• Overview




Bouldering is extremely popular. It is fun, it keeps you fit, it is challenging, and above all, it is super convenient! As opposed to rope climbing, you can go to the bouldering gym on your own, plus, all you need is a pair of climbing shoes and some chalk!

Would you like to try this on real rock? Our instructors will take you to the best bouldering locations, teach you how to boulder safely outdoors, and how to climb on real rock instead of plastic.



The focus of the Bouldering Holiday


Rock & Sun offers Bouldering Holidays of 3 nights up to 7 nights, in Europe's two most popular Bouldering areas: Fontainebleau in France and Albarracin in Spain.


Our dedicated instructors are the best in the business and will make sure that your guiding is not only first class, but that your choice of venues are perfect for the bouldering grade you are currently at.


If you want to, your guide will work with you on personal development, including tips on climbing techniques, how to deal with fear, or how to safely jump off boulders. We will do our best to provide the perfect environment for you to increase confidence and improve technique, to help take your bouldering to a new level in a fun and sociable environment.


Our Bouldering Holidays include accommodation, transfers, and transport to/from the crags. For your Bouldering Trip in Albarracin, your instructor will pick you up at Valencia Airport, so all you need to do is book a flight. To get to Fontainebleau, you fly into Paris and then take the train to Fontainebleau, where you will be picked up by your instructor and taken to your accommodation.



Bouldering Locations


Both Bouldering locations that we use are perfect for all levels, and are very pretty too. You will have a great time bouldering as well as wandering in the forest and in town afterwards. Recipe for a great holiday! If you would like to extend your holiday, we recommend to add a city trip in Paris (near Fontainebleau) or Valencia (near Albarracin).
