Climbing Holidays

Climbing in the Algarve is little known... although it offers some amazing climbing. The limestone is a superb quality. Whether you are climbing on the sea cliffs or inland on one of the massive's, it is all excellent rock. Grades vary from easy 3+ up to 8. For the summer there is world class deep water soloing.
Join us on a climbing holiday or join a climbing course: top rope, belay, lead, deep water soloing.
 Autumn, spring and winter  are perfect times for climbing.. .summer can get a little hot but the surf is great.

Portugal and especially Aqua-Ventura is a very addictive place. We went on great bike rides, we found amazing DWS spots (deep-water-soloing) and tried surfing for the first time. <3 :-) The coastline is so wild and beautiful and Aqua-Ventura is the perfect spot for adventure and excitement but you will also find a beautiful, peaceful place with fantastic people and extraordinary, exquisite food. Thank you very much for a lovely holiday we will never forget.

When we booked our one week climbing holiday at Aqua-Ventura we had no idea what to expect. But even our biggest expectations would have been outreached by what we found at this wonderful place...beautiful nature, lovely accommodation, gorgeous food, great climbing but most of all friendly, kind-hearted, amazing people who made this week an unforgettable and inspiring experience we will never forget. Thank you John & Vio!!
