Driving the Blue Coast
Nothing quite matches the beautiful drive along sandy bluffs and Calanques that the blue coast offers in the south of France. Relax as we drive you to all the beautiful locations in the Calanques and along the coast for an unforgettable experience that you'll just want to keep coming back for.
Learn from a passionate professional
Our photographers are both passionate and knowledgeable about photography and the area. We take you to all the good spots and let you enjoy the journey along the way. We capture as many sunrises and sunsets as weather and the small group will allow, and after shooting, we return to the hotel for a couple post-editing tutorials.
Group size & Options
Not everyone runs at the same pace, and our tours are built to accommodate everyone. We keep group sizes small, so everyone will have some one on one time with the pro. We also will offer different options for everyone. Perhaps someone wants to work on astrophotography late at night, maybe someone else really wants sunrises. We try to be as flexible as possible, so you don't feel like you have to do everything, but you can still get as most out of the experience as you want.

Aug 18-20, 2017
The first day kicks off when we meet you at the airport or train station in Marseille around noon. We take you to the hotel to drop off your luggage and have lunch before we start down into the city center and hike up the hill to the castle park overlooking the city and the coast, and then begin the last hike up to the tower of Notre Dame for a beautiful sunset over the city.
The second day we head out early for a sunrise over the calanque and hike down and around the En Vau calanque. From there we drive to Cassis for lunch and take a boat tour to the calanques. After that, we drive up the coast to a beautiful lookout over the sea. We then return to the hotel to relax and for a post-editing session. Then we head back out for sunset at one of your favorite spots from the day.
We wake up early again for one last sunrise over the coast. Then it's time to pack, check out, we take you back to Marseille, and say goodbye.
The first hike in Marseille and the later hike to En Vau can be somewhat rigorous. Both are on very easy trails, but have somewhat steep inclines. We will go slowly, but if you have health concerns please let us know and we can have you stay above at En Vau and can drive you to the cathedral in Marseille.
You will arrive in Marseille at either the airport or train station and we will pick you up from there.
After checkout from the hotel in Cassis, we will drive you back to Marseille to your linking hub of transportation
We will stay at three and four star hotels in Marseille and Cassis.
Meals will be provided for you and will consist of breakfast lunch and dinner. If you have any health concerns or diet restrictions please let us know beforehand, so we can accommodate you the best that we can.
