The Kalymnos Trail

The Kalymnos Trail, a multi-day trekking route around Kalymnos, was established in 2015. As it winds its way around the island, it follows most of the existing 'classic' paths but also rediscovers many exciting old shepherds' trails. The route visits all parts of the island and can be done as a continuous hike or as a series of 10 full-day or half-day sections. The Trail visits mountain tops and monasteries, cliffs and castles, beaches and Byzantine ruins. The scenery encountered displays an unforgettable combination of sea, sun and rugged limestone peaks.

Kalymnos Rescue Team

Short History

Kalymnos Rescue Team was formed in 2013, by people who live on the island in order to cover, voluntarily, as better as they can, every climbing accident that can occur on the island.
The team’s main purpose is to aid in any accident concerning climbing or other activities that take place on land and in rough areas that medical care cannot reach easily, as in trekking paths around the island.
The team consists of 23 people, climbers and non climbers, Kalymnian and foreigners who live on the island for a long time now. The team has trained members to operate on the ground, as well as above it, in any height a climbing accident can occur. The first training was performed by an instructor of the Hellenic Federation of Mountaineering & Climbing and a second one was from Lyon Equipment, UK, both in rope rescue techniques.
Kalymnos rescue team was formed by the initiative of local businesses, Alternet tourist services and Wildsports climbing shop, and supported by the Petzl foundation and the Municipality of Kalymnos. Now, the team’s basic funds come from peoples’ support and donation. Our top priority is to keep training, in rescue techniques and first aid, and to have all the necessary material for rescue.
