    Trip Introduction

    Join us for an exploration of the Flambouritsa, a gorge of great beauty and richness in flora and fauna, which belongs to the Natura 2000 - the largest network of protected areas in the world, offering a haven to Europe's most valuable and threatened species and habitats. Birthplace of Hermes, God of travellers, Flambouritsa is a welcoming terrain with mild water streams gushing by a abundant forest.

    We will head uphill reaching Ntourntouvana, one of the most reknown peaks of the area and we will camp by the lake Doksa at a unique terrain due to the particular geomorphology of the surrounding mountains. The area also is home to the 400 years old monastery of saint George that played an important role during the Greek Revolution against the Ottoman Empire. We will have the chance to visit its premises, talk to the locals and be offered traditional, rose-water tasting, sweets.

    Physical Condition & Experience Requirements

    Dourdouvana trail is not a technical hike but a good stamina is an advance. No prior trekking experience is required; however having done some hikes before will still be an asset. It is recommended for participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases to consult their doctor before any hike.

    DAY1 ButtonHike Flabouritsa gorge -  Doxa lake

    The Gorge of Flambouritsa stands out among the impressive peaks of Little and Big Ziria and is the most lively and intact part of the mountain.Upon arrival we will only have a short time for a snack to boost our energy levels.Today the total hiking time is estimated about 5 hours. We will follow a very nice and interesting route. We will descend very gently to the Flampouritsa gorge and cross it through a beautiful fir forest. After 2 hour of walking we will stop at the heart of Flampouritsa to have a snack next to a river and enjoy the amazing landscape. Afterwards we take the same path to get to the starting point. We will drive towards Doksa lake, our destination for the night.

    Overnight at a nearby village.

    DAY2 Button Hike Dourdouvana Mt - Swim in the sea - Eat in local tavern

    Today we will explore a part of the mountainous Corinth. We will hike Durduvana mountain to a point that offers us a stunning view to Doksa lake. A lake with unparalleled natural beauty at an altitude of 900 meters in Feneos of Corinth, drowned in forests of firs and pines, it is almost reminiscent of a Swiss landscape. The day starts early as we need to leave lake Doksa already by 07.30. This will give us the chance to enjoy the sun rising behind before we take a path that will take us to the top of Ntourntouvana peak. During this 7-8 hour hike we will cover 12 km and an altitude difference of more that 1150 m. We will return to our base at 14.00 to have a snack before heading towards ksilokastro beach, an hour drive away. A relaxing dive in the sea and delicious local food at a nearby traditional tavern is all we need to release the heat and the tiredness of the day. At about 7 we will take the way back to Athens where we expect to arrive at about 21.00
