Hiking in Kardamili

This is a hike to the land and the traditions of the Mani, the place where every stone has its own history. Here, the magnificence of the mountainous nature is harmoniously combined with the allure of the sea as gigantic Taygetos mount is so close from the embrace of the Mediterranean.

Our tour starts from the fortified tower houses of old Kardamili as we follow the path that once was part of the ancient so called “royal road” connecting Kardamili with Sparta.

Along the way we visit some of the traditional, beautiful little villages of the region, we walk through the narrow streets as we learn about their past. Byzantine churches, stone built watchtowers, old fountains olive and grain mills reveal the life of the past. A small break for a healthy picnic with traditional local delicacies give us additional supply of energy.

We walk through an easy route, sometimes a stone built path and sometimes a shady pathway, immersed in olive trees, pines and cypress trees. Along the way we discover all the elements and images that make up the scenery of Mani, narrating its past and lifestyle of Mani inhabitants throughout time.
