Rock climbing

A unique and thrilling way to get close to our spectacular coastal landscape! This tour is suggested to people with rock climbing experience as well as to those who want to try this amazing sport for the first time.

You will be accompanied by a professional, authorized, English speaking alpine guide to ensure your safety. You will explore one of the several itineraries of this incredible climbing spot: vertical rocks high above the sea, between the Cinque Terre and Portovenere.

Meeting with your mountain guide at La Spezia Centrale railway station. You will reach Portovenere together, then hike for about 45 minutes to the climbing location, at about 300 meters above sea level. After a short briefing you can enjoy climbing at one of the most scenic spots of the Mediterranean. All technical gear is provided by your guide.

Hi! I wanted to thank you for doing all the work chasing down a guide to take me rock climbing on Saturday. I had a fabulous time with Franco (who also co-owns the local indoor rock climbing gym in Pisa). I joined a group from the climbing gym that was learning to climb outdoors. It was a great experience. So thank you again.
Hi Tamara! The rock climbing guide was amazing, very informative about the area we climbed in and super helpful when it came to technique. I've been climbing for a while but he was able to give me pointers on how to improve which really made for an eventful day. Would have been nicer if he had a larger selection of helmets since I have a slightly larger head than most people and it was difficult wearing the helmet he had with him because it was slightly too small. Would have also been nicer if we had a photographer to capture the moments while climbing but I still have the memories which is still great.
