Kalavryta Back Country Skiing! Enjoy beautiful back country skiing routes on the mythical Mount Chelmos!

Highlights

  • Spectacular views of the Corinthian Gulf and surrounding mountain peaks
  • Ski on undiscovered paths
  • Choose your route according to your ski level

Our Trekking Hellas guide meets and picks you up from your establishment in Kalavryta. 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 Kalavryta Back Country Skiing experience. After a small briefing, we have the opportunity to choose between two hiking routes according to the skiing level of the group and the weather conditions:

Easy Route

Distance:6 km

Ascent: 500m / Descent: 500m

Moderate Route:

Distance:9 km

Ascent: 700m / Descent: 1000m

From the base of the ski resort, we head west, towards undiscovered slopes of 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 Peloponesse, as well as the mountain range of Mainland Greece towards the North, while having a picnic. We will then enjoy couloir and alpine skiing, while enjoying the views of the Corinthian Gulf. Due to the climate, the quality of the snow is usually mint and powdery.

At the end of either route we choose, we will enjoy a traditional snack with a warm beverage.

Trekking Hellas offers a variety of activities in Kalavryta and the Peloponnese, like the Vouraikos Cog Railway Hike or the Off Road Tour in Mt Chelmos. In close proximity to Kalavryta in the region of Arcadia you can enjoy Rafting and Hiking in Lousios Gorge. Our tours  can be incorporated in our multi day adventures likes our Active and Culture Tour in the Peloponnese.
