Arrival in Dimitsana

Today you’ll arrive in the scenic village of Dimitsana. Located in the middle of the mountains, it is as traditional as you would hope to find here. Little has changed in recent decades and you will find traditional stone houses and picturesque alleys. Check into your picturesque mountain lodge, where the rooms are spacious and after a long day of walking, you can relax by the fireplace and relax with a glass of tsipouro.

Hiking through the green canyon

After a hearty breakfast and picking up some snacks from the local baker, you will head to the Lousios gorge, passing over old bridges and along a fast-flowing river, encountering different monasteries along the way. Look out for the resident monks who will be more than happy to welcome you with water and loukoumi (Turkish delight). We will provide you with a walking route (via an app) with useful tips for start and end points.
