Your Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival at Malta International Airport and transferred to accommodation. The week`s climbing programme is reviewed, any individual climbing equipment needed is noted and any specific requirements are taken account of.

Day 2: Pick up after breakfast from accommodation and taken to Ghar Lapsi-a climbing crag near the sea with over 100 rock routes. Morning session lasts 4 hours. A snack lunch will break the day at one of the local joints. A swim is also possible. The afternoon session (4 hours) will be at a different climbing crag, namely Ix-Xaqqa (64 climbing routes). This is a fascinating coastal gulley which offers exciting slab climbing. The British Royal Marines used to train here in the 50`s and 60`s and it is reputed that they actually drove motorcycles up these steep slabs! Return to accommodation.

Day 3: Free day to do whatever one pleases. One can swim from a good choice of rocky or sandy beaches in clear blue waters, visit cultural/historical places of interest ranging from neolithic times through the Knights of St John up to WW2, shop from Malta`s numerous malls or simply enjoy typical Maltese hospitality.

Following the 4 hour morning session, a visit to Wied-Iz-Zurrieq, a picturesque fishing village. Here, a snack lunch, swim, sea traverse and a short boat trip will take one to the beautiful Blue Grotto. After lunch taken to Hamrija Tower Sea Slabs. Very close by is the oldest still standing man made structure in the world - Hagar Qim Neolithic Temples. A visit to these prehistoric temples is a must! The afternoon session (4 hours) will be capped by a sun setting over the sea at the fabulous Hamrija Tower Sea Slabs (52 climbing routes). Return to accommodation.
