Our walks give us the chance to explore the history and culture as well as the truly magnificent scenery around us. Spring is the perfect time for us to enjoy the host of wild flowers that abound here. The walks range in length and are in the Intermediate category, with some climbs and more difficult terrain underfoot. Most of the routes follow old mule tracks “kalderimi” between villages and give us the chance to see truly unspoilt parts of the area. The descent of the spectacular Viros Gorge is a highlight of the week, along with swimming in secluded coves and glimpsing into beautiful frescoed churches. We will stop in village kafeneons for coffee, or sometimes lunch, and to watch the world go by. We will do 5 days walking with an optional excursion on the free day.
We stay at the fabulous Liakoto self-catering apartments which are spacious and have beautiful views. There’s a lovely pool for a post walk dip too. Breakfasts are varied and a real treat with local honey and yoghurt on offer. Lunch is not included – there is a small supermarket and some independent shops to buy supplies – and you have a fridge to store things which makes it easy. Dinners are organised by your guide each evening (excluding the free day) and are inexpensive set menus (not included).
