Two thousand four hundred and seven vertical meters come between the seaside village of Kardamili and Profitis Ilias peak, the summit of Taygetos, the roof of the Peloponnese. Yet, on any cloudless day the summit is clearly visible from all corners of the village. So high and yet, so close.
This is no ordinary mountain. Taygetos is Mani’s ‘male child’ as Nikiforos Vrettakos poetically put it. But then, Mani is no ordinary place.
From Vyros majestic gorge, through Vasiliki’s timeless forest down to Trachila’s sea sculpted rocky coves, Western Mani is blessed with a landscape so diverse that can keep you busy for a lifetime exploring it. Walk, trek, run, climb or cycle through it. If you have got the appetite, you will need a guide.
This is where we can be of help. We are the “2407 Mountain Activities” Team, professionally active in the area since 2008.
You will find our shop and base of activities in Kardamili’s main street at the refurbished traditional stone building opposite the Post Office. So drop by and tell us about your sporting fancy so we can help you organize it.
