group of 10 participants maximum!

A state-qualified guide will be there to ensure your safety all along the via corda of the Trou Souffleur, which you will be secured with a harness and 2 carabiners. Depending on the level of the group, you will be able to take more or less breaks during the activity, which will offer you superb panoramic views of the sea and the cliffs around the Trou Souffleur, a site so named because of the breath and noise caused by the crashing of the waves on the cliff.

If you are looking for a very accessible sport experience with some sensations in the Calanques National Park, the via corda of the Trou Souffleur in La Ciotat will seduce you!

Un grand merci à Romuald notre guide qui a été au top toute la journée. C'est pas facile d'encadrer des groupes, en plus sur toute la journée. A aucun moment on a senti de la lassitude chez Romuald qui fait ça pourtant depuis des années.
