Description of Learn Spanish and rock climb in Granada, Spain

Rock climbing in and around Sierra Nevada National Park in Andalucía is an absolute pleasure with limestone landscapes and tempting crags opening up before your very eyes in addition to some of the best sport climbing sites in the whole of southern Spain.

This province of southern Spain encapsulates the area’s natural beauty and rock climbing is certainly one of the best ways to get to grips with the physical geography as well as discovering the social and cultural landscape too as you study Spanish in its country of origin – the only way to learn.

Our rock climbing programmes run all year round, thanks to the climate, and, of course, our Spanish classes do too. Why not tailor a week or more of language learning and rock climbing? Not only will you get to meet new people in a choice of accommodation but you’ll also be located in Granada with plenty of free time to explore the city of an afternoon or evening.

Our main rock climbing zone is Los Cahorros which is just a short stroll from the village of Monachil, just on the outskirts of Granada. Other recommended sites for climbing include the crags of Alfacar, Loja, Diezma, Los Vados and Malaga's El Chorro which can all be reached by car.

If you need any more information relating to our climbing, language or accommodation programmes please don’t hesitate to get in touch and we’ll be more than happy to answer all of your questions.

People

Granada Province is one of the most important regions for rock climbing in Southern Spain. Here you can find a big number of rock climbing areas. We offer guided rock climbing afternoons all year round. Our guides are from a small village situated in the Sierra Nevada Natural Park. They are a group of young people who came from the unemployment and founded the company. They will lead our students through the beautiful landscapes of this aera situated in the surrounding of Granada city. Participants will climb in areas near Alfacar village, Monachil village or Diezma village. These rural villages are located outside the main tourist aeras. Inhabitants live basically from incomings proceding from agriculture. Our participants have the possibility to rent rock climbing equipment, in the case they need to do so. Thanks to this type of programmes, we contribute to promote outdoor tourism in these villages. In the future this type of sustainable tourism can become an alternative for the locals to obtain economical incomings.
