Ancient Footpath Delphi Hiking is a historic and inspiring hike that combines beautiful nature with the mystery of ancient temples!

A historic and inspiring hike, part of the E4 European trail! It makes its way down the slopes of Mt Parnassos leading to the village of Delphi. It is the ancient footpath that God Pan’s worshipers took from the ancient temples of Delphi to the Corycean Grotto to celebrate holy rites. Our hike starts on the Livadi plateau at an altitude of 1200 m. Following the ancient path through lush forests, we descend to the Delphi sanctuary! A magical spot overlooking the olive trees valley and the Corinthian Gulf with the imposing mountains of the Peloponnese as a backdrop. This is a hiking tour and no visit or guidance to the Archaeological Site is included.

Highlights of Ancient Footpath Delphi Hiking:

  • Following the ancient Greeks steps and part of E4 European path
  • A unique view on Delphi Ancient sanctuary, the Olive Grove, the Corinthian Gulf
  • Only 650 m altitude difference from an Αlpine to a Mediterranean landscape

Spectacular views

Who knew Greece has such diversity in Nature. The Kirra trail is an ancient one and full of moments of wonder. Starting to hike in beautiful apline Livadi plateau and through mountain shrubs and herbs,all the way to the charming and isolated St George chapel, this tour is amazing and spectacular. The panoramic views of the olive grove and the sea will reward you. Excellent and helpful guide.
