Customized trip for 2018

Throughout the year and between organised trips, I take care of organizing your trip in Kalymnos

what I organize for you*

  • Find the right airline to take you to Kalymnos
  • Moving around the island
  • Book an accommodation corresponding to your wishes and your budget, not too far from the cliffs, in a delightfully romantic place, overlooking the sea…
  • Rent a scooter or a car to go shopping, go around the island, dine with your lover in a small restaurant that imposes itself, get off the beaten tracks
  • Finding a trusted babysitter to keep your children and climb as a couple
  • Know where the best places are, where to have breakfast before climbing, eat a famous Greek salad, drink a beer on the beach in a deckchair, or party in the evening
  • Convince your partner who does not climb that there is everything on the island to ensure him/her a dream stay

*I have identified some of the best providers, the best addresses and established local contacts with trusted people who offer quality services. I will open my address book with great pleasure and introduce you to the providers you choose.

when we go Rock climb together*

  • Pick you up at the hotel or in your accommodation and bring you to the cliffs that you will have chosen
  • Put the rope if you want to top-rope, put the draws if you climb on lead, belay you and give you some advice from the climbing instructor if you wish
  • Provide you with the climbing equipment (rope, belay system, draws, harness, helmet…) to travel light
  • To help you to choose the cliffs among the 65 sectors of the island those which correspond to your level (more than 3 000 routes), to your type of climbing (slabs, steep wall, tufa etc), to the best exposure according to the weather (wind, sun, temperature), to the length of the approach, to the frequentation according to the seasons etc.
  • Teaming up with you on a multipitch
  • Discover Deep Water Soloing

*I will guide you to discover a variety of exceptional cliffs, in a magical environment that smells thyme (and sometimes goat)  you will return forever seduced by the sirens of the island if you abandon the prudence of Ulysses.
