    Cliff Camping in Dorset

    Cliff Camping

    If you have a taste for adventure and nature, then cliff camping is a bucket list idea you’ll never forget!
    Spend an unforgettable night on the portaledge watching the sunset over the Atlantic Ocean and waves crashing on the rocks below while you enjoy dinner with a 5* view!

    This is not a glamping night- it is a real adventure!

    What is Cliff Camping

    Cliff camping or its real name a Portaledge is a tent in the world of vertical life. It is super strong but made from light weight material which is attached to the rock. These have been used to make major climbing ascents all over the world and were created for climbers who don’t have a ledge large enough to sleep on.

    All you need is a sense of adventure, a head for heights and a basic level of fitness.

    How it Works

    Your instructor will meet you at the agreed venue. The portaledge will be already set up for you. and all you have to do is walk down to the cliff area where the instructor will make you feel relaxed with the environment.

    When he has made a safe area on the cliff top, he will give you the skills to abseil into the portaledge. Here you will be made to feel at home.

    The instructor will be close to hand if you need him, but far enough away so you can enjoy the view and sunset of the Dorset coastline in peace. Our instructor will be on hand if you need anything. He will coach you on how best to move around and make the most of your night on the ledge. You will always be attached to the cliff face and made to feel safe.

    Once settled, your instructor will lower your dinner down to you for you to enjoy while the sun is setting and after you’ve finished dinner it will be hoisted away. You  can then enjoy the evening views and the sea waves below you.

    You will be attached on at all times to keep you safe. In the morning your instructor will give you an early wake up call (6am).  Once you have packed your sleeping bags away you will be able to climb easily to the top and walk back to the meeting point.

    Extra Info


    At each of the meeting points there is a public toilet. The environment that we work and play in is very important to our work ethics. We respect this and therefore only leave footprints, not rubbish.

    Weather Conditions

    Waterproof covers that can cover the whole portaledge are available if there is a risk of a shower. At the same time, we reserve the right to cancel the booking if the weather is looking too bad for a good experience. In that eventuality, an alternative date or a full refund will be offered.
