All-inclusive Climbing & Yoga Week

(7 days, 6 nights)

All-inclusive Climbing and Yoga Week

7 days, 6 nights in Geyikbayiri, Turkey

next dates: 17. – 23. March 2024 & 15. – 21. September 2024

Welcome to a week of self-discovery, adventure, and inner peace amidst the stunning climbing rocks of Geyikbayiri, Antalya! 

Nestled within the cradle of nature’s grandeur, our climbing and yoga holiday invites you to embark on a transformative experience like no other. Imagine scaling rugged rock walls that kiss the sky, feeling the exhilaration of reaching new heights, and then grounding yourself in the ancient wisdom of yoga as you breathe in the fresh mountain air. 

This is the essence of our Sunclimbing climbing and yoga vacation week – a harmonious blend of physical challenge and mindful serenity set against the breathtaking backdrop of Turkey’s magnificent terrain.

Whether you’re an outdoor enthusiast seeking a new thrill in rock climbing, a gym climber wanting to take their climbing to the rock or a curious adventurer, who hasn’t been climbing or doing yoga at all, join us for an unforgettable adventure that will elevate both your body and soul. 

Everything you want to know

For who is the Climbing & Yoga Week just right?

For anyone who wants to learn climbing from scratch, improve their beginning climbing skills, or move from the gym to the rock. For anyone who wants to feel the benefits of a daily yoga practice on their own climbing experience first hand. And for those who love nature and adventure, want to be uplifted and grounded at the same time, and all this in a small, international group. 

Are you longing for a time out where you don’t have to worry about anything except your flight? We are looking forward to you!

No previous experience is necessary. Yoga and climbing are taught in English.


Getting there

You have to arrange your own travel to Antalya. We are happy to provide assistance or make recommendations upon request.

Pick-up and transport from and to the airport or from Antalya (center) are included in the afternoon of the arrival day and in the morning of the departure day. In case of different arrival times or days, a separate pick-up can be organized for an extra charge. 

If you would like to extend your stay to explore the area, go hiking or visit one of the many historical sites before or after the retreat, please contact us!


Venue of the event, accommodation and catering

The accommodation is in the beautiful bungalow camp “The Land” in the climbing village of Geyikbayiri, Antalya, Turkey.

The climbing village Geyikbayiri

The best place to go sport climbing in Turkey is undoubtedly Antalya and in particular the crags of Geyikbayiri. Geyikbayiri is the largest sport climbing area in Turkey with well over 1200 routes, situated only 25km from the vibrant city of Antalya. 

The quality and beauty of the rock in Geyikbayiri, plus Antalya’s climate (mild temperatures in March), and the relative ease of transportation are the prime reasons that pull climbers to the area. You will climb on superb limestone rock, perfect for beginners as well as experienced climbers.

The atmosphere here is very laid-back, ideal to disconnect and reconnect. 

„The Land“ 

The Land means beautiful bungalows surrounded by great nature. The nature here quietly affects all guests, expands the breath and imagination, and most importantly, it allows you to relax safely by leaning to the mountains and facing the sea.

The place invites you to stay: with its natural pool, a sauna, a tastefully decorated lounge area with terrace and mountain views.

The Land is very close to the rocks and close to the Sunclimbing Climbing School. 

The beautiful yoga platform for the daily yoga sessions is nestled in a quiet corner of forest and near a mountain stream, 120 m² in size, surrounded by glass.

But please, see for yourself:

You can choose your bed in three different kinds of bungalows:

  • with three single beds
  • with one double bed
  • with two single beds in separate rooms

All bungalows have heating/air-conditioning, a private bathroom with permanent hot water & towels, and a private terrace. 

Please indicate your desired category when booking, the room requests will be taken into account in order of registration.

Catering 

Included:

  • 6x vegan/ vegetarian breakfast „Turkish Style“
  • 5x lunch package to take to the rock (lunch package for the rest day can be provided, if needed)
  • 6x dinner (home-made vegan/vegetarian dinner at the camp, dinner at nearby restaurants)
  • water and fruit for the day

The Climbing Course

During 4 days of climbing (with one rest day after the second day) you will learn everything you need to know about rock climbing and experience the power of the rocks yourself. Geyikbayiri is a pure climbing paradise! 

The climbing course will be tailored to the needs of the group. From absolute beginners to climbers with some experience (in the hall or on the rock): Our experienced and certified guides will teach you the essentials of rock climbing and share their in-depth local knowledge with you. They will present you with a new challenge every day, always adapted to your personal level. Whether it’s your first time ever climbing or your first steps outside a climbing gym, the guides will find the right climbing spot for you.

The course is less suitable for very advanced climbers.

All material is included, climbing shoes can be rented on site if needed.

If you have your own shoes, helmet, harness etc. of course you can bring it!


Yoga

We start the day with an energetic yoga session and end it with a gentle practice. Both 60-minute sequences are structured so that both, a yogi beginner and practiced yogi, can enjoy, thanks to the modifications offered. 

In the morning, we focus on waking up and warming up the body for the upcoming climbing sessions. In the evening, it’s all about depth, stretching and letting go. In this way we create a wonderful balance between exertion and relaxation, helping our bodies to process what we have experienced and creating space for the new.

Yoga mats can be rented on site for a small fee. If you prefer to practice on your own mat, feel free to bring it! Blocks and bolsters are available at the Yogashala.
