Climb Catalunya

For over ten years The Castle has organised climbing holidays in Northern Spain with Climb Catalunya.  Whether you are a novice or a very experienced climber, these holidays are great value.  Knowledgeable local guides and group leaders will take you to the best crags and give you specific route recommendations so that you get as much climbing in as possible. Catalunya is graced with excellent weather and a wide variety of crags from adventurous multi-pitch, hard-core tufa-filled caves and friendly single-pitch venues all in the midst of stunning scenery.

The trips include transport (once in Spain), accommodation and food so all you need to worry about is the climbing. Your trip will be led by a Castle liaison who will help you with pre-trip logistics and make sure you have the best trip possible.

With the exception of the High Pyrenees trip the holidays are based from the Abella de la Conca Eco-Refugi, a 200 year old ecologically renovated refuge in a beautiful mountain village about an hours drive from Lleida. This central location allows for easy access to a number of crags.  It is an inspiring location and your body and soul will be nourished by the landscape surrounding you.
