If you take your camper west to the province of Cadiz, your find the remarkable natural park of Grazalema. Here the rugged mountains landscape is a climber’s dream.
Tarifa and the Atlantic coast of Andalucia is the heart of Spain’s vanlife culture. Its sea, surf…and mountains too. The San Bartolomé mountains are a favourite with climbers-in-the- know and offer the chance to climb some of the most varied routes in Southern Spain in the morning – and then chill on the pristine beaches of Tarifa in the evening!
For camping, try Campsite Valdevaqueros, opposite one of the best beaches in the area.
If you prefer the semi-arid landscape and claimed of desert Andalucia, then drive out east to Almeria.Here, the climbing is at lower heights, yet no less demanding. And what’s more you’ll be close to some of the best beaches in the Mediterranean!
For camping, try Camping Playa Aguadulce.
As an experienced climber you’ll be familiar with the equipment you need, including your own rock shoes and harness as well as ropes and karabiners for safety. You can source material locally too, such as magnesium powder to keep your hands dry. In addition, here at Flamenco Campers we can arrange for you to hire rock climbing gear too, so you can pack lighter.
