    Sail and rock climb in Trieste Gulf

    Season 2022: Every week from May to November

    Why Trieste Gulf?

    Trieste is the perfect playground for sailing and rock climbing. Located at the top of the Adriatic Sea, all its coast is surrounded by limestone, high cliffs and the Carso-Karst hills. It offers wonderful climbing in all grades of difficulty, and is often sunny and windy starting from the Spring. Trieste as a sailing spot, is famous for the the Barcolana, one of the most crowded regattas in the world and for its northern to north-eastern katabatic  wind, called Bora. There are beautiful small bays and harbors all along the coast of the Trieste Gulf, where we can anchor and head to the cliffs. Some spots we may even be able to climb right in view of our boat, some other to reach, we might need to drive shortly. We will sail close to the Castle of Miramare, Duino and Muggia, all built just on the cliffs above the sea.

    General Infos

    On this trip we will aim at a fair balance between sailing, climbing, enjoy the  fresh Adriatic fish and the delicious local wine. Sailing days will be short (2 to 4 hours per day), so we can keep time for rock climbing. We will sail the boat every day to a new place, and climb on at least 5 different sites (depending on the preferences of the group, we can tip the balance towards either more sailing or more climbing). We will also keep some time ashore to discover the landscapes, villages and historical traditions of Trieste.

    Requirements and equipment

    No previous experience in either sailing or climbing is required. The skipper and the mountain guide will teach you all you need to know to sail the boat and take your first steps on the rocks. We will teach you how to put on the harness, use the gear, make the knots, belay, and we will give you advice to develop your climbing technique. Depending on your level of experience, you may also try some lead climbing or multi-pitches. There’s lots for those with climbing experience too.

    Equipment needed for the climbing days: climbing equipment (harness, climbing shoes, helmet), trekking boots or sneakers, sunglasses, 20-25 liter backpack, hat, sunscreen, one pair of gloves, water bottle, wind jacket, down jacket or similar.

    Depending on the sea and weather condition the program can be changed.

    The airport of Trieste, Venice and Lubjana have regular flights from most european cities.
