This is going to be more than just a week of top roping, this is a comprehensive yet exhilarating 5-day adult (20-50 years) course. Our goal is that you become a self-sufficient climber. Each day, our highly qualified, experienced and contagiously enthusiastic guide will provide you with top of the range equipment and take you to the best climbing and boulder spots in the area, in the mountains or by the sea. Depending on the weather and local temperatures we will always try to climb or boulder at the most suitable times and places.

Our guides know this area like the back of their hands, they literally know every stone and crack in Sintra and Cascais, and will share with you the accompanying history and insight into local flora and fauna. Kids are also welcome to join the climbing sessions or can be entertained at home or at the beach with one of our helpers. Each climbing session is taught in a fun, no pressure manner and goes hand in hand with daily theory lessons that cover climbing safety, spotting for bouldering, communication & belaying, climbing & rope technique, climbing vocabulary, equipment design and leading.

At SaltyWay we believe knowledge gives you security and security allows you to have fun!” So whatever your level we will provide the practical and theoretical know how in order to take you to the next level. We climb in small groups of 4 so as to keep the teaching personal, the vibe intimate and not overcrowd the climbing spots. If you are eager for more and wish to climb during your free time, then we drive with the group to a bouldering sectors near by. Because of safety reason we don’t rent ropes or climbing equipment other than a crash path.

We also offer two yoga sessions a week to compliment your climbing. The yoga will not only improve your balance but it will offer a welcomed relief to sore muscles and a chance to refocus and settle your mind after the adrenaline of each day. It’s all about having fun at Saltyway. Don’t worry if you’re a complete beginner there’s something for you. We will always choose spots to suit your level and comfort zone, we’ve got your back whatever your ability, and that’s a promise!

The house is beautifully situated off the beaten track, right in the heart of nature in Colares near Lisbon. We enjoy the tranquility of the Serra 24/7, a silent nights’ sleep and early surf wake ups with the birds. We light up a fire in the living room at night and enjoy the cosy atmosphere of this big room with the big windows. The kitchen offer all you need to make a good meal. We enjoy lots of nights in the big Garden with a bonfire going and the tales of the day. What’s more, we are just a short walk (12 minutes) and a breathtaking descent down to Praia Grande, via a set of steps famed for its prehistoric dinosaur footprints. The house is also situated between Almocageme and Praia das Maças. Both are small picturesque Portuguese villages with a range of restaurants, bars, small shops and cheap local markets (a great place to buy your week’s supply of fresh fruit and vegetables).

After having spent two weeks as a guest at SaltyWay last year, I came back as a volunteer for three months this year. :) SaltyWay quickly became my new home. Julika is not only a great surf instructor with lots of both theoretical and practical knowledge, she also always makes sure her guests and volunteers are feeling good and have everything they need. SaltyWay is a place where one can completely relax within beautiful surroundings. I would come back any time. Thank you Julika and see you soon :)
