Climbing in Kalymnos

The Greek island of Kalymnos is located in the Aegean Sea, near the more famous island of Kos. The island is known for its sea sponges that are still collected today by local fishermen as well as for being one of the most coveted locations to practice sport climbing.

The island is the ideal spot to spend a few vacation days alternating great climbing on local cliffs to relaxing moments on beautiful beaches.

During the months of May and October, Dolomiti SkiRock Alpine Guides organize climbing courses in Kalymnos lasting from seven to ten days.
