After a long and rainy winter, the hiking season is back! For our first walking tour we visited the gorge of Vouraikos or Voraikos which is located in the north side of Peloponesse, 63 km from Patras and 170 km from Athens. This hike is part of the European path E-4 and it coincides with the track of Odontotos, the railway with the toothed rack rail that connects Diakofto (Diakopto) with Kalavryta.
I’m not referring to the city of course but to the ferry trip from Greece. For about a year now, the ferry doesn’t dock in Tronchetto but in Fucina. What a pity! Anyway, we’ve got fresh information about the parking possibilities around the “new” Venice port, and a nice spot next to Patras, very convenient for late night arrival.
The recent visit to the camper stop Kalogria made me discover a little corner of Greece that combines nature, sea, archeology and sports activities. Less than 50 kilometers south of Patras, it is definitely a stop worth adding to the itinerary.
