It is a small Greek island which makes part of the Dodecanese archipelago in Greece. Kalymnos 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 has been 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. (PLEASE SEE THE DATES OF COURSE BY OUR CLIMBING SCHOOL). Languages spoken: English, Greek. Currency: EURO. Passport is necessary for non EU travellers, otherwise the identity card is enough. If in doubt, please check with your consulate or travel agency.
OUR OFFER INCLUDES A: 5-DAY- COURSE with an internationally licensed MOUNTAIN GUIDE (language: English, German, Italian), rent of the general technical material such as rope, quickdraws, carabiners.
Kalymnos is best known as the island of some of the word' s finest sponge divers. The sea has always been a focal element in the local life, which has preserved its traditional character colour and style to a great extent - nowadays Kalymnos island is part of a protected National Marine Park. Most of the beaches are rocky and you will find crystal clear turquoise water. The normal tourism on Kalymnos is rather limited. The water temperature in the periods which we are offering is between 18 degree C. in spring and around 22 degree C. in fall. We recommend to bring a light wetsuit (3-5 mm), fins and mask. We especially recommend a visit of the wild Island of Telendos where the new rock climbing crags, the crystal clear water of the sea and the white gravel beaches fulfill the concept of climbing and sea.
