Highlights

Starting from Livadi Arachova altitude plateau, we follow a smooth route through the fir forest of Parnassos. Near Kalania, at an altitude of 1,300m, we have the opportunity to see from above the entrance to the underground cave "Eptastomos", which hosts the southernmost glacier in Europe! Inside it maintains an average temperature that does not exceed 0 degrees Celsius all year round! This chasm was not considered by chance by the ancient Greeks as one of the entrances to Hades. Join us to discover the unknown treasures of Mount Parnassos!
