Botanical Tour in Mani – Half day excursion

From: 45.00 

Category: Tag:
All about the Botanical Tour in Mani – Half day excursion.

A half day trek to explore the diversity of the amazing flora found in the Mani Peninsula. The route will be a circular one starting from the village of Proastio a short distance inland from Kardamyli.

The excursion will take us out past the Monastery of St. George and then down into a small gorge where there are numerous different orchid species to be found. We will have the necessary breaks so we can take nice pictures of the plants and Ι will be more than glad to offer you my assistance and knowledge.

Climbing gently out of the gorge the walk takes us through olive groves towards the village of Petrovouni. The first part of the return follows the same route but then takes an alternative loop back to the Monastery in Proastio village.
