What you'll do

We will climb limestone cliffs over the Ocean in Cascais at an amazing spot with great views in a group of a maximum of 5 people .

We will meet next to the climbing spot and we will take a very short walk together (5min) to get where the sport climbing routes are and we will find the ones adapted to your level.

We will go through some basic theory for safe climbing, use of knots, materials and belaying and once we are ready we will start climbing!

In Cascais there are sport climbing routes for all skills and levels . We will adapt to your level and will make your experience SAFE, fun and unique.

In order to ensure a safe climbing experience, the rock has to be dry. In case of bad weather (rain), we will be forced to change the dates of the experience. If the participants don't have availability on the new proposed dates we will cancel the experience and give a 100% refund.

You don`t need to bring any climbing gear. We provide helmet + climbing shoes + rope + harness + quickdraws + belay device.

I am João Gama, I was born between cliffs and waves in beautiful Sintra -Cascais Natural Park and developed a love for nature and outdoor sports. I have a degree in Sports Training along with a Climbing&Mountaineering course and as well a surf instructor course. I started climbing when I was 20 years old and I climbed in Portugal, Spain, Italy, France and Switzerland. Once I realized my passion was to share my knowledge, experience and love for the natural playground where I live in and decided to founded my Outdoor Adventurer company, Cascais Routes. Me as a main instructor and manager with my team of instructors/guides have been doing climbing courses/experiences for the last 5 years. We will take you out there weather you are a beginner or a seasoned climber!

Truly once in a lifetime opportunity! I had such a great time and really appreciated the effort in making sure I had the best experience. This was my first time climbing outdoor and I couldn’t have picked a better location or guide. Highly recommend.

It’s an AWESOME experience! I’m a newbie when it comes to rock climbing but with João’s experience I wasn’t too worried. Climbing the cliffs of the Portuguese coast was definitely exhilarating!

Jao was great, pleasant, and very friendly. It was my first time doing rock climbing for me and most of my crew. He explained everything very well, he was patient and detailed with instructions. The place that he picked was beautiful and exceptional. The experience was very real being my first time, he was able to ease my nerves and got me on that rock! If you like adrenaline and outdoor sports he is your guy. I recommend to others. It was a great experience for me and my friends.
