Rock climbing in Athens may not be as popular as visiting the historic Acropolis, but it’s certainly a unique way of exploring some of the natural attractions of this ancient city.

There are more than 40 crags around the Attika region, some of them in the very center of Athens and others in close locations, like Parnitha mountain.

Whether you are an experienced rock climber or a beginner who wants to get started on this sport, you’ll find exciting opportunities in this area!

Here are some of the highlights of rock climbing in Athens:

  • Routes of all levels of difficulty in great rock quality.
  • Attica basin has outstanding climate conditions all year round.
  • In case you get cold and rainy days, I can take you to some of the best indoor climbing & bouldering gyms in the city.
  • You can mix up your adventure in the rock with sightseeing around them main cultural and historical landmarks in Athens.
  • I’ll take you to the best locations depending on weather conditions (yes, you’ll get shade on hot days) as well as your previous skills and your wishes.
  • You’ll get to see amazing views of the city!

You can contact me for 1 or several days of rock climbing. If it’s your first time, you’ll receive an introductory course and learn the basic climbing and safety techniques.

Then, I’ll take you to some great spots for some top rope climbing. Depending on your progress, you will be able to lead some routes on easy ground.

If you already have some experience as a climber, you’ll be free to take your own path. However, I’ll be there making you feel safe, giving you useful advice on the climbing routes and helping with climbing gear.

About the guide

guide profile img

I am a mountain guide of the Hellenic Federation of Mountaineering and Climbing (HFMC) and an IFMGA mountain guide. I live in Greece, a unique country with some of the least explored landscapes in Europe.

I discovered my passion for mountaineering when I was 17. What started as a hobby soon turned into an exciting profession that has taken me on many expeditions around the world over the last two decades. One of my biggest achievements was reaching the summit of Mt Everest in 2004, as the Deputy Leader of the first successful Greek expedition.

Besides, I studied Mass Media Communication and I'm a Film Director. Producing documentaries is another way of unfolding my love for nature and travel.

I really like designing new itineraries and taking clients off the beaten tracks, allowing them to enjoy authentic experiences in my country.
