Easter climbing holiday in Finale Ligure
Sea, Sun, Crag, Pizza & Gelato!
Isn’t it a nice combination to spend this long Easter weekend? Join us for this exclusive climbing trip to Finale Ligure, one of the most famous sport climbing spots in Northern Italy with amazing climbing, great views and a lovely town for dining and visiting.
Finale Ligure, on the Gulf of Genoa, is a small coast town with just about 11’000 inhabitants. The rock climbing at Finale Ligure offers fantastic, diverse sport climbing of great quality and character, with over 4,000 routes to choose from on white limestone rock.
The rock climbing is situated in a succession of valleys in the hills behind Finale Ligure. The best times of the year to climb in Finale Ligure are in the autumn and spring.
What’s the plan?
Thursday 14 April
We meet in Zurich at 07:00 and drive to Finale Ligure. Check in at the apartment we’ll be staying in for the next 4 nights and dinner at a nice local restaurant.
Friday 15 April – Sunday 17 April
Antoine Chaboudez, our certified climbing instructor, will meet us on Friday morning. After a short introduction and briefing, we will head to a local crag and rock climb all day.
We will try different crags every day to make the most of the area.
In between of after the climbing sessions, we can always go for a swim and/or go for a gelato or a drink!

On Monday we can still enjoy the town or the beach before leaving, or decide to spend the day in Milan which is on our way back to Zurich. Return to Zurich in the evening.
