Rock Climbing on Kalymnos

Kalymnos Island has become one of the most popular rock climbing destinations in the world. Its unique rock quality, easy and fast access to links between climbing areas, a mild climate and the warm hospitality of local inhabitants, have made Kalymnos a favorite amongst rock climbers.


Weather & Climate

Greece is known for its very hot summers. Spring and autumn are the best times of year to go. We organise climbing trips to Kalymnos in May and October, when it is not too hot, the sea is warm and the days are long.

Look below for upcoming holidays and courses in Kalymnos.



You will be staying in nice and comfortable Greek style apartments with wifi, a small kitchen facility and a balcony or terrace. The perfect place to relax and rejuvenate. The apartments are within walking distance of restaurants, tavernas, shops and nightlife in the village of Massouri. For those wanting to explore Kalymnos, transport is readily available. You can either go by bus or taxi or rent a scooter. Most climbing venues are within walking distance of your accommodation and the water taxi port to take the ferry to the island of Telendos is just down the road.
