About
The highest peak of the Peloponnese is on Taygetos at 2407 meters. You can choose between one day trip or two-day trip. We will escort you from the Sparta shelter either for the shorter route or the longer. Starting from the Maganiari spring at 980 meters, where the longer route begins, and on the way to the shelter, by a marked path, we will come across rich fauna and flora which you'll have the chance to photograph. For the shorter route we'll start right outside the shelter, though the mountain's rich flora won't accompany us much longer as the vegetation gradually decreases and the slope into a new rocky environment increases. From the shelter, at the Varvara spot at 1,550 meters, we leave the Laconian side of Taygetos behind us and three hours later, climbing the last few meters of the mysterious 'pyramid' we will meet the roofless chapel of the Prophet Elija. The view of the entire Messinian bay will lie before us.

The safest choice for all levels of hikers
Jan 2019 • Friends
I had the pleasure of meeting both Giorgos Malamas and his team for some educational weekends in a beginner's climbing school. I think it's one of the best choices in Greece. George loves the mountain and the people. He is delighted and has the patience to teach all the participants. What I liked most of the time > he often brought us his personal experiences and how he treated them... If you want to win his sympathy, make him a traditional coffee. (loumidi)

A historical hike that made our holiday.
Sep 2018 • Couples
Picked up at sunrise, we ate breakfast as the mini van took us across Greece. From our resort we made our way Sparta for a bit of statue viewing and then onto to the starting point before beginning the hike. It was great hike with a range of challenges. Aside from the stunning views what made this trip extra special were George and Alex the two tour guides. Their knowledge, enthusiasm and patience was fantastic. They shared historical insights as well as giving advice to improve hiking and mountaineering techniques. Something for everyone and a highlight of the holiday.

We went with two 13yr olds on the climb and later on the ancient messini tour. The climb was a good range of challenges and felt relaxed with the professionalism of the team. 3 guides supporting 6 climbers and sharing their passion. A highlight of the holiday.
