Our Hiking Kardamyli tour starts from the fortified tower-houses of old Kardamili as we follow the path that once was part of the ancient “Royal road” connecting the village with Sparta. Along the way we visit some of the other traditional, beautiful little villages of the region, walk through their narrow alleys and learn about their interesting past.
Byzantine churches, stone built watchtowers, old fountains olive and grain mills reveal the life of the ages before. In a small distance ahead, mount Taygetos stands snowed in some of its highest peaks. A small break for a healthy and delicious picnic with traditional local delicacies gives us an additional supply of energy!
A burst of colors and fragrances of flowers and herbs overwhelm us and bring us even closer to this natural environment. We walk through an easy, sometimes stone built and sometimes shady pathway, immersed in olive trees, pines and cypress trees. En route we discover all the elements and images that make up the scenery of Mani, a glorious area with incredible significance to the history of Greece!
