Athens day escape on a spectacular mountain route visiting two lakes and lush landscape. Forests with wild cypress, fir and black pine trees, lakes, rivers, plateaus, chapels and Monasteries compose an incredibly serene setting, focusing on the Ziria Mountains and Feneos River.
Our day starts after we pick you up from your hotel or a point close to the indicated hotel if car access is not possible, and we will follow the national road heading towards central Greece and Trikala Korinthias. We enter the forest of Ziria and an off road route will lead us to our first stop at the beautiful lake Dasiou surrounded from firs and wild mountain vegetation in an altitude of 1600m. Continuing our adventure tour we follow an off road route through the woods crossing wild horse pastures carving a path to the picturesque village of Gkoura and Lake Doxa. Our route passes through one of the most densely populated areas of the Peloponnese and reaches Goura Village and have lunch in a traditional Greek tavern where we will be welcomed by the owner. He will introduce us to the Greek Mediterranean cuisine and heartfelt Hellenic hospitality with plenty of local food and wine. After lunch we will head up towards Feneos River and take a short visit to Lake Doxa. Spending some time around we continue our route into a lush landscape headed and see the impressive Virgin Mary of Rocks in Tarsus and the Holy Trinity Church.
