One-day escape to one of the most beautiful natural sights of our country, a unique route through the Vouraikos River, crossed by the Diakopto – Kalavrita Cog railway station.
In 10 enjoyable kilometers through the Vouraikos River Gorge which is full of amazing sights, we will arrive at Diakopto for lunch.
Our excursion will begin with a short visit to the Great Cave Monastery, a historic monastery of Kalavrita, built in the opening of a large natural cave of Helmos, over the rushing bridge of the Vouraikos river at an altitude of 940 meters.
Then, from the Great Cave with a small hike on a 2km path we will reach the picturesque village of Kato Zachlorou. There is the station of Odontos “Mega Cave” and from that point we will start our hike along the train lines to Diakopto. This particular route through the Vouraikos Gorge is the most beautiful part of our hike and a part of the E4 European path.
Wildlife landscapes dominate, unrivaled waterfalls, rocks sculpted from the water in extraordinary shapes and aerial bridges. All these make a unique natural setting up and mark our trip as unforgettable.
