ABOUT

Sparta, Mt. Taygetus and the Laconian Gulf

A 7-day-trip on an unspoiled part of Peloponnese. Based on an amazing traditional farmhouse-turned luxury guesthouse situated in picturesque Tripi, we will venture out into the formidable Mt. Taygetus. Deep forests and breathtaking views will make all the challenging uphill riding worth a while. Regroup at charming pit-stops such as the beautiful Kastori village.

During the following days you can expect more heavy climbing up the mountains and places such us the notorious Keadas gorge. On our third day, rugged mountains will give way to the seaside roads and fishermen villages of the Laconian Gulf. From the stone tower houses and the vivid farmer’s market of Areopolis to the natural harbor of Gerolimenas and the beautiful promenade of Gytheio.
