Come visit one of the most intriguing rock climbing places in Belgium and enjoy the rare treat of a night on a portaledge! Explore the remarkable geology and countryside of Freyr on a rock climbing program that is sure to please every type of traveler!

Belgium is home to a dazzling natural landscape that includes meadows, pastures, forests, and valleys. The limestone rock of Freyr is a great sport climbing destination, with a massif overlooking the Meuse River as you make you way up one of hundred of exciting and inspired routes.

Our program will take you along the generous rock rising above the Meuse for a climb designed around your abilities and needs. There are great single-pitch and multi-pitch routes that can be explored for days, with amazing Belgian scenery as the perfect backdrop. We can combine sport routes for a sustained journey up the stone.

The best part of the program is our night on a portaledge. You can relax into the evening and watch the sun set from above the serene river. I can take care of necessary logistics, so you can relax and enjoy the rare experience that is a fulfilling component of a rock climbing career. In the morning, you will wake up to the moving water and the natural beauty of Freyr. A sunrise from this elevated Belgian limestone is sure to stay with you long after you finish the program.

One of the perks of a Freyr climb is the vantage point of the aptly named Chateau de Freyr. It stands as a huge draw for visitors to Wallonia, and memorable views from the top of the rock are a guarantee. Climbers can spot the illustrious gardens outside of the chateau, sitting right on the water of the Meuse. Any adventurers in the mood for an extended stay can visit the castle and tour the grounds before or after the program.

This is one of my favorite spots to climb. I cultivated my passion for climbing on these very rocks, so sharing this experience with you is important to me. I am a local expert who can guide you wherever you need and want to go for the best possible climbing trip. I can ensure a safe and satisfying program that will only be enhanced by our night on the portaledge.

You should have a general fitness level that makes climbing comfortable, though all are welcome to enjoy this program. There are single-pitch and multi-pitch climbs for every type of climber. A tolerance of heights is required to participate on this trip.

Rise and shine on a portaledge with the Meuse River rushing below you and BOOK this unforgettable rock climbing trip in Freyr NOW for a one-of-a-kind adventure in Belgium!

We can also include a Freyr climb with other great destinations in Wallonia on a multi-day rock climbing adventure!

My girlfriend and I climb at very different levels. We spent a half day climbing with Ivan, and he was able to give us each the instruction that we needed. Whether you are new to climbing or highly experienced, Ivan is the perfect guide to help you develop the skills needed to climb the rocks at Fontainebleau and learn how to navigate around the circuits and the forest.

We had a fantastic experience climbing with 10 friends, all unexperienced but looking for a challenge. Our guides were Willy and Marie, they picked a great spot for us in Rochers du Camp Commando de Marche les Dames. We went for a full day which allowed us a perfect combination of Via Ferrata and mountain climbing. Willy kept us well-informed up front, gave useful tips and even arranged climbing shoes for all of us. Throughout the day they were very flexible to accommodate our wishes and make sure we had the best possible day. Would absolutely recommend!

Ivan was an amazing coach and climbing guide for my 12 year old daughter. He was patient, found the best boulders for her to climb, gave her some excellent climbing technique tips, and helped her mentally on how to make the most of her time at Fontainebleau. It was such a great experience for her. A huge thank you to Ivan!!!

On n'a PAS fait Pont-à-Lesse, sinon Marche-les-Dames, à côté du Camp commando près de Beez. 1 h de préparatifs, 3 h de via ferrata époustouflant. On était en partie des expérimentés, pour d'autres la 1ere fois. Il ne faut pas avoir peur. C'est impressionnant, et assez sportif. Les guides attentifs, aimables et professionnels. Inoubliable.

Really pleased with our trip. There was a slight mis-communication with the booking so we ended up needing to pay a bit more than originally told but overall a really good service. Vladimir was a great guide. Very calm and supportive. We had a fantastic time.

Tout parfait, guide, site. Mais explore share devrait éviter de changer de langue sans arrêt dans ses messages aux utilisateurs. Certain messages en anglais, puis d'autres en français, puis de nouveau en anglais. Ca change tout le temps.

We finally opt for the Grand-Malades (instead of Pont à Lesse) based on explo share advices. We really enjoyed it. The guide was really great! Thanks

We had Léo as a guide for our day climb in Fonty. We were blessed with a knowledgeable, warm and instructive guide. Communication with Léo and Ivan was smooth and swift. Thank you!

Great adventure! Sadly les Calanques we’re closed due to fire risk; however, our guide, Guillaume, found another climbing location for us (Saint-Victoire), which was beautiful and fun as well. A note to those from the states — what you climb in the gym ≠ what you climb outside. Make sure to communicate that, otherwise, be ready to be pushed!

We had an absolutely wonderful experience with Ivan. He led me and my two children on an amazing first day of outdoor bouldering. We all had some indoor bouldering experience, but this was the perfect introduction to bouldering outside. Ivan is very knowledgeable, a great teacher and very patient. We all had a great time and the trip was everything I’d hoped for and more. Merci beaucoup!

Christophe did an excellent job showing us his part of the world on horseback. It was a unique and amazing experience!

Climbing with guide Guillaume was absolutely a highlight of my 2-week Europe vacation. Originally we were planning on climbing in the Calanques, but the park was closed due to wind and fire danger. Guillaume chose another amazing location (Pic de Bretagne) based on my climbing abilities and preferences, and kindly offered train station pick-up and hotel drop off which I appreciated very much. The multi-pitch route we did was not only fun but also the right amount of challenges which I thoroughly enjoyed (I climb regularly in a gym and occasionally outdoor sport routes). The view was fantasitic as well. I also learned a lot from Guillaume about all the good climbings in Southern France (definitely coming back in the future!) The communication from the team (Gauthier) was prompt and clear - highly recommend!
