What you'll do

After arriving by taxi (a short ride from the centre) at the meeting point which is at the the 'volunteers fire fighters hut' at the end of the road called Leof. Eth. Antistaseos, Kesaraini, we will start on foot along one of the trails selected based upon your appetite for difficulty. We will initially visit an ancient church after a mild ascent where you will also have great views of Pireus and part of the Athens 'bowl'. We shall then commence along a trail to a nearby shrine with its own story. The route could also include a visit to a fascinating Byzantium monastery, entrance 2euros. From here we continue to a botanical walk which has signposted information on the plants. This trail also offers amazing views of Athens including the Acropolis. Finally, we can either contine to a lodge/cafe for food and drinks or contine further up the mountain for more hiking amongst the trees and more trails. During the walks I will stop to point out key city landmarks, local flowers, wildlife (seasonal) and give some historical background on the area. The walks can vary between 1.5 to 3 hrs.

Santha

I am a long term resident of Athens, who after years of enjoying trail walks at an adjacent mountain with unrivalled views of Athens and Pireaus, wants to open the experience to others. Having moved here from London in the 1990s, it was still some time before I discovered this amazing escape to nature accessible from close to central Athens. I go regularly with friends and know many trails of various lengths and difficulties. The trails include mountain paths, sections through trees with many wild flowers and wildlife (all seasonal) en route.
