Dalmatia region in Croatia is a dreamland for both climbers and sailors. Seventy-nine islands (and infinite number of islets) run parallel to the coast, among which Brač, Pag, and Hvar are the largest. It is a limestone lover’s paradise. There is everything from bouldering, short well-bolted sport routes, super long sport and traditional routes, to deep water soloing - almost every one of the 1000+ islands has vertical or overhanging cliffs on its south side! What better way to discover the area than sailing across all these islands?
A certified mountain guide who is also a skipper and has been sailing these seas and climbed these cliffs for more than a decade, the beautiful sailing boat “Macrì”, hundreds of hidden spots for climbing and deep water solo and the crystal clear sea of Dalmatia. It is an expedition, not a 5* holiday: get ready to help out in the sailing manoeuvres and climb in really off-the-beaten-track crags!
The sailing and climbing expedition is conceived for climbers that want to explore and climb in pristine areas and leave the sailor life. Dalmatia area has crags for every level, from 5th to 9a. No minimum level is required, since Icio is a full certified mountain guide. What is needed is an adventurous attitude and thirst for exploration!
Mapo Tapo selects crags and local partners with the utmost care. We can for any inaccuracies, however, accept no liability. Rock climbing is a risk sport that takes place in nature. Ultimately, you are fully responsible for the choices you make. Mapo Tapo recommends that anyone who does not have sufficient knowledge not to go outdoor alone
The program is very flexible to take into account weather conditions, climbing level -and endurance of the group
