The Kalavrita ski resort is considered the second largest in Greece, located on Mount Chelmos (or Helmos) among fir trees and a rocky alpine landscape, hovering between 1,700 meters and 2,340 meters. It is also one of the most organized ski centres in the country with 12 ski runs spread over 20 kilometres, along with two chair lifts and five ski lifts. For advanced skiers, the Styga runs are considered quite challenging and particularly attractive.
Here’s a sandy beach that’s 80 kilometres long, located near a protected site under the Ramsar convention, not far from the Prokopos Lagoon and Strofilia forest. Sporting activities including windsurfing are available at this beach. If you rent a bike you can discover the natural area around.
This is a huge cave by any standards and the largest in the area, lying some 17 kilometers south of Kalavrita and barely 2 kilometers from Kleitoria. With an stunningly enchanting entrance and three different levels the cave looks almost otherworldly, complete with haunting galleries and hanging formations.
A pebbly beach that’s one kilometre long, Alyki or Aliki is about 10 meters wide and features many trees around. Importantly, there is a wetland only 500 meters away, attracting over 230 species of birds every year. The area falls under the Natura 2000 network. No sports facilities are available at this beach.
