The Menalon Trail in Arcadia, in the Peloponnese. It doesn't get much more Greek. Sure, islands like Crete and Corfu are stunning for their perfect combination of mountain and sea, but the 'real' Greece can be found on foot deep in Greece's interior. Churches and monasteries, thousand-year-old donkey trails and watering holes, quiet villages and a small glass of ouzo to end the day. Forget the mileage and the athletic challenge: on the Menalon Trail, you take it easy in the Greek way.
Take it easy, that was always the idea behind the development of the Menalon Trail. Here you step in the footsteps of Ioannis Lagos and all the other Greeks who call the ancient paths of the Menalon Trail home. Ioannis had the excellent idea to give the trails, which were there anyway, a name in order to introduce people like you to the nature and, above all, the culture of his region. The result is 75 kilometres of 4- or 6-stage hiking pleasure: the Menalon Trail, one of the most beautiful hiking trails in Europe.
