Kalymnos, the real island experience

Kalymnos, the real island experience

This island is the home of the Greek sponge divers. All, of course, the Dodecanese are world known as a place of sponge divers, the best in the world. But, Karpathos, Kassos, Nisyros, Symi, Halki, and above all Kalymnos are the main nurseries of the diving activity spread across the eastern Mediterranean. But they have carried their art, even in America, in the Gulf of Mexico. Also in Florida, in the United States, have founded the city of Tarpon Springs, who live mainly people from Kalymnos, and other Dodecanese Greek-Americans and others who continue the tradition of virtuosos divers. The Dodecanese divers are not only used for sponge fishing, but for every job. The Italian expert Domenico Mantzolani says with admiration that a diver on the island of Symi, George Kangi, in 1913 passed a loop to the anchor of an Italian warship that had been cut down to the bottom. The one diver without diving suit, had managed to stay in bed for 3 minutes and 5 seconds! Each year, approximately 40 to 50 units of fishing boats, with crews of up to 800 to 1,000 sailors, ranging from the islands and especially from Kalymnos and head to the coast of Africa, especially in Tunis and Libya. To achieve the Sponge charged farewell, in Kalymnos are taking place two-day celebrations, which begin with the blessing of the ship and ends with the "Feast of Love". In those celebrations are taking part all the inhabitants of the island. In recent decades, divers of the Dodecanese dive "naked", ie without wearing special protective diving suit and learned their craft in an empirical way. Now they use special protective suits and other modernized equipment, while training at the National Diving School of Kalymnos.

Amorgos - The Island of

Amorgos - The Island of

Amorgos means fresh air, sun, smell from the herbs and an endless view of the bright blue Aegean Sea. You can have this view from almost every single point of your route. Things to be taken into consideration it was not until the mid 1990s that the first proper roads were constructed. These are; a) From Chora to Arkesini southwards, and b) from Chora to Egiali northwards. Before then, the car as a means of transport was of little importance. Donkeys used to be the essential means of transport by land and therefore, a well-designed "system" of cobbled paths used to cross the island and guarantee the transportation of goods to the villages. Despite the fact that nowadays the car has already "invaded" the island, Amorgos remains peaceful and quiet. The traditional paths have mostly been preserved, providing us with amazing opportunities of exploring the island. Even today, it is possible to meet donkeys carrying heavy loads of fresh goat milk from the fields to the villages. It is at this specific moment that time seems to have stopped for a while and an idea of how hard life in Amorgos used to be can be gained. With an altitude of nearly 850 meters, Amorgos offers a variety of different possibilities of exploration. Considering that all this hypsometrical scale is actually completed within a short distance starting from the shore, it is easily understood that certain requirements must be met by anyone attempting such a tour. On the ridges the sun is really merciless. On the high peaks, the whole area can be covered by dense fog within a few minutes, while strong winds usually blow. These hard conditions should not be underestimated in any case. Drinkable water, suitable shoes and a special jacket are necessary. Even in the marked routes, suitable shoes should be worn and drinkable water should be brought along.Below are presented many routes for rambling over the island. Four of these routes go through marked paths (red and white signs with numbers). The "Royal Route" is the route 1, which starts from Chora, goes past the Monastery of Hozoviotissa and continues towards Egiali. This is distance of nearly 16 Kms along the central ridge of the island. It is an unforgettable trip with a view of Naxos, the Small Eastern Cyclades and Ikaria. The route 4 is also wonderful. Starting at Egiali and finishing at Egiali as well, it goes round the whole valley behind the Bay of Egiali. This route goes past the fascinating villages Tholaria and Lagada. The walking time mentioned for each route concerns walkers with medium training and experience. Apart from the routes described below, there are also many other possibilities of exploring the island. For example, there is the route to the high peak of Profitis Helias at Chora (almost 700 meters altitude) or the route to the vertical cliff of Ancient Arkesini in the southern part of the island. There is also the route to the Mountain Korakas, which is the highest mountain of the region. A lot of interesting opportunities for exploration can be found in the Bay of Egiali in the north of the island, such as the remote small bays of Megali Vlichada and Mikri Vlichada which are also suitable for swimming. Whichever route you choose, rambling round Amorgos is a celebration for all the senses.

These are not the only unique beaches mentioned above. There are others which you can visit in combination with a mini cruise with fishing boats. In such a case one can enjoy the Pantieronisia, the small island of Despotiko famous for its archaelogical findings, the beach of Faneromeni, the one of Agios Spiridonas, the cave of Mastihari....all quiet and most beautiful.A cave with stalagmites and stalactites can't help being a natural wonder, and a sight to see. It is known that throughout history, people used it as a refuge until they started building houses, and later on as a place of worship. If finds dating back to the Stone Age had been discovered there, it also would have had some archaeological interest. Antiparos cave has a uniqueness, not only because of its enchanting stalagmites, which took thousands of years to form from water eroding the limestone, but also because of its strong connection with the history of the island. Ancient pots were discovered in the cave as well as a dedication to the goddess Diana. According to an inscription, one of the caves first visitors was Archilochos the Parian who was a great lyrical poet. The names of Macedonian generals can also still be seen. They conspired against Alexander the Great and found refuge in the Cave of Antiparos in order to hide themselves to save their lives.

Kaimaktsalan Ski Centre

Kaimaktsalan Ski Centre

The Ski Centre of Kaimaktsalan got its name from the place name of the mountain which hosts it. The word Kaimaktsalan, according to an analysis of the scholar and professor, Mr N. Sidiropoulos, has Turkish roots and literally means the thief of creamy foam. Why this name was given is not accurately perceived and there are several interpretations based on what is transferred orally from generation to generation. Mount Kaimakatsalan or Voras is on the border with FYROM and its ridge is the line between the two countries. It is the third largest highest mountain in Greece with 2.524m., which is a top in the ski center. At the top, and on the border line, there is the church of Prophet Elias, which is a monument of the first World War. Most of its areas are proposed to be included in Nature 2000.At the foot of the mountain is Lake Vegoritis, one of the largest of Greece in scope and depth, that lies within the geographical borders of three prefectures - Pella, Florina, Kozani - and protected by the Ramshar Treaty. The view from the mountain is spectacular, as one can, with naked eye, observe the Thermaikos Gulf, the peak of Mount Olympus and of course the ski centre of 3-5 Pigadia of Naoussa. When the cloud is low, you feel that you are on an airplane and you see beneath the white quilt-forming clouds. The Ski Center at an altitude of2.050m., where is the main shelter, parking lots, ski schools, ski slopes for beginners, rental shops, vendors and the first lift, and it ends at 2.480m altitude, where is the arrival station of the highest lift of Greece.
