ROCK CLIMBING FOR EVERYONE

For those who want to have the sensation of climbing on real rock, with guidance and insurance, and we can also transport you to and from your accommodation taking you directly to the activity site so you do not have to waste time looking for the way on maps. MORE! Climbing can be combined with our same-day hiking activities, so you can interact differently with nature in the same area and day.

Programs description
TASTER SESSIONS

No prior experience is needed – just the will to go and enjoy an outdoor adventure.

The session includes some yoga warm-up movements, tips on ethics in environmental and environmental conservation factors of the rock and surrounding environment, learning basic technical aspects (BELAYING, knots, carabinners, etc.), basic climbing movement and many climbing routes suitable for your level for you to explore!

We keep the instructor/participant ratio low (about 1:2 to 1:6) to ensure maximum attention to the participant, more flexibility in the session and more fun.

Sessions are available for groups of a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 12. (More than 12 elements? Only one person? Contact us and we will prepare a session for you). The sessions are suitable for children over 6 years old, but the younger ones can also wear the harness and climb on too.

SPORT CLIMBING GUIDED DAYS

These days are guided to help you make the most of the climbing opportunities on site, with supervision – you’ll enjoy a lot of climbing routes and we’ll show you the techniques you need to climb on your own, including choosing routes, using gear, or lower off routes, etc.

Our guided days are ideal for anyone with some previous top or lead climbing, gym or rock climbing experience.
We keep the instructor/participant ratio low (about 1:2 to 1:4) to ensure maximum attention to the participant, more flexibility in the session and more fun

The sessions are suitable for children over 12 years and are available for a group with a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 8 elements.
