Where: Jura, Poland
Jura – Polish Jurassic Highland is located in southern Poland, between Krakow and Częstochowa and covers about 5000 square km. The whole area is full of beautiful hills with quiet valleys, old forests and fantastically shaped limestone rocks. The highest point is Castle Hill (Góra Zamkowa) – 516 m. During the Earth’s early years, Jura was at the bottom of the sea and there is plenty evidence for this – especially fossils of some small sea creatures. Many of them are hidden in deep caves, which are other highlights of the region. The highlights of the region are medieval castles built on the rocks. They are the reason, the 165km long trekking path throughout the region is called “Eagle’s Nest Trail”.
Our climbing base will be in village Olsztyn near Czestochowa city about 60 km from Katowice airport. The climbing routes are located just “behind the hotel”, within a minutes’ walk. Olsztyn has been very popular for a long time with more than 300 routes from 3+ to 8c+, on various rock formations. Long slabs, 30m vertical walls, overhangs and well-bolted routes are waiting for you. Most of the rock formations surround the ruins of a 14th-century castle which is also worth visiting. The surrounding area guarantees really fabulous views. Olsztyn is a tourist hotspot with nice pubs and restaurants. You have to try Polish beer – you will love it.
- Hotel price: I’m happy to assist you in booking a friendly hotel. You will need to pay directly to the hotel after your stay an average price is €30 per night (breakfast and dinner included). I don’t collect monies upfront for the hotel. You will have your own room with bathroom, bedding and towels are provided.
- Flights and transport: You are responsible for booking your own flight to the place where we run our course. Flights to Poland are an average price of €120 return (check budget airlines Wizzair and Ryanair). I’m happy to pick you up at the Katowice airport as is only 60km away from Olsztyn. Kraków or Warszaw airports is also a good option, you will just need to take the train to Czestochowa city so pick up will be at Czestochowa train station. Why not combining this climbing course with a visit to this historic cities? I strongly recommend staying in Kraków few days!
- Experience needed: This is a basic/intermediate level course. Indoor top-rope climbing and bouldering would be desirable but complete beginners are also encouraged to book. Instructor to student ratio: 1:4.
- The course is run by me personally, read more about me.
