Croatia, Slovenia, Albania, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Serbia, Monte Negro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, and Greece, what do they have in common? It is all part of the Balkan peninsula. The word Balkan comes from Turkis and it means Mountains and you can believe us, this mountain has a great rock to climb. Now it is pretty clear why we are heading this way, right?


Apart from great culture, food, drinks, and welcome local people, Balkan offers amazing known crags such as Paklenica in Croatia or Osp in Slovenia. There are also tons of unknown rock climbing spots and it is about time to go and punish it. Klemen Becan with his great knowledge of local situations and conditions is gonna guide us through one of the coolest parts of Europe in terms of nature, culture, and of course ROCK!


Using Adria and SunLiving camper vans as transportation and accommodation units gives us great freedom, flexibility, and comfort. There is La Sportiva and Singing Rock DEMO option every day. Looks like we are set to ROCK ‘N’ ROLL!

For the Rockbusters team climbing is not just a sport, it’s what we eat, drink, breathe and sleep - it’s what we live for. Our Sport Climbing Courses and Climbing Road Trips give you the opportunity to get a taste of what we mean and become part of our climbing crew.

 

The main focus of our Sport Climbing Courses and Road Trips is to provide great quality climbing, so it’s aimed at climbers with some experience. We are not pushing fit and motivated beginners away though. Rockbusters guides and coaches will provide all necessary coaching and go through all safety and technical details so everyone is able to do as much climbing as possible and enjoy climbing with each other. We make sure to push you enough so you achieve more during your stay, arming you with all the necessary techniques and safety measures before you try anything new.

 

During the time you will spend with us we will turn you into a confident leader of any sport climbing route and make you a better climber overall no matter your current grade or level. Our professional guides and coaches will show you all the sport climbing tricks you may use to stay safe and to be happy trying routes beyond your comfort zone.

 

As well as building confidence, strength and taking on some tough climbs, this is a Rockbusters course, so you can also expect a hefty dose of fun! We love what we do and that really comes across in all of our trips and programs. And… we like to party almost as much as we like to climb, so get ready to have a blast on and off the rock. The informal, fun atmosphere of our courses is famous, but we never let this distract us from your climbing progression.

 

Minimum of 3 participants. In other cases, we will offer different trips/courses in the same or higher value or issue a full refund.
