The area around Vamos and Apokoronas is a great place to discover on foot! If you stay in Vamos, you should definitely take a walk in the countryside.With George as your guide, you will “travel through time” in a country walk full of beautiful nature and local history : Byzantine wells, the folklore museum, old churches and chapels, the small gorge that connected the traditional villages Gavalochori, Douliana in the old days and other interesting places.

Lovely walks, mostly off road following small paths. So much you see that can never be seen from a car...do it!

We loved the variety of walks offered in a series of booklets, and enjoyed the countryside so much more walking. There were unexpected views, sleepy villages, quiet valleys and busy beach areas. All in one walk!

I went on this walk with my 82 year old mother and really enjoyed it. It was along paved roads for most of it, with some walking on rougher, steeper areas. I think as long as you have reasonable shoes and are mobile anyone can...More
