Activity Description

West Mani has four gorges and Ridomo is for sure the most spectacular! Ridomo Gorge starts from the Taygetos ridgeline and fades into the Messinian Bay running all the way down to Sadova beach, forming a natural boundary of the western Mani. During our hike you will be more than impressed by the rich geologic features of the gorge, with its evident stratification of rocks, its burst of intense rock color palette, being in perfect match with its splendid greenery.

This is an esoteric, almost mystical experience that we can hardly put into words. The adventure starts with a 30-minute drive with our vehicle from Kardamili, all the way up to Vorio village, where the hiking part starts. We walk downhill to reach the riverbed, entering a land of fairies!

Lovers of adventure and vibrant colors will find that Ridomo’s spirited ambience and rich landscape are not to be missed!

Is it right for me?

This is not an extreme hike, but hiking in a gorge like Ridomo can still provide a challenge. You should be fit enough to walk for a few hours at a time and be ready to climb up in some parts of the route.

It is a great tour for individual, solo travelers, families with older teens, as well as small groups or couples. If you’re not sure about your level of fitness and suitability to this trip, just get in touch and we’ll be happy to talk it through with you
