Hiking the ancient footpath to Delphi

Family hiking in the midst of the magic of nature and the mystery of ancient temples

Hiking the ancient footpath to Delphi from the slopes of Mt Parnassos in a forested route to the village of Delphi will make you appreciate the unique view on Delphi Sanctuary, the ancient Olive Grove and the Corinthian gulf.

We will start at Livadi plateau at an altitude of 1200m and we will follow the same footpath that took Pan’s worshippers up from the ancient temples of Delphi to the Corycean Grotto to celebrate rites, which is now a part of the E4 European trail.

En route, we will stop for a picnic in a traditional sheep barn, near the cave of Pan. We will descend to Delphi sanctuary overlooking the olive trees valley and the Corinthian Gulf, whilst the mountains of the Peloponnese complete our picturesque scenery.

Please note that this is a hiking tour and no visit or guiding to the Delphi Archaeological Site is included. It can thus be combined with a kid-friendly guided tour to Delphi site and Museum.
