AMAZING! Our group of five locals - three adults, two 9yr old girls - had an incredible day over the Easter break thanks to the team at Wildwire. We'd always seen the stunning advert before movies at Cinema Paradiso, and we booked the trip as soon as the kids were old enough.

We loved our level 1 climb and if we’d had more time would have upgraded to the next level like most of our group did on the day. You have time to practice the skills needed before setting off and the guides are really clear in their explanations and happy to go at whatever pace

We booked for level 1 but ended up going to level 2 ( and paid the extra on the day) which was definitely worth it.
