Activity Description

The Western Mani has four gorges, and the Rintomo Gorge is definitely the most impressive! The Rintomo Gorge starts from the slopes of Mount Taygetos, descends towards the Messinian Gulf, and ends at the Santova beach, forming a natural border. During our hike, you will be amazed by the rich geological features of the gorge, with visible layering of the rocks and the abundant, vibrant colors of the formations, which blend perfectly with the enchanting green landscape.

Exploring the Rintomo Gorge is an internal, almost mystical experience that is difficult to describe in words. The adventure begins after a 30-minute drive from Kardamyli to the village of Voreio, which is the starting point of our hike. We descend on foot to reach the riverbed and enter a land inhabited by Nereids, mythical water nymphs!

Adventure enthusiasts and lovers of vivid colors will understand that the magical atmosphere of the Rintomo Gorge, combined with the wild natural beauty of the landscape, is something not to be missed!

Is it suitable for me?

While this may not be an extreme hike, trekking in a gorge like Rintomo is always a challenge. You should be in reasonably good physical condition to be able to walk continuously for a few hours and be prepared to climb in certain parts of the trail.
