Mar, Apr, Nov, Dec
Arrival to our Vila located close to Lagos, where you’ll check in your room and enjoy the facilities. We’ll pick you up from the bus station or train station if you’d like, or arrange an airport pick-up (contact us for the rates). We’ll then gather the team, share a home-cooked dinner and discuss the plan for the next few days. We can get to know each other better and then plant the seeds for an epic week.
You’ll start the day with breakfast. We’ll then head to our introductory site of Bensafrim to spend a half-day climbing and getting acquainted with the local rock. We’ll head back to the Vila at lunchtime, so you can enjoy a hot shower and free-time for the rest of the day.
We are on for a full-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 picnic lunch and keep climbing away! After another full day of learning and sharing, we’ll return to the head-quarters for showers and relaxation.
This will be a very needed resting day. You can sleep, explore and enjoy some down-time in the old town. 🙂 And since we like our climbers to stay healthy and happy, you’ll have an included restorative yoga class at the end of the day at the Villa.
After breakfast, we’ll jump on our super van with all the climbing gear needed and head to Sagres, in order to abseil and climb over its majestic 30-meter long sea-cliffs. We’ll then head back to Lagos at the end of the day for another relaxing afternoon.
The last and a very exciting day! After the morning breakfast, 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! We will be definitely celebrating the amazing feats this night over dinner, sharing stories, and, if the energy levels permit, go down-town for a stroll. 🙂
Wake up slowly when you wish and enjoy the last breakfast. Let us know if we can help you get somewhere if you need a ride, information, free hugs or more fun!

Private Vila in shared double room
Supplement of 190 euros for a private room
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
