HORSE RIDING

While exploring the countryside on foot is a great way to go off the beaten track, there’s only so far your legs can carry you. So why not enlist the help of a much more able four-legged friend and head out in search of those hard-to-get-to rural areas on horseback.

Enjoy mini-cruises to the picturesque Saronic islands of Spetses, Hydra and Poros. The programme was varied and fun-filled with barbecues, picnics and cruises to Hydra and Spetses, thus began the tradition of day cruises in the Argos-Nafplio-Tolo area.

PHOTO TOUR NAFPLIO

Take your camera and come to join photographic excursions

Photographic trips for all levels of photographers to make the most of your photographic capabilities.In Photo tour we are a group of photographers who, through different paths, reached a common point which is no other than our love for photography and shooting. Our main desire is to revisit through our photo lenses historic places of unique beauty, and other locations that most people ignore. We touch peaks, walking through rough and remote paths and lead us to monasteries, built many centuries ago. We meet rivers and beaches, away from the noisy cities.

WINE TOUR

By knowing the local traditional products

By knowing the local traditional products, you also get to know the area, the local customs, the folk tradition and the culture. Through these wine tours that we suggest, wine lovers and passengers of tradition come closer to the production and to our wine culture, which began many centuries ago. Homer’s vinicultured Peloponnese forms a wine destination, as native varieties were born on its land (even since Pausanias’s vine), such as the globally known Agiorgitiko and Moschofilero, but also Roditis, Kidonitsa, Rokaniaris and many other varieties, through which you can get to know the local nutritional habits and the local traditional cuisine.

RELIGIOUS TOURISM

Religious travel is a type of tribute to pilgrimages of earlier times

Religious tourism is an alternative form of tourism that stems from the believers’ need to witness the greatness of their faith and come closer to their religion. This need and quest of the believers’ has for decades been the drive for visiting specific destinations. Religious travel is a type of tribute to pilgrimages of earlier times.

Cross over the harbor to the west and continue where the walls of Acronafplia drive. After leaving on your right the last cafeterias, you find the stairs that lead you to Panagitsa.The high cliffs of Akronauplia are pricklies on the one hand and the sea on the other. Passing through the arch formed by the rock, head towards Arvanitia where you can swim all year round.

ARVANITIA – KARATHONA

Here you will find either the paving of the previous track or the street lights

We continue on dirt road with pine trees, laurels and small palms. Only a difficult ascent is for cyclists and that in return. Shortly after you arrive at Neraki you can swim in the small beach or if you love climbing, you can climb at the back rocks. Nafplion is one of the favorite destinations for rock climbing. All fields are easily accessible and most of them go on foot. The routes are mostly sportive, opened to good quality limestone rock. The area is ideal for climbing all the years.

If not, continue until you reach the Gulf of Karathona, the largest beach of the area, with “Blue Flag”, where find shelter swimmers, couples and friends. Walking on the beach, on your left on a small hill with rocks there is hidden a small chapel, Panagia i Katakekrimmeni, and on the other end of the beach the church of St. Constantine. From there you can continue to the lighthouse of St. Nicholas, another bumpy ride with a small road on the rocks. If you have time, then enjoy the sunset; you and the nature.
