About Jean-Bernard Letemple
and his partners, hiking guides







Jean-Bernard Letemple,
a welcoming outdoor professional and hiking tour organizer 
working in an independant team of accredited hiking guides



Passionate local guides

For fifteen years, I have succeeded in expanding my activity as a guide,  turning my passion into my profession, without the need for an extra income.

All my colleagues are UIMLA certified hiking guides who 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. We will select with you the best routes according to your wishes and abilities, together with the conditions of your stay. You will find us approachable, accommodating and eager to make your experience here a memorable one.  

And with us, walking with a guide in Provence is possible in four languages : we can speak 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.

I am an accredited 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 business 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.

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.

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. 



I am an International Mountain Leader (UIMLA). 

My certificate : Brevet d’État d’Accompagnateur en Moyenne Montagne
   (French State Mountain Leader certificate). 























Thank you for your confidence !
