Tour overview

Family Forest Hike & Picnic a wonderful way to spend your day with family and friends! The National Park of Mt. Parnassos was created in 1938 and is with Mount Olympus one of the oldest National Parks in the country. It is located at the borders of the prefectures of Phocis and Boeotia, between Delphi, Arachova and Agoriani villages. The Cephalonian fir tree and the juniper tree are the main species we will cross in the dense forest area at an altitude of 1200 m with a great view to the summits. For Ancient Greeks Mount Parnassos was home of the beautiful Nymphs, daughters of mother earth «Gaia». We will follow a smooth path and have the opportunity to see the entrance of the Eptastomos underground cave that was formed by the southern glacier of Europe and was considered by the ancients as one of the underworld entrances. We will enjoy a picnic stop with local traditional specialties. This program is suitable for families with young children.
