More Info

Composed of a mountainous peninsula mainland and more than 3,000 rugged and rocky islands, there are plenty of great via ferrata climbing options to be found all over Greece.

Among the most popular spots is the Aoos Valley, on the country’s northwestern border with Albania. Surrounded by Mount Smolikas, the Tymfi massif, the dual peaks of Vasilitsa and Trapezitsa, the via ferrata route is incredibly scenic and perfect for climbers of every level.

For those looking for more of a challenge, the Moní Koimíseos Theotókou Kleistón via ferrata, in Atica, is 6.0 kilometers (3.75 miles) logn and presents many steep and challenging parts; best reserved for experts only.

However, there are also plenty of intermediate-level via ferratas in Greece as well. Konitsa via ferrata, also in the Aoos Valley, is perfect for beginners via ferrata climbers looking for a challenge. There are plenty of others on the mainland, near Thessaloniki as well.

What’s the weather like?

Around Athens and on most of the islands, the springs and autumns have the best weather for climbing, with temperatures around 18 ºC to 22 ºC (64 ºF to 72 ºF) and not very much precipitation. The summers are also extremely dry, but much hotter with temperatures around 28ºC (82 ºF).

How to get there:

Fly into Athens International Airport (AIA). From here, it is fairly easy to take a connecting flight to another part of Greece or take a bus and/or taxi for a nearby trip. Most guides will meet you in a city nearby the starting point of the trip.
