Description

This is an excellent route to escape Athens in private and discover the west part of Attica in a premium seven seated off-road vehicle. Mount Geraneia, one of the most outstanding mountain ranges of Peloponnese, is embraced by three gulfs – the Saronian Gulf, the Corinthian Gulf and the Gulf of Alkyonides. It offers an amazing off-road route with panoramic view on the gulfs of Corinth and Saronicos, as well as on all the surrounding mountains. Small plateaus with pine and fir trees, chapels and historic monasteries, uncharted routes through rich fauna and vegetation that lead to the sunken lake of “Vouliagmeni” offer a unique private escape in West Athens.

Our day starts after we pick you up from your hotel or a point close to the indicated hotel if car access is not possible, and we will follow the national road heading west by the Saronic golf and towards Corinth. At Megara village we leave the national road and heading onwards to the foot of Geraneia Mountain where our adventure route will start. Driving through lush vegetation (fir & plane trees, oak and myrtle trees, pine trees) and wild animals (like jackals, foxes, cranes, eagles), lots of natural springs with crystal water and numerous monasteries we reach the Monastery of Holy Mary in Parthi, one of the oldest in Peloponnese, for a short refreshing  stop. Continuing our adventure route through the peaks of Geraneia Mountain in a premium seven seated off-road vehicle we admire the panoramic view of Vouliagmeni Lake and Loutraki from above. Crossing traditional villages we are going to visit a traditional Greek tavern where we will be welcomed by the owner. He will introduce us to the Greek Mediterranean cuisine and heartfelt Hellenic hospitality with plenty of local food and wine.

After lunch we follow the route to Lake Vouliagmeni for a short walk and photos. Just before the way back to Athens we will pass by the Corinth Canal that separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland and also connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. An amazing photo opportunity just before we head back in Athens.

A unique premium backcountry day escape, an exciting adventure to embrace the renowned Greek hospitality, enjoy the sights and professional yet relaxed service!!!
