Albarracin - Bouldering

  • Our customers say

This bouldering paradise is set in a remote and tranquil forest near the town of Albarracin, Teruel, Spain. The delightful town, with walls and towers dating from early Muslim times, a 16th century cathedral and medieval galleried houses, has rightly earned the honour of an international award for historical preservation.

 

Bouldering in Albarracin is truly special; exceptionally good and grippy rock (sandstone with quartz), accessible and interesting problems for all grades, a large variety of boulders close together, short approaches, and a bunch of keen and super-friendly climbers around. A must visit destination for anyone who loves bouldering, and hanging out in a beautiful forest and charming medieval town. 

 

Weather & Climate in Albarracin

Albarracin has the great advantage of offering year-round bouldering. At 900 metres above sea level, the air is cooler than other, much warmer, lower-climbing regions in Spain. The best time to go climbing in Albarracin is from September till May. We can run trips in June, July and August, although the weather is typically very hot during these months. We offer long weekends (3 nights) from Friday till Monday, but can also organise week long holidays on request. 

 

Albarracin Accommodation

You will be based in a self-catering apartment in Albarracin, a small historic Spanish town with a fantastic amount of history and charm. It offers a variety of bars and restaurants to suit all tastes and pockets.

You should arrange to fly into Valencia with arrival on Friday and departure on Monday. We offer one free transfer from Valencia airport to Albarracin and one free transfer from Albarracin back to the airport. To take advantage of these free transfers, and in order to minimise waiting times, please ensure that your flight arrives no later than 2.00 pm on Friday, and departs after 11.30 am on Monday. The transfer time from Valencia Airport to Albarracin is approximately 2 hours.
