Nature

The Peloponnese has much to offer for every tourist. You will find vast deciduous forests with fast-flowing streams and Arcadian landscapes with magnificent views. Walks are in all types and sizes. For the casual walker, there are slight tours of a few hours, but for the real die hard it is possible to make day trips with lots of climbing and scrambling.

There are not many marked hiking tours on the Peloponnese, so a guide, a good map and a compass are always required (in addition to water and sun cream).

Hiking & Photography

Walking is really the best thing to do because you're about to see much more of the beautiful nature and culture. And of course the Peloponnesian countryside, the villages and their welcoming inhabitants are extremely suitable subjects for the photographer.

 

You can revoke the nature or visit one of the islands in the area (such as the beautiful and pedestrian Hydra, Spetses and Poros). But the cities of Argos and Nafplion also offer excellent opportunities for a nice photo safari.

Beach & Birding

The eastern side of the Peloponnese offers beautiful pebble beaches with crystal clear water. In Nafplion is a large sandy beach (Karathona Beach) with sun beds and umbrellas.

Between Nafplio and Nea Kios is an area where you can take both a mud bath (as thalassotherapy) and you can spot many birds. Stilt, little egret and sandpiper, but also pelicans and kingfishers to name but a few.

In the neighborhood we have also spotted the hop and even a snake eagle.

Another beautiful bird habitats can be found in the vicinity of Astros and the mythical Stymfalic more.
