Trekking in Delphi and Mount Parnassos, seat of the Muses – what an experience! First of all I would like to thank all the team in Arachova, the two Georges, Nikos and their wives Effie and Eleni for their commitment and kindness. In the house of Nikos and Effie I enjoyed for the first time in my life a meal of a ragout of wild boar. Thank you again for a pleasant evening and a delicious meal!
On the first two days I walked with George on the old path the pilgrims used to take on their way to question the oracle of Delphi, through olive groves and forests. On the third day Nikos and his wife Effie took me high up to approx. 2000 m in altitude though the skiing area of Mount Parnassos and on the last two days I visited the famous cave of god Pan and a second even bigger one, where according mythology young ladies used to dwell. The trips included a visit to a shepherd who served us Tsipouro and Feta cheese. Delicious!
If you like trekking and at the same time learn many interesting things about history and today’s life in Greece, you will have a great time.
