What people are saying about Rock Climbing |



Picus was an excellent guide and the trip was incredible! Highly recommend.



We were rained out, so I can't honestly review my experience with Penon de Ifach. It will have to wait until another time. However, weather is beyond Jorge's control and he went out of his way to make sure I was informed the entire time on the possibility of needing to cancel well before my trip. In addition, he handled all previous logistics excellently and provided that nature did not intervene I have no doubt this would have been a phenomenal experience. Jorge also made sure that my deposit was refunded with expediency shortly after cancellation. I would recommend using this service to seek adventure in the beauty of Spain, as they clearly use highly trained and professional individuals to make sure that your safety is of main priority.



We have used local guides many times for our past trips, for alpine climbing, backpacking, even for touristy activities, but the 4 days we spent with Rafa rock climbing in Costa Blanca was one of the best trips ever! Rafa customized our itinerary to fit our interest and skill levels and expertly pulled each day together. He is excellent at what he does and knows the area so well that tweaking things as we went was no trouble at all. But best of all, Rafa is a fantastic guy to just hang out with. He is smart, funny, and very caring person who genuinely wants to see his clients enjoy their time in Valencia Community. And he speaks English well, so it made our lives easier. I can't wait to come back to Costa Blanca and climb again, and when I do, I'll be absolutely reaching out to Rafa to guide us again!!



Great day out. Our guide Sergi was very knowledgeable and patient, and the whole day was a fantastic trip overall.



I had great time climbing with Alfredo! He found amazing locations and routes & was super helpful and flexible - picking me up from the airport and dropping off at the hotel. I can highly recommend him and the climbing near Alicante - there is enough climbing in the area for a lifetime.
