Hiking Tour from the Mountain to the Sea
Learn all about the unique flora, fauna, geology, and history from our knowledgeable, professional guides.
Our hiking tour route starts from the mountainous village of Arna (alt.470 m) with important history back to the 14th century The "arvanitika" language remains in use in the region today although it is spoken by few. The path runs through fertile ravines, old abandoned farmhouses, crosses the slopes of "Arna", meets forests of oak trees, planes, chestnut and walnut trees, as we descend to Remata.
The location of the village Remata is one of the greenest on the island with rich vegetation, running water from the river of Arni. In the green stream old farmhouses, stoned grape mills, threshing floors are hiding, but even stalactites and stalagmites over the river bed. The scenery changes and getting wild with dense low vegetation, as we descend the path towards the beautiful unspoiled beach of Lefka crossing the river surrounded by reeds. We rest , we swim and we are having a light pic nic. We continue our hike towards the north coastline, walking on an impressive strange rocky terrain "embroidered¨ from the saltiness and the north wind to end at Ateni Beach with a fresh swim and rest at the beach
