(30 votes)
Spectacular Trekking following the stream bed of Vouraikos river, which links Kalavryta with Diakopto, in one of the most beautiful natural sights in Greece.
We follow the path next to the railway, which is a part of international path E4, through the narrow gorge up into the mountains, through tunnels, over waterfalls and bridges, along cliffs and through forests of pine and oleander trees.
We visit the historical village of Kalavryta with the traditional home made goods and have a walk through its cobblestone paths.
With the help of our 4X4 vehicles we cross the unique forest of Mt. Helmos through rivers and streams to reach Tsivlos Lake enjoying the breathtaking views.
