A road trip. A scenic route. A mountain less known.
A place where the mountain merges with the sea, history with legend and culture with tradition.
Explore mount Kissavos with a mini bus or 4x4 vehicle of Trekking Hellas. Starting from the village of Velika we will drive, visit and discover hidden treasures of the relatively unknown mountain of Thessaly.
The drive takes us through dense forests, rivers and dirt roads leading to small villages where we can visit local mansions and historic monasteries of the region.
Velika - Agia - Metaxochori - Megalovrisso - Anatoli (visit the monastery where the nuns will make us coffee) - Spilia - Kanalos* - Arioprino - Karitsa - Kokkino Nero - Koutsoupia - Paliouria - Velika
* At Kanalos we will visit the mountain shelter of Kissavos where we can - weather & daylight permitting - begin our hike to the summit, Prophitis Elias (1.978 m). Alternatively, instead of going to the summit, we can go for some caving and explore the "Nymphs Cave" in Spilia.
The route can be tailor-made and altered, depending on the areas of interest to include: Olympus, Kissavos, Mavrovouni, Peneus Delta or Pelion.
