Hiking Lousios Gorge is a unique hike into untouched nature following the path of history.
Accompanied by our enthusiastic team of local guides, you will 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. You will visit the most historical monasteries and end the hike at the archaeological site of Ancient Gortyna, along the rushing Lousios river that used to be named Gortynios in the ancient times. Your experience ends with a delicious homemade picnic made from Greek local ingredients. During the summer time you can also enjoy a refreshing swim in the crystal clear waters of Lousios.
