  • Checking out the pulse of Amsterdam and climbing Excalibur

    Checking out the pulse of Amsterdam and climbing Excalibur

    We had one big goal for our visit to the Netherlands; to climb one of the worlds tallest artificial climbing walls, Excalibur in Groningen.  We had seen so many pictures of Excalibur on social media, so we had to see it live and test it. It was fun, high and windy! It was an exciting […]

  • Birthday, climbing and sightseeing in Trier

    Birthday, climbing and sightseeing in Trier

    Miriam wished for her birthday to be tourists in one of Germany’s oldest towns, Trier. She also wanted to keep her tradition of climbing on her birthday, so this was the perfect opportunity to check out the bouldering gym, Bloc Chocolate. Yes, you heard it right, bouldering and chocolate. The owners of the gym just […]

  • Climbing in Luxembourg, the fairy tale forest of Berdorf

    Climbing in Luxembourg, the fairy tale forest of Berdorf

    Again, we only planned to stay for a couple of weeks but ended up staying for a month. It was love at first sight. The climbing and hiking in Luxembourg and the area of Berdorf, or little Switzerland as it’s also called, is incredible. A must experience for everyone passing this small country – climber or […]

  • Jungle & Fairytales in Alsace

    Jungle & Fairytales in Alsace

    After bouldering for over a month, our fingers were itching for rope climbing again. As we were slowly heading back to Roka Werk in Germany for service on the mother ship, we left Fontainebleau and drove east towards Strasbourg. A friend of ours told us that Kronthal near the border to Germany has some beautiful […]

  • The bouldering paradise – Fontainebleau

    The bouldering paradise – Fontainebleau

    Isn’t it just fantastic that in one single trip you can experience the Eiffel Tower, and climb in one of the world’s most famous climbing destinations? Fontainebleau has over 30 000 bouldering problems on quality sandstone rock! And it’s only an hour by car outside of Paris. Our stay in Fontainebleau has been the month […]

  • Climbing in Siurana

    Climbing in Siurana

    Siurana is a small village in Catalonia situated on a cliff’s edge in the Tarragona mountains. The view is just spectacular, not to mention the limestone cliffs, which makes Siurana a climber’s paradise. It’s understandable that this place has been one of the world’s best climbing crags for decades. Here you can watch some of […]

  • Back in Spain – Plasencia, Bullas /Mula & Finestrat

    Back in Spain – Plasencia, Bullas /Mula & Finestrat

    Our original plan after Lisbon was to drive back to Spain and drive the whole way to Siurana, a climbing paradise a couple of hours from Barcelona. After some windy and chilly weeks in Portugal, and minus degrees during the night just outside Madrid, we decided on a little detour back to warmer areas in […]

  • Bolonia – White sand dunes & bouldering

    Bolonia – White sand dunes & bouldering

    One of the most beautiful places on earth? At least another little paradise, also in the municipality of Tarifa. Bolonia is most known for the white sandy beach with fantastic dunes, and some well kept Roman ruins. It’s also possible to drive to the top of the hill and enjoy a spectacular view of the sea and the beach. Here you can also find the big bouldering area! We didn’t know anything about the […]

  • Tarifa – A little paradise

    Tarifa – A little paradise

    During our six months of traveling in Europe, we have visited so many places with the potential to be our favorite, Tarifa is probably our winner so far. We love the beautiful and wild landscape you meet just after driving an hour from busy Marbella. And the white beaches packed with kiters, active people and […]

  • Climbing Costa del Sol – El Chorro, Mijas & Marbella

    Climbing Costa del Sol – El Chorro, Mijas & Marbella

    After spending some weeks with fantastic climbing in Costa Blanca, we were psyched to see what Costa del Sol had to offer. The only thing we knew was that El Chorro is in this region, the crag almost everyone we’ve met has talked about. Finding a guidebook for the climbing though seemed almost impossible. The […]
