Exochori to Kardamyli

Exochori to Kardamyli : This walk starts in Exochori, dropping down to Kardamyli on the route marked with red/white paint blazes. Much of the route follows kalderimi (stone-paved paths built for livestock), some in excellent shape and others quite rough. Kardamyli’s a nice place to take refreshment before beginning the long climb back up. The route passes the 17th Century Mourtzinos Tower, which has been restored and is worth a stop. It then follows the route marked with black/yellow paint blazes to Agia Sofia church, and then switches to the route marked with white-on-red crosses to Exochori.

From Bonnie’s Place

From Bonnies : Circular walk of about 2 hours starting at Bonnies Place Proastio, walking through the olives groves via the little church to Petrovouni . Walk through the small hamlet of Petrovouni via the cobbled street and then down the old mule path, the views of the Kardamyli coastline are stunning . When you reach Kardamyli there are plenty of place to eat and drink , maybe go for a swim of the jetty at Harilos or a little further walk  down to Ritsa Beach. After a short or long rest you can walk via Kalimitsi up the Proastio mountain track which will bring you back into the village of Proastio.. Great Walk  Stunning Views 

Spoilt for Choice

Spoilt for Choice:  Another extraordinary hiking trail can be found in the gorgeous region of Mani in the prefecture of Messinia. Right in the center of Mani, at the west front of Mount Taygetus, lies the imposing gorge of Viros, that stretches across no less than 19 km and reaches an imposing altitude of 1400 meters. Starting from the village of Agios Panteleimon and ending in the bay of Kardamyli, the trail passes through lusciously vegetated landscapes full of walnut, cedar, cypress, fir, and black pine trees that overlook the endless blue of the Aegean Sea.
