For adrenaline junkies, a vertical adventure in the shape of a rock climbing holiday is the perfect way to let off some steam and burn off energy, and there are some truly breath-taking destinations around the world where you can head to do just that.

Yosemite National Park in the United States, with its iconic granite cliffs, serves as a stunning backdrop for exhilarating climbs, and you can enjoy spectacular vistas all the way up and down.

After an action-packed day of scaling cliffs and conquering summits, you’ll no doubt want to retire to luxurious digs for the evening, and the Ahwahnee, nestled amidst breath-taking surroundings, is the perfect place. Yosemite’s most distinctive upscale hotel, it’ll first win you over with its magnificent façade and architecture and, inside, you’ll find luxurious yet traditional rooms and all of the modern comforts you’ll need.

For somewhere a little closer to home and next-level luxury to boot, consider the breath-taking Dolomites in Italy, instantly recognisable thanks to their dramatic limestone peaks, where you can take your pick of lavish five-star hotels. We love the Hotel Ansitz Plantitscherhof in Merano, with its verdant gardens, spectacular outdoor pool and opulent spa, or the Schloss Freudenstein, where you can stay in an historic castle.

To ensure a relaxing and stress-free break, be sure to take out some rock climbing travel insurance before you go for peace of mind.
