Hike to Pan’s cave
Aug 2021 • Family
I enjoyed everything about this tour- the drive up into the mountains, the views during the hike to Pan’s cave, exploring inside Pan’s cave, and the delicious tea and snacks that Hilda, our guide, prepared for us. Hilda’s knowledge about the mythology and current stories about the region made the tour even more memorable. This off the beaten track tour is totally worth it!!

Must do in Delphe/Arachova
Amazing tour on the Mount Parnas, Hélène has an extensive knowledge combining nature and mythology. Splendid site, the hike is relatively easy, but just hard enough to have a real effort that makes you conclude proudly : we did it ! The view is gorgeous, what else ? Definitely a must do. For us the tour was in French as Helene is bi-cultural. Perfect.
