More options

2 days Climbing Trip – 3 days Climbing Trip

For beginners or advanced climbers there is always the option for a 2-day or a 3- day course. Depending on the level of each climber we work on how to build your climbing confidence, to trust the gear, to improve your climbing skills, to introduce you to lead climbing, to lead belaying in a safe environment, to choose and use your equipment, to analyze and understand outdoor climbing risks. 

One day climbing - One day via ferrata

This is the best combination if you want to experience both activities. In that case we recommend first the climbing day in order to ensure that participants have the ability to join the via ferrata challenge.
