Trekking in Greece : The Peloponnese and Pindos Way Paperback / softback
by Tim Salmon
This guidebook presents four specially devised treks in the mountains of Greece, showcasing its beautiful scenery, rich flora and cultural interest.
The Peloponnese Way crosses the Peloponnese peninsula from Dhiakofto in the north to Pantazi beach in the south, via Tripoli.
Taking in alpine meadows, a dramatic gorge and forest-clad slopes, the 220km route can be walked in around a fortnight.
The 460km Pindos Way is a south-north traverse of Greece's mountain backbone, and can be walked in a month, or split into sections of around a week.
With remote terrain, navigational challenge and fewer facilities on route, it is the toughest of the four treks but offers a unique chance to experience both the country's wilderness and traditional mountain life.
A shorter 80km Zagori trek can be enjoyed in its own right or incorporated into the Pindos Way, and the final route explores Mt Olympus, home of the ancient gods of Greek myth and the highest mountain in Greece.
With clear mapping alongside detailed route description for each stage of the treks, as well as background information about the region and a Greek-English glossary.
