All that’s required after that is the right kind of footwear and the mood to get straight into action!
Keeping in step with nature
The incomparable natural environment of the land of Discovery is ideal for hiking enthusiasts who want to get better acquainted with the generous wealth and astonishing beauty of Greek nature. The footpaths of Mountainous Nafpaktia, crossing a great expanse of oak, chestnut and fir tree forest, lead you to some truly incredible sights. The mountain range of Panaitoliko and the ridge of Mt Arakynthos, two Natura accredited areas, will seduce you with their lush vegetation and sweeping views. Go trekking to the twin waterfalls of Mokistianos or wander around Lesini forest, west of Acheloos, to admire the rare ash trees and the impressive silver poplars. In Klokova, challenging climbs beckon the bold mountaineers while in Varasova, the rock face certainly gives absilers plenty of opportunity to test their skills. Then again, if mountain biking is your thing, Trikorfo and the mountain villages west of Panaitoliko are just the location for making memories on two wheels.
Taming the waters
Gorgeous lake Trichonida, incorporated into the European Natura 2000 programme, will carry you off on a tide of enthusiasm for sailing. For those who fancy themselves as more adroit on a pair of water skis, Stratos lake with the National Centre and world class trainers is a tempting option.
