Kanalia – Drakopigado (map 2A – trail 7)

A trail you can walk round trip in just over two hours (6.6km) but not with ease, as it’s not marked as a designated path and consists mainly of uphill trekking on narrow and rocky footpaths. The dense vegetation and gorgeous views of Lake Karla and the plain of Thessaly make it worthwhile, as does the a visit to the magnificent, vertical cave of Drakopigado (Dragon’s well). Start at the main square of Kanalia, otherwise known as ‘the women’s village,’ where two old-style fishing huts and a traditional boat can be found, and visit the Ecclesiastical Museum in the Church of the Assumption of Virgin Mary. Be careful not to confuse sheep and goat tracks with the walking path.
