Ticino Bouldering Holiday 2019

About Ticino, Switzerland

Switzerland has long been regarded as one of the world’s most popular and historic bouldering areas. Originally frequented by the likes of Fred Nicole and Bernd Zangerl, Switzerland combines some of the most idyllic landscapes, and perfect Gneiss bouldering there is. A mere 2 hours north of Milan, the Italian speaking canton of Ticino offers 3 main areas. With everything from beginners problems to world-class blocs, Ticino has something special for everyone.

Whether it’s the beautiful chestnut covered hillside of Cresciano, or the exquisite stone villages and long winding mountain approach of Brione, Switzerland really is a magical place to climb. Wake up in a beautiful rustic house, with views across the town of Bellinzona, before making a short journey to some of the world’s best boulders.

This place is not to be missed.

Outdoor and Adventurous Activities Edinburgh

Intrepidus Outdoors is an adventure tourism and outdoor education provider based in Edinburgh. We specialise in canyoning, coasteering, mountain biking and mountaineering, and deliver these adventurous experiences across Scotland and the North of England. The experiences that we provide take clients into some of the most exquisite, incredible and extreme environments the UK has to offer.

Our values as a adventure tourism provider and a business

Our values reflect those of a business started by a small group of rock climbers and mountain bikers. The experiences that we have had adventuring, and our passion for the outdoors, has led us to choose a lifestyle dedicated to sharing our love for the outdoors with others. The approach that we take to the experiences that we provide, and the business that we run, is that of sustainability, and an unapologetic quest for quality.

For us at Intrepidus Outdoors, we recognise that our experiences kayaking in clean rivers, surfing on unpolluted beaches and climbing frozen waterfalls have contributed to who we are as people. Therefore, protecting the planet so that the next generation of adventurers can have their own experiences, is hugely important for us. We believe that for people, communities and businesses to make the choice to minimise their impact on our planet, they must first value the planet that we have. We feel that the best way for people to value our blue planet, is to have first hand quality experiences in nature. They can then see the beauty of a forest, feel the power of an ocean and learn to love what is outside our towns and cities, so that they then fight to protect them. We strive to through the products that we deliver make a small difference to peoples understanding of the impact that they have on our world.

Our experiences adventuring have made us who we are and Intrepidus Outdoors is a reflection of us. We provide real adventurous experience that we hope you will cherish.
