Rock Climbing

Whether you’re a first-time climber looking for a lesson and a complete climbing experience, or a seasoned mountaineer looking for exciting new climbs and adventure - all our resorts offer excellent facilities.

Climbing with an instructor as part of a sociable group is a lot of fun, and we don’t think there is any better introduction to this sport than on natural rock faces, in stunning and wild locations. You’ll be taught belaying and abseiling techniques during the excursion and start with easy climbs before progressing onto more difficult routes.

A Fantastic Mountain Experience

Climbing is a strangely addictive sport and promotes excellent physical fitness. As a satisfying half-day excursion, it’s great fun to do with family and gives a very rounded and ‘real mountain’ experience.

Run by a specialist climbing school, your instructor and guide will transport you the short distance to the location or start point. We like to run the activity with other Alpine Elements guests which make for sociable groups of 8 to 12 people.

Climbing for Families and children

Kids age 8+ (and adults) can learn to climb on the real McCoy and climbing natural rock face is a great experience. For children under 8 and as young as 5, they can take their first steps into the world of climbing using artificial climbing walls, available in all resorts. They have soft mats and easy traverses which are free to use, or very low cost.

More on Family Activities

The low down

Climbing on natural rock face is a great experience and under the supervision of your instructor, it’s very rewarding too. You will learn about lots of techniques, rope work and belaying. Our instructors are very patient, inspirational and energetic - with a true love of their sport. As a rounded experience of the mountains, this one is hard to beat.

Climbing Walls

Climbing Walls are a fantastic place to start climbing or to develop your skills. All resorts have an excellent selection of artificial walls with features specifically designed for all levels from outright beginners to the most extreme solo climbers and provide a fun and safe environment to try climbing. 

Families and beginners find artificial walls a great place to get a taste of the real thing, and completing a route or traverse is very satisfying and quite addictive. Walls have colour coded hand and foot holds for each level, which allows beginners to climb many of the same walls as the experts, following easier routes.
