Hikes around Areopoli

The hiking trails around Areopoli are the best maintained of the whole area. The most popular is the relatively long but very enjoyable route from Areopoli to the Kelefa Castle (from where you can call a taxi). The Areopoli-Omales-Diros beach is only feasible by a variant following the cement road, while the trail from Areopoli to Xepapadianika is virtually completely closed.

Hikes around Oetylo

The hikes around Oetylo are relatively well-trotten. The deviation to the monastery of Decoulon is interesting. The ascent from New Oetylo to the castle of Kelefa follows a newly opened earth path.

Hikes near Pyrgos Dirou

Hikes to Mezapos

The long hike from Agiadaki to Mesapos cannot be concluded on the old trail: some sections are clear, while in others the hiker has to walk through the olive groves.
