SIX DAYS TRIP

MOUNTAINOUS KORINTHIA - TWO MOUNTAINS AND A LAKE

Enchanting journeys await the visitor at 1,500 meters above sea level, through dense forests on the slopes of Helmos and Ziria. The two mountains, thanks to their rich biodiversity, have been declared as protected areas (Natura 2000 Network) and National Parks. Here lies the source of the River Styx where, according to mythology, Achilles was made invulnerable after his mother dipped him into the water. Images of astonishing beauty reveal at the mountainous villages of Zarouchla and Planitero with running waters and fish farms for trout, salmon and sturgeon. The beautiful landscapes continue at Goura and the Feneos plateau with the ruins of the ancient city, the sinks of Hercules and the plateau of Skafidia in Ziria with flocks of wild horses galloping free. The enchanting memories of this tour complete with Panagia of the Rock, the Meteora of Peloponnese, and the evening outing around Doxa Lake.
