Arcadia & the menalon

Greece Arcadia village Dimitsana

Represented in the Greek and Roman mythology as an earthly paradise, a utopia, Arcadia is in the center of the Peloponnese. This depiction is not far from what the visitor encounters today in the part spreading on Mount Menalon, a hospitable fir mountain full of legends, home to God Pan of woods, fields, and flocks, and the dryads, nymphs and other spirits. Menalon is flowed by river Ladon, who spills into a big artificial lake, river Alphios and river Lousios, in the center, which hosts the highest habitat diversity and human activities.

In this mountain, you will be given the chance to experience hiking with kids in the simplest and most family friendly trails of the Menalon, that MAMAKITA team has tested with kids. Among fir trees, rivers and streams, watermills, stone bridges, small waterfalls and accessible gorges, you will have the opportunity not only to hike and picnic in nature, but also to come across villages, monasteries, traces of the human heritage and to get to know the Greek ancient and modern history.
