This route is a small trek to the place and traditions of outer Mani, where every stone has its own history. Here, the magnificence of the mountainous nature is harmoniously combined with the allure of the sea, as gigantic mount Taygetos is so close from the embrace of the Mediterranean.

Our tour starts from the fortified tower houses of old Kardamili, as we follow the path that was once part of the ancient so called ‘’royal road’,’ connecting Kardamili with Sparta. Along the way we visit some of the traditional, beautiful little villages of the region, walk through their narrow streets as we learn about their past. In a small distance ahead, mount Taygetos stands snowed in some of its highest peaks.

A small break for a healthy picnic with traditional local delicacies gives us additional supply of energy, as a burst of colors and fragrances from flowers and herbs overwhelms us and brings us even closer to the natural environment. We walk through an easy route, sometimes a stone-built path and sometimes a shady pathway, immersed in olive trees, pines and cypress trees. Along the way we will discover all those scents and images that make up the scenery of Mani, narrate its past and lifestyle of Mani inhabitants throughout time.
