Long Pelion Trail
The eighth section of Long Pelion Trail follows the coastal road between Afissos and the neighboring settlement of Lefokastro, then the trails to Kalamos. After Kalamos, the route ascends to the village of Argalasti, the economic and social center of Southern Pelion.
The first part of the route, which connects Afissos with Lefokastro, follows a paved road. The section from Lefokastro to Kalamos retains its naturalness, as well as the ascent to Argalasti. The paths of this section are clear, well maintained and the route, either on well-preserved trails either on the coastline or on the mild and verdant slopes, is always pleasant and bright.
