Climbing on the cliffs
BUCKET LIST LOCATIONS
We’ll explore rock climbing spots around Lagos, Sagres, and Rocha da Pena, which offer some of the best climbing routes in Europe. We work with highly experienced instructors to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience; they’ve been climbing these routes for years and have many secret climbs you won’t find in any books!
The difference between the Private Rock Climb Trip to a regular Rock Climb Lesson is, that you can book Rick Climb Trip for one or for two people.
This option is especially interesting for people climbing in higher grades (6b+ and more) or those who would like to learn lead climbing, but also for people who think that they would like that extra bit of attention and help we can offer in a 1:1 or 1:2 instructor to climber ratio. In the Private Rock Climb Trip all equipment is included. Half day and full day lesson are available.
We honestly think climbing in the Algarve is something special and actually that it is why we, ASA Algarve Sea Adventures, are located here. When we discovered all of these stunning climbing routes by ourselves, we realised that this is climbing in a completely different atmosphere.
Here climbing does not take place in the mountains or in the woods somewhere inland, but right by the ocean – with sea view, on rocks by the beach (so have a swim in between your routes) and on the stunning cliffs around Europe’s most western point Sagres. Actually in the nature parc ‘Parque Natural do Sudoeste Alentejano e Costa Vicentina’ (PNSACV), a great number of the climbing routes are situated at the cliffs, so imagine nice moves over the azure blue ocean accentuated by the sound of waves and refreshing gust. So this is definitely one of the most amazing climbing areas in Portugal and southern Europe.
And the best: The limestone formations in the Algarve can be climbed all year round, according to the actual INCF (Instituto da Conservação da Natureza e Florestas) regulations.
