Highlights

Leaving our 4x4 drive vehicles in the valley, we follow trails traversing the dense forest of the National park, enjoying the magnificent landscape!

A unique ecosystem with rushing streams, black pine forests, Robola and the rare red pine "pinus sylvestris". Your Trekking Hellas guide will reveal all the "secrets" of the flora and fauna of the park. And of course we won't miss the opportunity to search, in the cold waters of the streams and the alpine lakes, for the protected and rare species of alpine Tritons, Ichthyosaura alpestris. Our hike follows a circular course and returns to our starting point.

After the wonderful tour of Valia Calda, a delicious picnic with local products and mushroom delicacies awaits us (salad, local sausage with mushroom, handmade mushroom pie, mushroom pickle or mushroom soup, local cheeses, tsipouro or wine and... homemade sweet!)
