Hiking and abseiling in the Marseille Calanques

The whole marketing team of a well-know brand belonging to a world leader in sports equipment, asked Longitude 7 to plan and organize their sport-based team building day close to Marseille.

After being taken by road to the superb Morgiou calanque, participants were welcomed in a small fishing port by our qualified climbing instructors. The entire team then set off to explore the hidden pathways and magnificent panoramic views of this craggy coastline until they reached the Cap de Morgiou.

In this untamed setting, far from the madding crowd, abseiling ropes had been set up for a dramatic, adrenalin-pumping but totally safe descent overlooking the sea for those who wanted to have a go…A simple climbing route was also available for those who wanted an introduction to the most popular sport of the Marseille calanques!

To crown this quality day thoroughly enjoyed by everyone, participants had a delicious Provencal picnic overlooking the cliffs and the sea…..a fabulous and rare moment to savour in the month of December!
