In the Alps, rock climbing and via ferrata are a way of life, making it the perfect destination for rock climbing holidays in Europe. There simply is no better activity for seeing the wonder of the mountains in a whole new light.

Climbing in the Alps is a fully-rounded experience, where visitors can enjoy ‘real’ rock-faces, beautiful surroundings, and natural locations. On a family activity holiday in the Alps, children from 8 years can typically join in climbing lessons, building confidence, and developing a love for the great outdoors!

For something a little different, visitors can also try out via ferrata holidays in the Alps and the Dolomites.
