Lousios River

After our wonderful homemade breakfast we will drive to the starting point for today’s hike. A hike into untouched nature following the path of history. We walk in trails parallel and through Lousios river gorge, also known as the “Mount Athos of the Peloponnese”, on account of the monasteries that appear to be literally hanging from the cliffs. We visit the most historical monasteries and end the trek at the archaeological site of Ancient Gortyna, along the rushing Lousios river that used to be named Gortynios in the ancient times. In the afternoon, return back to Athens. Overnight in our hotel.
