Climb Up Mountain Taygetos

Select Date and Travelers
3 travelers
What to Expect
Starting from the Maganiari spring at 980 meters, where the longer route begins, and on the way to the shelter, by a marked path, we will come across rich fauna and flora which you'll have the chance to photograph.

For the shorter route we'll start right outside the shelter, though the mountain's rich flora won't accompany us much longer as the vegetation gradually decreases and the slope into a new rocky environment increases.

From the shelter, at the Varvara spot at 1,550 meters, we leave the Laconian side of Taygetos behind us and three hours later, climbing the last few meters of the mysterious 'pyramid' we will meet the roofless chapel of the Prophet Elija. The view of the entire Messinian bay will lie before us. The return is through the same places.

We went with two 13yr olds on the climb and later on the ancient messini tour. The climb was a good range of challenges and felt relaxed with the professionalism of the team. 3 guides supporting 6 climbers and sharing their passion. A highlight of the holiday.
