The Kalymnos Trail


The Kalymnos Trail is a multi-day 100km trekking route around the Greek island of Kalymnos in the South Aegean. The route links many of the most interesting places on the island: mountain tops and monasteries, cliffs and castles, beaches and Byzantine ruins. None will forget the exceptional combination of blue ocean and rugged limestone mountains of this journey. This is, however, not a book for the casual stroller; the route is tough and hard. The Trail passes through complex terrain and is best suited to those with experience of hiking and scrambling in mountain environments.

The guidebook contains:
* An introduction to the Kalymnian landscape, flora, fauna, history and archeological sites, with practical advice on hiking on the island.
* A detailed description of The Kalymnos Trail in a series of 10 full-day or half-day hikes.
* Maps based on the Terrain 1:25 000 series.
* A description of 16 additional walks and hikes on the island.

About the Author:
After a first visit in 2002, Carl Dawson has climbed and walked extensively on the mountains of Kalymnos. He and his wife, Ruth, are Greek residents and now share their time between Holmfirth in Yorkshire and Armeos in Kalymnos. Carl has edited several British climbing guidebooks and has contributed to the climbing guidebooks to Kalymnos. This book, however, grew from a strong belief that the old trails of Kalymnos deserve preserving, and their descriptions here are one way to help achieve this.
