    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 experience, and both of us made it to the top. We stayed at a campsite…

  • 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 not. In Tarifa, we met a traveling couple from The Netherlands, Peter, and Iris. They…

  • 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 for challenging our personal best, take the tourist role to new levels, and established new…

  • 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 the strongest climbers in the world sending super hard routes, like the famous La Rambla…

    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 Costa Blanca. We spent some beautiful days with climbing in Mula and went back to…

  • 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 few climbing shops or gyms to find in Malaga and El Chorro was sold out.…

  • Finale Ligure

    Climbing in Finale Ligure, Italian Riviera

    After watching the EpicTV serie, Europe’s Best Crags we wanted to try the climbing in Finale. This was also on our way to France so spending a week here was not a difficult choice to make. It turned out that Finale is one of the places we like the best so far – actually that good that we’re playing with the idea of moving here one day (inspired by a…

  • Climbing in Innsbruck – North of Tirol (2/3)

    Innsbruck is a famous climbing destination offering excellent climbing for all types of climbers. The Climbing World Championships took place in Innsbruck at the time we were in the area, so we simply couldn’t miss out. Especially because this year it would be the biggest Climbing World Championships of all times. Lead, Bouldering, Speed, and the Olympic Combined format was carried out. The whole event was really fun to follow,…
