A hike starting from Marseille
Guided hike in the Calanque National park
It is 9 am when our guide meet us at the small car-park located above the Baumettes. It is still chilly.The mist rises through the trees, anyway, we are going to warm ourselves up thanks to the sun coming up! We are immediately immersed thanks to Vanina who explains to us the tour. It is a 4 hours panoramic discovey hike of the Calanques National Park. Classified since 2012. It is the only French National Park to be at the same time terrestrial, marine, insular and peri-urban.
Indeed, we quickly realized by taking a little height that we have on one side the view of the sea. And on the other side the view of the city (with Notre dame de la garde posed on the hillside!). Hence the many problems of attendance and flow of visitors, who are each year very numerous to come and enjoy the Calanques.
