  • My wife and I booked a top rope beginner class with Volta do Mar and we have to admit that we were greatly impressed!! The theorical part was thorough but concise, from a brief history of climbing and safety to the different gear pieces available on the market and the rehearsal of the necessary moves and habits that top roping requires. They gave us note of what the theorical part covers and tens of very useful tips. The practical part was also great: a beautiful scenary and many routes available depending on your level. The core team is really fun, relaxed, will make you feel at ease and very serious when it comes to safety. I greatly recommend Volta do Mar if you need guidance while climbing in the region! I will visit them again!!
  • My fiancée and I took a beginner top rope course and were accompanied by the most knowledgable and professional guide I could ever have expected. He has bolted the routes himself in Bensafrim and made the experience very productive. We each climbed 4-5 different routes and the difficulty progression was just right. 60 per person for a private tour with pickup and drop off, all the gear , and a solid 4 hour session was a pretty good deal. I would try the Sagres level 2 area next time.
  • We booked a wine&bike tour, as well as 2 climbing trips. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable. The climbing destinations were awesome and you can bet to have their full attention as it’s more of a private tour. They have a nice touch with bringing freshly sqweezed orange juice, cookies, and melon. We had a lot of fun!
  • Easily one of the best days we had in Portugal. Andre (the owner) was an amazing tour guide and he spoke so highly of his colleagues that I am sure you will have an incredible time with any guide that you are assigned to! His pride and knowledge for the history of the area made learning about it completely captivating. He is super smart, talks about everything under the sun in addition to teaching about Lagos and surrounding areas, and it felt like we were hanging out with an old friend all day. Plus, the lunch alone that we had on the bike tour was among the best things we did all trip just by itself. Quinta do Alem was also wonderful! We brought two bottles home to help us celebrate our one year anniversary (we went to Portugal for our honeymoon), and it will be tough to wait the year to enjoy it again. Highly recommend Volta do Mar if in Lagos.
  • Had a lot of fun rock climbing and our guide, Ricardo, was very friendly and chill! If I ever come back to Portugal I’d love to try their other tours!
