Today you begin by walking to the traditional mountain village of Makrinitsa, which has characterful stone houses with slated roofs. You’ll follow the trail through the maquis shrubland scented with thyme and oregano as you walk to an idyllic church. Ascend through a forest and then via a track towards Portaria, whilst enjoying views over the city of Volos en route. Before reaching Portaria you will enter and walk through a lush green gorge. User

Route ist schlecht ausgezeichnet, bin heute total falsch nach angeblichen Kennzeichen von der Route gelaufen. App hat nicht funktioniert, dort wo man geht gibt es kein Internet und kein Netz.
