Activity Description

A full-day hiking adventure at the highest peak of mount Taygetos at 2407m

Mount Taygetos is the highest mountain in the Peloponnese boasting a height of 2407 meters. Beautiful forests covering the sub-alpine area, gorges, and ravines shaded by plane trees are features of an incredible landscape. Walking the trails of Taygetos, a hiker can witness the geological history of 200 million years. The highest peak of 2407m, a solid limestone forms an almost perfect pyramid considered a sacred place from ancient times. Hiking the highest peak was an important achievement for the ancient Spartans and still is today.

Our hike to the highest peak of 'Prophet Elias' starts from the refuge of the Sparta mountaineering club at 1550m. Reaching the alpine meadows the smell of the fragrant shrubs and wildflowers dominate our senses where most important the endemic herbal tea is dominant. On our way, we stop to enjoy the spectacular vistas the mountain generously offers. We continue uphill to the so-called ''Portes'' meaning gates, a split of the ridge that marks our entry into the final part of our hike to the summit. Soon we will be walking the so-called ''immortal ridge''. A few more steps and we touch the summit plateau ''conquering'' the highest peak of the mountain at 2407m. The view from the top is breathtaking to all corners of the horizon. After tasting a delicious picnic that will get our batteries charged, we take the way back.
