1/2 Day

All year


I have the pleasure to invite you to a Via Ferrata trip, especially designed for beginners.

This trip consists is an initiation course which will take place in Castillo de Locubin. It is a Spanish locality of the province of Jaén (Andalusia).

The initiation of via ferrata is an activity with low-intermediate technical difficulty. That means that you won’t need prior experience. The itineraries in Castillo de Locubin do not have excessively vertical sections. However, I can promise it will be a fun and unforgettable adventure.

With its 125 meters of altitude and its two Tibetean bridges you’ll feel
that sensation of adrenaline that any via ferrata should have. As regards the duration of this course, it will take us about 3 hours in total.

In order to enjoy this experience to the fullest, remember to bring comfortable clothes and shoes. I always recommend hiking boots or sneakers.

Dates are on request. So, contact me and tell when you’re planning to come to Castillo de Locubin! I can guide a group from 3 people up to 9. Moreover, if you are more than 9 I can offer you a special price.

What are you waiting for? Get in touch with me and let yourself venture into the world of via ferrata!

Mountain Guide

I'm a lover of adventure sports, with 23 years of experience in almost all its modalities. My passion is climbing, although my profession is more focused on another of my passions: the canyoning. I'm ICOpro Instructor (the only one in Spain), which allows me to join my two passions, sport and teaching.
I have climbed and done canyoning in many countries of the world like Indonesia, Morocco, Argentina, France, Switzerland and India. And what my travels have truly taught me is that what really matters is the people and what they can teach me. I learn from each of the people I lead and I love that.

What people are saying about Rafael


Excellente journée avec nos deux hôtes. Les paysages sont époustouflants et les guides ont rendu l’activité accessible et amusante. Merci!


Es hat wirklich viel Spaß gemacht! Und auch wenn ich etwas ängstlich bin, habe ich mich immer sicher und in guten Händen gefühlt. Die Sprünge sind wirklich nicht verpflichtend, aber die Gruppe ("La Familia") hat mir Mut gemacht und ich habe mir alles zugetraut :) Man kann auch immer erst einmal schauen, wie es die anderen machen ;) Die Guides geben einem stets die Möglichkeit, einen anderen Weg zu gehen. Das war jedoch nicht nötig. Wichtig: Unbedingt die Packliste ansehen! Schuhe für's Wasser sind verpflichtend und Wechselschuhe für danach sind wirklich gut. Wenn der Van geparkt hat, geht's in Badesachen etwa 45min bergauf bevor man die Wetsuits anzieht und das Canyoning startet. Good to know: Die Guides haben eine wasserfeste GoPro dabei, um Fotos von der Tour und der Gruppe in Action zu machen ;)



Booked half day Via Ferrata - it turned out to be 1.5 hours via Ferrata and 1.5 hours travelling. Was disappointed with the amount of time actually doing the activity



More information required from Rafa before the trip - we did not know that we would have to drive for 30 mins off-road to get to the start point. We were in a hire car and I was very concerned about damaging the car. We also had 21 people in our group - this is far too many. The trip took about 7 hours because we moved so slowly with so many people.



Rafa, is a terrific guide. My family had a fantastic time on the via feratta route he took us on in Archidona. I found Rafa to be professional, friendly, client-centered and safe. You will have to initiate the majority of the contact, but the experience is likely to be the highlight of your trip to southern Spain. I plan on recontacting Rafa when we are next in the area. He provides all the needed equipment.
