Infos & Booking


I propose you to try out via ferrata during your visit of the Greek island of Kalymnos: it will give you a unique view of this beautiful Dodecanese island!

The via ferrata of Kalymnos is located above the small village of Myrties, not far from Massouri and the climbing sector of Gerakios. The whole via ferrata, with its approach, takes you 400 meters above sea level and offers you a splendid view of the cliffs of Massouri and the neighboring island of Telendos.

The average duration of the activity is about 4 hours. It depends on your walking speed. Although the via ferrata is not very difficult, the steep approach and the long way back make it an activity for which a certain physical condition is required.

The course can be divided into three parts:

  • It starts with easy and fun climbing, especially on a steep slab.
  • The intermediate section consists of a 40-meter horizontal traverse to the left, which takes place on relatively steep rock and leads to a huge cave with a comfortable ledge.
  • The last section starts on the other side of the cave with an easy but steep path that gradually takes you to the top of the mountain and the end of the route.

If you want to take advantage of your trip in Kalymnos to practice other vertical activities, I can suggest you to take a climbing course, to initiate yourself or to improve, to try deep water solo climbing or to go for a multi pitch route climb. And for those who want to extend the experience, I also offer climbing and yoga stays here in Kalymnos.
