  • Kalymnos is a small Greek island which makes part of the Dodecanese archipelago. It is located North of the well-known island of Kos, not far from Rhodes and the Turkish coast of Bodrum. Kalymnos' dimensions are ca. 25 x 10 km. In the past, the island was famous for its sponge divers. The normal tourism is not invasive and the climbers have started to come here only since 1998. The best periods to come here are spring and fall. The summer is extremely hot and the likelihood of very strong and long-lasting winds is rather high. The climate is very mild and dry throughout the whole year. Rainy days are rare and mostly during winter-time.

    Thanks to the excellent quality of its rock Kalymnos has become one of the most popular destinations in the world for the sport of rock climbing.
    The island offers approximately fifty climbing walls and more than six hundred and fifty routes, with different characteristics and level of difficulty but yet highly secure, easily accessible and very well marked.
    There is a special season to practice climbing on Kalymnos as the island enjoys a mild climate throughout the year and his hospitality is legendary, but are particularly suited autumn and spring.
  • Access: Since August 2006 Kalymnos is connected to Athens with Olympic Airlines flights daily (one hour flight).

    Alternatively you can fly from Athens to the nearby Kalymnos, Kos and then reach at short ferry ride (20 minutes from the port of Mastichari).
