Descente en rappel

Incentive with climbing, mountaineering, etc.

The ProvenceAlpsRiviera region offers a multitude of sites for climbing, mountaineering, potholing, via ferrata or high rope activities as part of an incentive event incorporating an introduction to vertical sports. From the deep rocky inlets of Marseille to the cliffs of the Verdon, by way of Mount Sainte Victoire, from the chasms of the Aix en Provence hinterland to the sinkholes of the Caussol plateau, from the Baous of the Nice hinterland to the Tête de Chien jutting out over Monaco, from the Mercantour Massif to the Ecrins Massif, the sites for all these sports are as beautiful as each other and offer landscapes and experiences that are out of the ordinary, and indeed in the case of potholing, out of this time! Longitude 7, a Destination Management Company located in the heart of the region will lend its expertise in the bespoke organisation of your corporate event and will incorporate vertical sports into it.

5 good reasons for choosing vertical sports for your seminar, incentive or team building event in the Provence-Alps-Riviera region

  • This introduction to the 3rd dimension brings the participants together as it requires them to adapt to a new environment together and demands team spirit and team cohesion

  • Recreational, safe high rope courses bring out the big kid in us all and combine very well with other team building workshops

  • Steps, ladders, bridges, continuous cables, etc. real vertical highways accessible to all, the via-ferrata offer an initial introduction to climbing and make it possible to feel the unique spirit of a roped team with your guide even at this early stage

  • The introduction to climbing or potholing with a qualified instructor is a training school in paying attention to others and discovering your own abilities to find solutions and go forward where it seemed impossible

  • In mountaineering, the conquest of even a modest summit in the Ecrins Massif led by a high mountain guide, is an extraordinary coaching method for welding a team together. The feeling you get as part of a roped team will never fade

Our favourite vertical sports moments in the Provence-Alps-Riviera region

  • The feeling of freedom while climbing 1 metre above the water in the deep rocky inlet of Sormiou

  • The splendid view over the French and Italian sides at the summit of the Gélas, at 3143 meters the highest point of the Mercantour Massif and the Alpes Maritimes

  • The "sensation of empty space" on the monkey bridge on the via ferrata in Peille and its splendid view down into the village

  • The sunrise and view of the white glacier on the magnificent high north east face of the Ecrins and the whole 4,101 meters clothed in pink and white
