About Kalymnos island

Kalymnos is probably the most popular climbing destination in the world. Is the place, where climbers enjoy their dreams. Tiny island Kalymnos in the Mediterranean sea is surrounded with around 2500 amazing routes all shapes of overhang walls with greatest tufas, steep vertical pockety lines and bunch of slabby routes on compact grey limestone. Kalymnos is just amazing. Definitely, you must visit this climbing paradise! :-)  Routes are well bolted and not far spaced, so they are perfect for practicing leading climbing and for those who really afraid to lead climb we will teach you to enjoy it. Not only climbing is great, but the whole tourism is also focused on climbing. This is maybe one of the few places where climbers are welcome. In small village Masouri ˝climbers village˝ you can find everything that climber needs, from the accommodation, amazing restaurants, and great food with friendly prices, climbing shops, massage, yoga lessons, food stores, etc. Best season condition is in spring and autumn, that’s when in central Europe is getting rainy, so it’s better to go on the island of Kalymnos and enjoy sunny days and swimming in the sea.
