Activity Level

A rock-climbing adventure exploring the rock faces in and around Malta, at the heart of a Mediterranean archipelago that’s world-famous for its stunning landscapes, clear blue oceans and scorching summer sun. Take your pick of a wide variety of climbing routes in four locations across the island - and chill out in the evenings in a villa by the seaside.

After flying in via Malta International Airport, you’ll transfer by pre-arranged taxi to your accommodation near St. Julian’s - a spacious 3 storey villa complete with private freshwater swimming pool, garden and terrace, appropriately called “Basecamp”. This will be your home for the rest of your Malta adventure. The rest of the day is for meeting fellow climbers and, if time allows, a trip into the nearby Paceville district to enjoy the best of Maltese nightlife.

Arrival & Night: Accommodation in St. Julian’s.

Depending on availability, conditions and your personal preference, you’ll have four days of rock climbing (with roughly 6 hours of climbing time per day) spread over the following four regions:

Region 1: Zurrieq

Your climbing destination is the historic town of Zurrieq, located near the famous Blue Grotto sea caverns. This entire valley is one of the best places to climb in Malta, both in terms of grade of climb and sheer variety. With the help of your expert guides, you’ll have the chance to tackle easy and hard slabs, challenging bulges, power routes and even a Yosemite-style rock crack. Because there are routes on both sides of the valley, you can choose to keep in the shade if the sun is fierce.

Region 2: The Victoria Lines

The Victoria Lines, also known as the Great Wall Of Malta, is a 12-kilometer stretch of fortifications running across the north of the island. Built by the British army in the 19th Century, it follows a natural geological formation that contains a number of impressive crags. You’ll head to the outskirts of Mosta, to an area nicknamed the Valley Of Honey (for the most obvious reason) and you’ll have your pick of many climbing routes around 13 separate crags, as well as a chance to explore Mosta Fort, with its subterranean tunnels (and some excellent climbs near it). Again, you’ll be able to choose your climbs according to how much direct sun or shade you’d prefer to enjoy.

Region 3: Gozo

You’ll transfer by ferry to Malta’s sister island, Gozo. This sun-kissed Mediterranean island features sleep fishing villages, azure seas and some of the best single pitch, middle and hard grade climbing in Malta, along both sides of a gorge-like valley. You’ll have the chance to explore your picturesque surroundings, including derelict buildings and an old aqueduct that bisects the valley - and the rest of the time, you’ll be climbing grey-white rock in the hot sunshine. Later in the day, if time allows, you’ll relax at Mgarr ix-Xini Bay, a quiet cove beloved by scuba divers.

Region 4: Climbing By The Sea

Your guide will collect you and take you to one of Malta’s great landmarks - a sweeping arc of cliffs set 400 metres above the sea, above a small fishing enclave and bathing area. These cliffs are covered with excellent climbing routes, some suitable for beginners and others offering some of this whole adventure’s most challenging climbs. Since the cliffs face south, you’ll be able to spend the whole day in the sun - and in the unlikely event of rain, there are dry climbing options inside some of the caves. If you want to unwind a little earlier than planned, there’ll be a chance to head down to the beach and enjoy an afternoon’s swimming.

It’s time to return home, so you’ll say goodbye to St. Julian’s and be transferred to the airport when you’re ready. But if there’s time, you’ll be given the chance to squeeze in a few hours of last-minute sightseeing with our help. Otherwise, it’s farewell - and see you next time!

  • Six days exploring the natural wonders of the Mediterranean island of Malta, including four full days of rock climbing on a variety of routes suitable for beginner and veteran climbers, led by experienced local guides.
  • Explore soaring rock faces, sea cliffs, caves and valleys in prime locations all over the island (and on Malta’s sister-island, Gozo).
  • Base yourself in the popular seaside town of St Julian’s, in a deliciously relaxing 3-storey villa - the perfect place to crash every night after a challenging day stretching your muscles to their limits on the rock face.
  • At every point, enjoy the wisdom and care of expert climbers and Maltese guides that know how to get the best out of your time on this island paradise (and who supply all necessary training, RC insurance and assistance, along with all necessary transfers to and from the airport and road connections across the island).
