Hiking Vouraikos Gorge is a guided day activity in the spectacular gorge.

In northern Peloponnese, between Mount Chelmos and the eastern extensions of Mount Panachaiko lies one of Greece’s best kept secrets. The Vouraikos Gorge! An impressive 20-kilometer-long gorge formed after millions of years by the River Vouraikos. It is part of the Chelmos-Vouraikos National Park thanks to its lush vegetation and incredible natural diversity! Waterfalls, beautiful caves, swift crystal-clear streams, cool springs and impressive rocky cliffs, make this route an unforgettable experience! The trail we follow cuts through the protected area and is part of the long distance E4 European Trail.

During our 5-hour hike, we walk along the tracks of the most impressive attraction of this area: the “Odondotos” Rack Railway. Built in 1896 in order to connect the towns of Diakopto and Kalavryta, it has become an indispensable part of the area! It is often described as the most “spectacular rail route” of the Balkan area. Starting our hike from the town of Kalavryta we will have the opportunity to enjoy the breathtaking scenery and walk through this wonderful nature reserve until we reach Niamata. From here we will hop on the famous Odondotos Rack Railway and ride back to Kalavryta taking in the stunning views along the route! This is a relatively easy hike, suitable for hikers from 10 to 70 years old! Get ready for an unforgettable experience hiking Vouraikos Gorge!
