About rock climbing

Croatia is perfect for many reasons and rock climbing is one of them. With many rocky mountains and good places for rock climbing, it’s possible to spend your whole vacation in Croatia just doing this activity. Paklenica national park is definitely the most famous spot for rock climbing in Croatia and once you visit that place (or Google it) you get to know why it is so. Some other places include climbing areas in Istria and Dalmatia.

We’ll focus on Dalmatia since we do our tours there. Omiš and Biokovo mountain have the best climbing spots in Dalmatia. The place where we climb with our guests is situated in a small place called Gradac. It is situated on Makarska Riviera and it has a nice small climbing area which will grow in the future. We need to mention that this rock climbing spot is mostly for beginners and people who never tried rock climbing before. If you are an intermediate or advanced rock climber maybe you should search for some other places to climb like Brela, Omiš, or Paklenica.

Rock climbing as an activity is often regarded as an unsafe one but it’s far from the truth. If you follow all of the safety protocols, use only certified gear, you shouldn’t have any problems. People who never tried rock climbing before usually don’t know the safety standards of the industry and how much force can rock climbing equipment withstand. We assure you, it can withstand a lot. Equipment is nothing to worry about while rock climbing. Once you get to trust it, you’ll be free of fall and think only about climbing the route you’re in.
Another fear we usually witness through our climbing tours is the fear of heights. Completely normal phenomenon. Everybody was scared first time climbing a route. But with the knowledge about the equipment that fear starts to shrink. With every route climbed fear of heights becomes smaller and smaller until you are no longer afraid.

So if you always wanted to put some adrenaline in your vacation then you should try our rock climbing tour and find out why they say it is one of the best outdoor activities for both body and mind. You will be climbing short sport routes in the Gradac climbing area with a certified instructor. Most of the routes are easy and perfect for introduction in a world of rock climbing so this tour is perfect for beginners and persons who never climbed before. Who knows, maybe you will fall in love with this activity and one day climb some of the world’s hardest routes. During the tour, we’ll learn some of the most used climbing knots as well. Dalmatia is the perfect spot to try rock climbing in Croatia so join us and let’s climb together.
