The Val Trebbia area is one of the lesser known destinations in northern Italy. Unspoilt by excessive tourism it is one of the most enchanting areas in Italy where its not uncommon to feel as though time is standing still. Like something out of a storybook, the River Trebbia twists through the bases of the lush green hills which make up the valley. The turquoise water of the river tempts people, hot from the afternoon sun, to take a refreshing plunge.
The Valley offers exciting bouldering opportunities while being in the presence of breath taking scenery. Val Trebbia hosts boulders for people of all levels offering something for everyone to try out.

The participation fee is £299 and we offer two payment options:

Day 1: Welcome to Italy! Shortly after arriving at the airport you will be picked up by our transport and driven to the accommodation, close to the bouldering site. Once there, we’ll do an initial briefing to go over the plan and aims of the weekend. Day 2: Rise and shine — the first day of bouldering is about to begin (about 8 hours). We’ll drive you out to the boulders, making a quick stop at a local grocery store to buy packed lunch. Upon arrival at the activity site, the No Boundaries Team will guide you around the area. At the end of the day you’ll be driven back to the accommodation for an evening of hearty food and swapping stories — everything you need to get ready for another day of crushing problems! Day 3: Another day of amazing bouldering (about 6 hours). As on Day 2, we'll buy packed lunch on the way. You'll head over to the boulders to try new challenges and sort out any unfinished business with the rocks! At the end of the second day of climbing, you’ll be driven back to airport. We’ll say goodbye and you'll take your flight back, with thoroughly worn out skin and, with any luck, a load of photos of you crushing Italian boulders to show off to your friends at home. Serious bragging rights.
