We decided to take the old mountain road from Sparta to Kalamata, and, although it took more time, we thoroughly enjoyed the drive - lovely scenery and open vistas on the western side, no cars, nature at it's best. At the beginning of the uphill...More

We took the old mountain road between Kalamtaa and Sparti around 15 October 2018, there were two cars we saw driving west and just us driving east. Compared to how the traffic used to be, it's a pleasure. Beautiful, beautiful scenery. On the western side...More

It’s only 55km between Kalamata and Sparta, but through this mountain road it takes you about 90-100 minutes to cover it. Views are great if the cliffs and woods, all green and also with nice winds to calm the heat.

Beautiful drive through and over the mountains. Lovely vistas around every turn. Be sure to gas up and bring water, not much in between. Slow go because of the many twists and turns but totally worth the effort.

I took this hike with a local guide from the south (Agios Dimitrios-Spanakaki ridge- summit Mount Taygetos). The first part of the tour leads through the beautiful Vasiliki forest with black spruces. After an alpine meadow the more difficult part starts, the views from ridge...More

The park's not only ideal for nature-lovers (rare plants, eagles....) and people who enjoy walking (masses of trails - you can walk all the way down into the Mani if you want), but also for gourmets (there are plenty of little tavernas - I had...More

Going up with family who had previously completed the climb, it took three hours up and just over two back down. A very enjoyable yet difficult day, the paths are easily distinguishable but tricky at times. The last 200 meters was the hardest part, where...More
