Tour overview

God Pan’s Mythical Cave Hiking. An exploration of a mythological place, the Corycian Cave.

We hike through a lush fir forest for about an hour to the Corycian Cave, also known as Pan’s Cave. Dedicated to the God Pan and the Corycian Nymphs, the cave is known not only for its beauty but also for its ancient myth, proclaiming that the cave was visited by divine spirits. It was formed by underground waters in ancient times. Scientific research showed that the cave was inhabited from the Neolihic era and the abundant finds date back from the Neolithic to the Classical period. The cave is connected to Delphi by an ancient footpath pilgrims use to follow in ancient times. We will follow an uphill forest road connecting Arachova altitude plateau central road to the cave. This hike offers easy going moments in nature and is an opportunity to learn all about Greek mythology.
