Our long weekend breaks offer a similar format to our week long holidays but give you the best chance to fit in as much climbing as possible in a 4 day period. Usually running from Thursday – Sunday with carefully planned travel you can be on the rock within a few hours of arriving in Spain.
Like the week long holidays the daily schedule revolves around making the most of daylight hours for getting outdoors and on to the crags. You will be taken to the climbing sector each day after breakfast, with packed lunch provided to keep you energised through the day. We will help you to become familiar with the sectors and identify the best and most suitable routes. After a day on superb rock you will enjoy an evening with good local food and wine in the alberg or refugi. We will have a chance to talk through the day's climbing and pore over topos while planning the next day's campaign.
Weekend breaks run from both our designated centre the Abella de la Conca Eco-Refugi which is brilliantly situated to access a huge range of areas and climbing styles and alberg/private house accommodation in the heart of the spectacular Montserrat massif. The Eco-Refugi has a mix of dormitory and twin room accommodation. Accommodation in Montserrat ranges from traditional mountain refuge bunkhouses or more individualized albergs. Transport is in minivan and/or four wheel drive depending on the terrain.
Once in Spain the prices are all inclusive. All prices include pick-up and drop-off at Barcelona train station or El Prat airport, accommodation and full-board meals with wine, transport to and from the climbing sector of choice each day and expert route advice. Costs not included in the package are for travel to/from Spain, additional drinks/meals outside of your accommodation base and travel/climbing insurance.
