Kyfanta Walking Holidays

Kyparissi, GreeceKyfanta Hotel offers a one-week walking holiday during March, April, May, June, September and October for €600 per person, including transport to Kiparissi, meals and accommodation.

The guided walks take you on the mountains paths around Kiparissi, an Aegean coastal village in Lakonia, southeast Peloponnese. This is a unique experience in one of Europe’s great wildernesses.

Kiparissi lies in a bay surrounded by mountains and high plains. The walks follow old paths established by former mountain dwellers. The scenery is spectacular, the wildflowers abundant.
