Crossing its gorgeous ridge with stunning views. A classic mountaineering excursion, one of the best of its kind in Greece, of high aesthetics. Mount Taygetos is the highest mountain of the Peloponnese with a height of 2407 m and certainly one of the most impressive and interesting mountains in Greece. It forms a very long ridge on the north – south axis, which starts from Arcadia and ends in the area of Mani. This ridge also defines the border between Laconia and Messinia. The mountain slopes fall sharply in the east into the Sparta plain, while the elevation towards the Messinian west side is more complex and has many deep ravines. This crossing can be chosen from different starting points and altitude meters. Max height in the ascent is 2000m. Only for experienced hikers.

Price start from € 280,00 per person for minimum 6 persons for 3 days/2 nights.

The price depends on the number of the days , the number of participants, activity, duration and transfer.

For excact or less or more participants please contact us in order to offer you flexible rates.

Weather Information :
Weather Information :

Greece in general has warm and humid summers lasting from May till October. In May and October weather can be less predictable with some rain and chilly temperatures being possible especially in the Greek mainland. Greek summers are generally hot, with temperatures rarely getting lower than 25 degrees Celsius in most of our destinations, while temperatures of over 40 degrees Celsius during the day are not unheard of in July and August. In the open sea, weather can be tough to predict all year round, but in the summer the seas are generally calm and ideal for sailing. Generally, cool temperatures and occasional rainfalls occur especially at night, especially in the mountains, a fact that you have to take into account when packing for your adventure.
