.A self-guided walking holiday gives you the freedom
to go at your own pace, combined with the security of reliable routes and
professional back up. You can chose the accomodation that suits you and
the number of days you walk. As the holidays are based in Exochori you
have superb walking routes from your door, as well as being within easy
reach of fabulous beaches. Walking Exochori is a collaboration between accomodation providers in the village and a resident walking guide.
Walks Self-guided packages are availble for 3 or 6 days. The
routes range between 2-5 hours and can be tailored to your needs and
abilities. Caroline Herbert is a qualified British walking guide with
many years of experience in this part of Greece. She has designed the
routes to allow you to see the best of the scenery, flowers and villages
as you walk. The terrain is rocky but mostly with clear paths, passing
through olive groves as well as through wild unciltivated areas. The
dramatic Viros Gorge runs from Exochori down to the coast. The old mule
paths, "kalderimi" run between villages and form a network across the
area. Lunch time stops in tavernas, or picnics in unspoilt spots mean
that these routes will give you a real taste of the Mani.
