1/2 day

5 h

08h30 - 13h30

The massif of Canaille is the highest sea cliff in Europe (394 m), an agglomeration of rocks offering diverse playground, ideal for adventure.

The path of the Philemon is a sporting and sensational course since it combines abseiling, cave visit and easy climbing on the cliff of Cap Canaille. From the belvederes of the "Route des Crêtes", overlooking the towns of Cassis and La Ciotat, you will wind in this ocher-colored cliff, sculpted by time and sea winds.

Isolated and open towards the sea and the bay of Cassis, many concretions and caves will lead to promontories and give to this course an indescribable atmosphere.
This adventure tour will take you out of the monotony of hiking, by going by wild or aerial passages. This activity requires the use of harnesses and ropes for crossing steep passages.

To carry

Sport shoes, wind jacket, snack, trousers, water (1,5L per person)
