Begin today with a transfer to the start of the kalderimi (paved stone mule path). Upon arrival descend on this ancient path through a beech forest and then on the alternate tarmac and kalderimi paths until you reach the picturesque village of Kissos. After a lunch break in a local taverna continue on a pretty track to Mouresi village and then descend to the Aegean coast and arrive in the small and quaint resort of Agios Ioannis. Take an evening stroll on the long beach that is covered in white stones that resemble pearls.

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

 In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
