Description

Spend a day hiking around and exploring Mount Parnitha, the closest mountain to Athens and an epicentre of Greece's most diverse flora and fauna. Sights of dense fir forest, jagged mountain peaks, and a variety of flourishing wildlife greet you from every angle throughout this guided tour.

Start the day with convenient pick-up from your hotel and a ride to the dense and sprawling Parnitha National Park. The reserve features numerous mountain hiking trails of varied difficulty that are suitable for hikers of all abilities, so you're in for a scenic jaunt through nature that won't leave you overly exhausted. Make your way to a trailhead and begin your trek, with a friendly guide leading the way and offering lots of colourful commentary.

This reserve is celebrated for its flourishing Greek fir trees, grasses, and shrubbery, as well as endemic flower species like crocus and tulips. Be sure to keep an eye out for red deer and other elusive animals poking their heads through the thick vegetation. Pass by a secluded Byzantine chapel and see the remains of an ancient theatre, then stop for a light meal of Mediterranean fare. Your experience ends with hassle-free transport back to your hotel.

We had a great time. The wind was strong but our guide made sure we had all we needed to face it. Beautiful views and lovely paths finished with a nice typical Greek lunch in the chalet. Perfect day.
