Jean-Bernard Letemple,
a welcoming professional 
guide and hiking tour organizer 


For fifteen years, I have succeeded in expanding my activity as a guide and in making a living without the need for an extra income. I am working today in a team of ten certified hiking guides (International Mountain Leaders) who all live and work on the Provence territory.  Be confident about hiring a guide: my partners and I will keep you safe on every trail of this vast and varied region. You will find us approachable, accommodating and eager to make your experience here a memorable one. We can lead walking trips in four languages : English, French, German and Italian.












All of us are naturalist guides, especially knowledgeable about the so diversified
Mediterranean flora. In addition to the guiding of adult walkers, most of us steadily
lead teachers and their students on our hiking trails for outdoor interpretive classes.




Hiking is one of my greatest joys in life and I am happy to share my passion and knowledge with you, who come from all over the world to visit Provence, my beautiful and so diverse region. Provençal by my mother, I practice my activity in every corner of Provence with a various public in very different ways. And this diversity is essential to me. I am a certified professional hiking guide, member of the UIMLA (Union of International Mountain Leader Associations). On trails since 1999 as a guide, I have acquired a solid expertise in a wide range of trails and a large knowledge in many fields : natural environment, of course, but also history, art, food and wine – in a word, local culture. I am ever eager to share with my guests tidbits of information about the area we are exploring. My partners in outdoor recreation and education are local incoming agencies and tour operators, holiday clubs, hotels, tourist offices, high schools and other professional hiking guides. My family and I have been living in Provence since 2000, after a few years spent in Canada. Besides hiking, I am passionate about trail running, cooking, listening to music and watching movies. 

Come and share emotions with us ! 


My certifications : I am an International Mountain Leader.
