Program

Kalymnos is a world-class sport climbing destination. It is magical and beautiful place. What makes this adventure retreat different from other retreats is that Earth Play Retreats bring two American Mountain Guides Association (AMGA) climbing guides who can push your climbing and help you to reach your climbing goals. Earth Play Retreats will work individually with people to help improve movement and proficiency in climbing. There is a high probability, if you are diligent at the retreat, to move up in your climbing skills and movement by at least a letter grade or higher.

This is a great trip for new climbers, too. Both Dale and Heidi have taught hundreds of people the art of rock climbing. This is the perfect chance to learn to climb in a safe and friendly environment with amazing instructors. It is a little more relaxing and mellow than the other trips and it is perhaps the best trip for couples, as this retreat will be very romantic.

Included excursions

  • 4 guided climbing outings
  • 1 Via Ferrata day outing
  • More climbing on your free day if you are not tired or relaxing on the deck, swimming in the beautiful waters of the Aegean See, or exploring the island by scooter or bikes

Retreat location

The Kalymnian landscape is rocky, with rock faces of unique quality for sport climbing, easily accessible within a few minutes walking time from most of the islands settlements and motorways, offering breathtaking views with the endless blue of the Aegean Sea.

Today, the island has almost 2500 well equipped sport climbing routes for all climbing levels; from easy routes for beginners to extremely hard ones for the experts. The island features a series of easy slabs, technical wall climbs, wild overhanging ,and climbs between stalactites. The majority of the routes are single pitch, but several multipitch routes are available as well.

Kalymnos is also an interesting sailing destination, offering shelter to a significant number of sailing boats every year. Most of these sailors tend to return again and again, which is indicative of the quality of the place. The people of Kalymnos are genuine, open-handed, warm-hearted people who will try to make your stay unforgettable. No wonder why some people who come here consider us a piece of heaven here on earth!

Remote beaches, turquoise waters, limestone all around, fresh produce…this island is a paradise. If you like Greek food, you are going to love this trip! This retreat will feature seasonal local produce amazingly prepared in the Greek fashion by our lovely hostess. They even make their own olive oil and cure their own olives (of course). If you are interested in a cooking class, that can also be arranged for a very reasonable rate.
