TAYGETUS TRAILS | May 2023

Trail running and hiking through the olive groves and foothills of the Taygetus Mountains. Based in the little town of Kardamyli, in the most idyllic setting between the towering Taygetus Mountains and the clear blue waters of the Messinian Sea. It’s low-key, relaxed and picture-perfect. Greece at its best.
Included in the break are 5 days of guided running/hiking, with a cycle tour midweek to explore the coastline further south. Sea kayaking can be included as an optional extra.

TAYGETUS TRAVERSE | September 2023

A Five day trip to the Mani Peninsula. Included in the trip is a 2-day East-West Traverse of the Taygetus Mountains from Sparta to Kardamyli via the summit of the Profit Ilias. At 2407m, the highest peak in the Peleponnese. We overnight on the eastern side of the Profitis at a mountain refuge, 500m below the summit. We ascend before dawn and reach the summit at sunrise. We descend via the western ridge, to the head of the spectacular Vyros Gorge and follow it back to the coast and Kardamyli, our trail-base. The Taygetus Traverse can be extended to a seven day trip with an additional run, hike or bike day.

NEW FOR 2023

TRAMUNTANA MOUNTAINS – WESTERN MALLORCA

The GR221 Tramuntana Traverse – ‘The Drystone Trail’

A 7-day, 90-mile Challenge, crossing the Tramuntana Mountain range in western Mallorca. Following the spine of the mountains from south to north along the western coast. Overnighting in mountain refuges with bed/breakfast/evening meal and luggage transfers included.
Dormitary accommodation in the mountain refuges, hotel bed and breakfast on the first and last nights of the trip.
An epic journey. Trail running through incredible limestone landscapes dotted with idyllic mountain villages and lofty peaks.

  • *We are now widening our horizons and offering exclusive trail running and hiking adventures along the GR221 – The Drystone Trail – traversing Mallorca’s incredible Tramuntana mountain range.
  • The route takes us on a journey of around 90 miles through a limestone landscape high above the western shoreline, occasionally plunging down to the coast before heading into the hills once more.
  • The Trail visits a myriad of idyllic Mallorcan mountain villages – Esporles, Vallederosa, Deia, and Pollenca. At times the landscape is breathtaking, awe-inspiring, so when it gets this good we stop, and take time-out to take it all in. It’s not a race, but it is a challenge!
  • The Challenge takes us 6 days, with 6 nights accommodation in Mountain Refuges. The accommodation is dormitory-style, it is not luxurious, but it is clean and friendly and finds us in some wonderful off-piste locations. Breakfast and evening meals are included.
  • The GR221 Drystone Trail is not easy, two days will be of marathon distance, and all but the last day will include considerable amounts of ascent. To complete this Challenge you must be physically fit and be capable of running/hiking marathon distances on subsequent days.
