TAYGETUS TRAILS | Saturday 6th May to Saturday 13th 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.



FOUR-DAY trip to the Mani Peninsula to compete in the Taygetus Challenge Marathon, part of a weekend of trail running celebrations that take centre-stage in the little town of Kardamyli for the last weekend of March each year.

The Taygetus Marathon is a 37km mountain race with almost 2200m of ascent over some very technical terrain. The race takes place on Sunday 26th.

You will be running through olive groves, pine forests, following ancient donkey tracks and trails, and boulder-hopping along the vertiginous Vyros Gorge – rising to 800m above sea level into the foothills of the snow-capped Taygetus Mountains.

The race starts on the shores of the Messinian Sea, in the centre of the small town of Kardamyli.

We are providing: Four nights’ fantastic hotel accommodation in Kardamyli with breakfast included. Race entry fee and transfers from Athens.

It’s a 4-day adventure to the most incredible place in Greece with an amazing marathon thrown in for good measure. It’s absolutely unique!
