  • Day 1Monday

    We’ll come and get you from your lodging and head to our introductory site of Bensafrim to spend the morning climbing and getting acquainted with the local rock. We’ll then bring you back “home” so you can recover and enjoy the rest of the day.

  • Day 2Tuesday

    This will be a big day, as we’ll head to Rocha da Pena, Algarve’s biggest and most established climbing paradise with routes for all levels! We’ll stop for a pic-nic lunch and keep climbing away! After another full day of learning and sharing we’ll return to Lagos in the end of the day.

  • Day 3Wednesday

    This will be a very needed resting day. You can sleep, explore and enjoy some down-time. If you are still full of energy we can offer some more climbing or other experiences.

  • Day 4Thursday

    This time, we’ll head to Sagres for a morning session, in order to abseil and climb over its majestic 30-meter long sea-cliffs! Dramatic views and ultimate exposure is to be expected. 🙂

  • Day 5Friday

    The last and a very exciting day! We’ll head to Sagres for a full day but stop halfway at an area we’ve been developing in secret. This will involve a hike, crazy access and long routes like no others in the region. All of these at a remote location right by the ocean!

About the Guide


Here at Volta do Mar we want to show our visitors the area we call home through the eyes of a local. We want you to discover places that we love, off the beaten path, far from the traditional and crowded tours. We want our experiences to feel like a day with friends, spontaneous and enjoyable.

Our small company is managed by 3 childhood friends that after years of traveling around the world, returned home to start a project that speaks to our hearts and minds.

Among the resident team, we count with 2 PADI Scuba Diving Instructors and 1 FFME (French Mountaineering & Climbing Federation) instructor.

André, Pedro & Ricardo
