Carl Swedberg

Carl has his degree in Exercise Science and has been working at one of the country’s most profound health clubs (PRO Sports Club in Bellevue, WA) for the past 20 years. Among the many other things he does, he teaches a fitness class called Mountain Conditioning preparing people for alpine adventures. He enjoys mountaineering, trail running, skiing and is always thinking about the next challenge/adventure. His climbing resume includes all Washington volcanos at least twice, several other Cascade peaks, and a handful of other climbs in the region. He is an intermediate graduate of Seattle Mountaineers. Carl also has the unique mountaineering accomplishment of being naked on top of all five Washington volcanoes and Mount Olympus.


Day 1: Arrival in Naxos

Arrival in Naxos, transfer and settle to your hotel. The rest of the day is free to relax, the Naxian way: swim in the turquoise crystal clear Naxian sea and then walk and explore the town.  

Chora has an interesting mix of Venetian and Cycladic elements, and it has kept its authentic and traditional character. Above the port stands the impressive Venetian castle, and in the northern part of the capital, a long-paved road leads to the Temple of Apollo and the famous Portara (Big Door) which is the gate of the temple.  

In the evening enjoy a nice Welcome Dinner to get to know your group.
