Spain·August - September
Meet Lorenzo, 8C boulderer and Nai, Yoga teacher in a sandstone paradise and follow along for 5 days of bouldering and yoga practices.VIEW DATES
Albarracín, also known as the "Spanish Fontainebleau", is a sandstone bouldering paradise. With over 1600 boulders of all grades concentrated in a peaceful pine forest, it's the ideal place for anyone looking to climb A LOT without having to travel very far. We’ve planned this bouldering and yoga trip to give everyone the chance to experience an exhilarating way of connecting with nature: hiking through the forest, breathing fresh air, touching the rocks and having fun in a small group. You will spend the trip immersed in beautiful landscapes, discovering the sport of bouldering through climbing workshops and quieting your mind with daily yoga sessions specifically designed for improving your climbing. The programme is very flexible to allow you to make the most of your time here, but we'll come together every morning for breakfast and a climb. A 20% early-bird discount will be applied to the first 3 bookings.
Meet our local partners in Albarracín.
Lorenzo is a passionate climber who has sport climbed 9a and bouldered 8c. He sees climbing as more than just a sport: ‘a school of life’ that allows you to explore the world, to learn and to grow.
Nairi is an Odaka yoga and Ashtanga Vinyasa instructor, who lives and shares the practice of yoga on and off the mat. She is passionate about bringing yoga to climbers as a means of learning to stay calm and composed on the rock.
5 days bouldering and relaxing in beautiful Albarracín.
Land in Valencia, pick up the car we’ve booked for you and drive to Albarracin (around 2h). Lorenzo and Nairi will welcome you at the Sandstone Guesthouse, and bring you for a walk through the woods to explore the area, feel the vibes and get to know the group. A nice welcome dinner will be waiting for you in the evening!
We hope you slept well, because it’s time to climb! After a delicious homemade breakfast, we’ll set out around 9.30 for a morning exploring the awesome boulders of Albarracín. After this, we’ll head back for lunch and a siesta, before some afternoon activities. You can choose between a yoga and mobility practice, another climbing session, or just spend the afternoon going for a relaxing walk to one of the beautiful nearby villages. All afternoon activities are optional :)
As per the previous day, wake up, have breakfast, then it’s off for a climb! The afternoon is free for you to do as you please - more climbing, yoga, exploring, or a nice regenerative nap :)
By now you should know the drill - climbing in the morning, free afternoons. If anyone is keen, Lorenzo can organise a short workshop to answer any questions you have about climbing techniques, tips and tricks.
Enjoy a final breakfast together and pack your bags. Depending on your flight schedule, you can either stay in Albarracín for the day (another climbing sesh, anyone?), head to the airport, or go visit some of the cool nearby villages around such as La Vega or Teruel.
The program is very flexible to take into account weather conditions, climbing level, and endurance of the group
Albarracín is the most famous bouldering area in Spain, and one of the best places for bouldering in Europe. Many climbers from all over the world come every year to climb the sandstone boulders and relax in the endless pine forest. Considered one of the most beautiful villages in Spain, with over 1600 problems (and counting!) Albarracín is definitely a paradise for any bouldering fanatic, which explains why some people decide to stay there for weeks or even months! The main climbing style is slopers and technical mantels, although you will not miss crimps - the especially grippy sandstone can be a real help ;) For any culture enthusiasts, the beautiful village of La Vega, home to the wonderful Albarracín Cathedral, is just a 15 minute walk away.
You’ll be staying in the Sandstone Guesthouse, a private house for the group located in peaceful natural surroundings just a 10 minute drive from the boulders.
The house boasts a shared kitchen, living room, beautiful garden, and private or shared rooms for 1 to 3 people.
It’s the perfect place to spend some time away from the hustle and bustle of normal life, climbing, meditating and enjoying time in nature.
Relax, climb hard, and enjoy your stay!
