LPY 23 Greece Packing Checklist


Ready to explore the island of Kalymnos, Greece!?!

This destination is a rock climbers paradise. Kalymnos is one of the greatest sport climbing areas in the world! With over 3400 routes accessible by a short hike, there are options for every ability level.

The number of available spots for this trip are very limited.



Kalymnos is a small Greek island in the Aegean Sea. The irregular coastline offers beautiful beaches, crystal waters and many coves to explore.

The colorful and historic villages on Kalymnos give the island remarkable character.

When we are not rock climbing our local guide will transport us around the island to the best beaches, cute villages, restaurants and all the places less traveled, you definitely want to see!



The incredible cliffs and high quality of rock found on Kalymnos make it THE top rock climbing destination in all of Europe! We get to rock climb every day of our trip with a certified local guide. Not only does he know all the best spots, but he will choose routes that fit our groups ability level.

One of the best parts of climbing outside is hiking to the climbing location to start the day. This is a wonderful perk that not only gets you warmed up for climbing, but allows you to become familiar with the area.

You can expect to climb 4-6 routes each day, with plenty of rest between climbs. It is not necessary to have experience climbing to join this retreat, but spending time in a climbing gym will help you feel better prepared.

A minimum goal is to spend at least 5x climbing in a gym or outside before the trip, and become familiar with your harness, equipment and shoes.

It is highly recommended (but not required) to take a belay course as well. Having this experience will be a great advantage when we get to our first route!

If you have your own harness, chalk bag, shoes and/or helmet please bring them. Otherwise, these items will be provided for you. Leave your belay device, carabiners, and quickdraws at home, we will use the ones provided by our guide.



We will stay in a private 3 bedroom / 2 bath villa located in Panormos, only a 5min walk from the beach, cafes and shops.

The house is fully equipped with a full kitchen, dining room and an outdoor terrace. Each room has the option to be setup with a King bed or 2 singles.



Travel should be booked to and from the Kos International Airport (KGS).

Plan to arrive in Kos on Oct 15, 2023 prior to 8pm. Departure from Kos on Oct 22, 2023 should be after 11am. These times are important because we will ferry between Kos and Kalymnos on arrival and departure days.
