Karpathos Rock Climbing
Imagine the soaring mountain ranges and the charming quiet beaches at their foot. Breathtaking scenery, tranquility, and legendary white and azure colours all around. The Greek Island Karpathos is the second largest Dodecanese Island and one of the most beautiful in the mentioned archipelago. All the more surprising, the island has had to wait for so long for climbing expeditions. As for the Greek island, it is less developed in terms of tourism, which could be the main culprit for the lack of exploration. However, for this very reason, it is an excellent place for those who seek peace and harmony among the charming nature and still vivid Greek traditions.
Although the island is known for its strong winds, it can also be a refuge for the body and soul. These winds on Karpathos provide climbers little refreshments, especially during difficult climbs and it has also attracted windsurfers – the mountainous southern part of the island has become a windsurfing mecca. If you like the climate and climbing on Kalymnos but you are bored by the crowds – Karpathos is an excellent choice.
