Earlier this week we took a hike along a spectacular trail off the slopes of Mount Taygetos with "Experience Nature."
It was a great way to escape the extreme heatwave and take refuge into a cool and inviting forest which is unspoiled and unbelievably majestic. We felt as though we were the first to see this magnificent path. The natural terrain and waterfalls which form natural pools seem untouched and beckon you to stay in this hidden paradise.
Our kids aged 15,14,13, and 9 all thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a perfect blend of challenging and relaxing. The highlight of the trip was exploring the spring and falls where naturally sculpted rocks lend an outstretched hand to even the most doubtful of revelers. One pool spills into the next as you progress up the various stages that welcome you to yet another refreshing room.
Our guide Ervin was very hospitable and kind. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable about the terrain, he also pointed out sites outside of the organized tour. I look forward to my next trip back to Lakonia so that we can experience the next level of hiking as well as rock climbing!
For those not used to the challenges of lightly traversed trails, I would recommend long pants and sleeved shirts since the undisturbed wild thorny brush can be unpredictable at times.
