Argolis is one of the driest places in Greece and also with the best climate, this is due to the Taygatos and Parnon mountains to the west which remove the bulk of the rain from the approaching frontal systems. From the climbers point of view there are four distinct seasons, just like most places!
SPRING. The rainy season is in Febury and predominatly March and these are months to avoid if possible, early April can also have rain and cannot be relied on. Late April, May and June are the ideal time to visit with lush vegetation and spectacular though short-lived flowers. For climbing the temperatures are perfect and the weather generally very stable. The only drawback to visiting at this time of year is the sea temperatures are still fairly low for bathing.
SUMMER. Late June,July, August and early September are the classic summer months with temperatures in the 30°c+ region rising to over 40°C in a hot spell. With this in mind we developed a number of cliffs to allow climbing at this time, taking advantage of the strong sea breezes at this time and the higher altitudes available in the mountains. The end result is one of the few areas in Greece where it is possible to climb in near-perfect conditions all the year round. (See the individual cliff descriptions for their suitability). Rain, with the exception of isolated thunderstorms towards the end of the season. is unknown.
AUTUMN. The best time to visit with stable, cooler weather in the 20´s and with a warm (25+) sea making bathing a pleasure. After mid September the tourists mostly disappear but most bars and restaurants are still open.
WINTER.November and December are still good for climbing but around Christmas and into January there can be a cold northerly wind blowing making climbing uncomfortable, fortunately we have some low level south facing cliffs for this time of year. Snow at the coast is unheard of but the mountains can be covered down to ca. 800m with Didyma being unusable at this time.
