Climbing in Leonidio
Recently Leonidio is experiencing a boom among climbers, from 2015 many climbing sites have risen, and the potential is enormous. The crags are only 5 to 20 minutes walk from the car park, within a 20 kilometre range from the town. There are other areas like Kiparissy and Napflion which are approximately one and a half hours drive from Leonidio.
During spring and autumn the Greek climate is ideal for climbing, it may be hot during the day but in the shade it will be cooler. Rain may not be excluded, but the water’s temperature during spring time is ideal for a swim, and excellent during autumn.
We will stay in clean and comfortable apartments, Greek style, situated near the sea. Each apartment has free wifi, kitchen, hot shower, bed linen as well as towels.
