About our Rock Climbers on this Retreat
Outdoor Adventures Portugal – Isa & Pierre
We are Isa and Pierre, the faces behind Outdoor Adventures Portugal. We might have different cultural backgrounds (Pierre – French & Portuguese; Isa – German) but one thing we have in common and that’s our passion for nature. We have explored and travelled through Europe, Africa & Asia in search of new adventures. Eventually this passion became our job. Since 2014 we are the proud owners of Outdoor Adventures Portugal and since have been taking people from all over the world on all sorts of adventures. Despite being passionate about Surfing & Mountain Biking – Rock Climbing has been our focus for the past 7 years and what gives us the most pleasure when it comes to teaching & coaching. We would be thrilled to have you on board with us!
Born and bred in Lisbon, Pierre is just as passionate about his country, like any other native Portuguese inhabitant you will end up exchanging a few words with, as he is about sport. With his bachelor degree in sports science he can conciliate his passion with his studies. He worked for several years as a surf coach and still loves to go surfing but climbing has taken a big part in his life.
Born and raised in Bavaria (Germany), Isa always had connection to mountain and nature sport. Isa accomplished her Bachelor degree in sports sciences in Austria and graduated her Master degree in sports management in Lisbon. During her sports studies, she completed various courses and formations in rock climbing and specialized in outdoor sports. In 2012 Isa moved to Portugal and since, also surfing has become one of her hobbies, but her heart is still beating for the mountains and the climbing walls. Since 2014 she guides climbing enthusiasts from all over the world and shows them the unique climbing areas in Portugal.
