The cave of Koukouvagia

The cave of the Owl is a climbing area located in Iraklitsa in Kavala. All routes are sport climbing style and have equipped with anchors. It is a crag for advanced climbers as the easiest route is in the grade of 6c/6c+ (excluding a cross with difficulty 6a that is relatively insensitive line). It has very easy access and only 1h and 10mim drive from Thessaloniki and just 1 hour 10 minutes. All routes are overhanging and require stamina in power.

Access – how to get there

You take the exit to Irakleitsa from the highway Thessaloniki-Kavala and continue until you arrive to Irakleitsa. You don’t enter Irakleitsa, but continue to Peramos through an uphill road. In the peak of the uphill you’ll see a gaz station on your left side. 50m after the gas station and right after the downhill begins, you will turn left on a decent quality road. Continue driving and imagine that you have to drive all the way to the other side of the mountain where you can see the sea. There is a big openning before you start taking the downhill on the dirt road. Walk back on the downhill up climbed with car for approximatelly 30meter and on your left side you will see the path.
