Expansive views, towering trees, and dramatic geology are just some of the astounding features of this tour in Atticas largest national park.

Ancient Greeks believed that the cloven-hoof god Pan used to come here to play his flute and dance in the forest!

We start our journey by picking up from a main metro station. Sit back and relax the 40m driving to the mountains.

Our trekking adventure begins from a gorgeous canyon. Be ready to jump over small rivers, scramble on rocks and bend under trees' branches. You have to see to believe that a so rich forest exists so close to the city center!

We make many stops for photos & refreshing. We'll recognize pines, black firs, wild berries and local herbs among others. This period is quite possible to spot many different types of mushrooms!

Our main stop will be at an alpine-style mountain shelter offering a big veranda with impressive 360o views, lounges with fireplaces and delicious traditional cuisine.

After our main stop, we'll hike towards another peak. The landscape here changes, it's mainly rocky with small bushes where we occasionally spot red deers grazing!

We take the funicular, pose for our last photos, and return back to our base.

The whole trek (~10km,+700m) has a moderate difficulty, crosses various terrains and offers scenic views to Athens and Saronic gulf islands!

Hello everyone, my name is Fotis!

"My mission is to support people to transform from tourists to adventure travelers"

After spending 13years building a career in finance, switching from my laptop to meeting rooms, I quit my job and founded "experience-eco" small group adventures!

Why? Because I decided to follow my passion for unconventional and off-the-beaten path travel as well as helping wild animals.

I love taking people to unique and interesting places to experience nature, history, and wildlife. I try and make all my experiences as different and exciting as I can, hoping the adventurer will enjoy the experience as much as I enjoyed creating it!

Most recently I’ve been to Mexico, Philippines, Brazil, South Africa,Japan that helped me bring fresh ideas to my experiences – that was just early last year..shall I carry on?

Such an amazing experience. It was my first time in Athens and hiking Parnitha National park was on the top of my list so to be able to do that along with an experienced guide was a dream! Fotis was very knowledgable about the park, the wildlife and the difference kind of flaura!I would definitely recommend this experience! It was also so lovely to meet some wild deers at the end and I made some new friends which was a bonus!

Es war eine wunderbare Wanderung durch verschiedene Zonen des Nationalparks mit vielen guten Aussichtspunkten und Entdeckungen in einem artenreichen und naturbelassenem Lebensraum. Wer Interesse an ursprünglicher Natur der Region hat wird nicht enttäuscht! Eine gewisse Grundfitness sollte jedoch vorliegen, da der Aufstieg von ca. 700 m Höhenmetern bewältigt wird. Fotis macht aber kein Sportevent aus dem Trip und pausiert so oft es die Teilnehmer wünschen, auch das Tempo dürfen diese bestimmen. Für uns war es eines der Highlights des Urlaubes und gehörte auf jeden Fall zu einem runden Bild von Athen. Vielen Dank, Fotis.

The hike was beautiful and just the right amount of time. We loved to hike and getting out of the city was perfect. Fotis was very accommodating and even dropped us off at a scooter rental place which was very helpful. He even gave us some great recommendations of other places to check out while we are here. Defiantly would recommend to others wanting a medium level hike.

Als je houdt van hiken onder begeleiding, dan is dit voor jou! Ideaal als je alleen en zonder auto reist! De wandeling eindigt bij een hut zoals in Oostenrijk!

Треккинг в целом понравился. Подкачала немного погода, почти всегда моросил дождь. Местами тропа была очень живописной. Если есть время в Афинах, то можно его провести прогулявшись в горах.
