Overview

After your arrival at the Orias Guest House & Farm you have a first acquaintance and information on technical and general issues of the activities that will follow.
The next day we pick you up from your establishment. After collecting our necessary equipment, we head towards the base of the Kalavryta ski resort at an altitude of 1,700 meters, where we get ready for our activity. After a small briefing, we have to choose between two hiking routes according to the skiing level of the group and the weather conditions.
From the base of the ski resort, we head west, towards undiscovered slopes to the Helmos mountain range. We will come upon a mountain refuge and enjoy the spectacular views of the surrounding mountain tops of the rest of the Peloponnese, as well as the mountain range of Mainland Greece towards the North. We will then enjoy the descent to the slopes of Helmos with alpine skiing, enjoying the view of the Corinthian Gulf.
The second day will follow the same pattern, with our initial destination being the ski center and this time we will explore the north side of Helmos on slopes of greater difficulty both during the ascent and during the descent.
At the end of the day, we will enjoy a traditional treat and snack with a hot drink.
