This light-to-medium circular walking tour is an excellent introduction to the beauty of the Arcadia. Begin your hike from the central square of the gorgeous traditional village of Vytina in the heart of the Peloponnese. You’ll be walking for about 10 kilometers and climbing some 250 meters overall. The hike will take you right through the old town of Vytina – which in itself is a magical place – to the hauntingly old stone bridge known as Zarzi. Walk along the Mylaontas River and admire how the landscape changes before your eyes, before stopping near a traditional watermill for a break and a bite. Hike to the Saint Elias church which affords a gorgeous view of the whole town below, then head back down to the main square (treat yourself to a lazy coffee or dessert after the hike in the village square).
Price: 30 € for adults and 20€ for children 12-18 years
