Once we reach the final stage of the ascent, we'll encounter a 70-foot cliff face (Carrasqueira) that we will climb with the help of our instructor and the proper safety equipment. Don't worry if you've never rock climbed before, our experienced instructor will safely guide you every step of the way.

At the top, enjoy stunning views for an hour before abseiling back down and trekking back (2h30 approx.) to the starting point. The tour concludes at your hotel around 4 pm (for "Pick up and Drop off" option). We're excited to share this adventure with you!
