The Abella Eco-Refugi is also the home base of Climb Catalunya – a climbing guiding and holiday company that has been operating in Catalunya for more than 15 years. Run by a highly capable team of climbers and mountain guides they can offer you a professional, memorable and safe climbing experience. Climb Catalunya offers a mix of all inclusive climbing holidays and bespoke guiding and instruction courses.
These breaks allow you the opportunity to enjoy a sociable climbing holiday in some of the areas finest rock destinations. The majority of the weeks are based from the Abella Eco-Refugi and the rest take place in other mountain hostels or albergs in places such as Montserrat and the Aiguestortes National Park. These weeks offer full board catering, accommodation, transportation to the crag, help choosing the best routes and pickup and drop off from Barcelona. They are not instruction holidays (though instruction can be included as a bolt-on option) so are not suitable for complete non-climbers but are an excellent opportunity for entry level climbers looking for their first outdoor experience to experienced climbers looking for a hassle free trip with a guaranteed group of people to climb with.
