About
Just a breath from Kalamata stands mount Kalathi, a mountain visible from any side of the city. You can see it sometimes clear, sometimes lost in the clouds. It is very rare for a mountain of such height to be sited so close to the sea and the city. On its slopes picturesque villages smothered in green and even higher on its summit, forests of fir and pine trees and a stunning view to the Messinian Bay and the city of Kalamata.We begin our hiking trip from the cosmopolitan suburb of Kalamata the village of Kato Verga by following the cobbled path ascending west to the village of Ano Verga. A historic village perched on the mountainside with a plethora of old stone houses, narrow alleys and springs with crystal waters.

Great fun!!
Sep 2020 • Couples
Trifonas was an amazing instructor and guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful in giving us the basics of how to Kayak.

He allowed us to enjoy the experience on our own whilst being there to support and engage with us when needed. A truly cheerful guy, Trif made us laugh constantly and took us to some beautiful little beaches.

The feeling of solitude whilst being out at sea1 was amazing. I'd definitely recommend this excursion if you're in the area.

Hiking the Biliovo cobble path
Jun 2018 • Family
What a fantastic experience. Our guide Fotis was remarkable. While on our hike Fotis took the time to talk with my family about the history of the area, as well as the efforts to conserve its beauty and the historical significance of the cobble path. Our hike concluded with a nice picnic near the ruins of a monastery. Truly a class A individual and Class A experience. We highly recommend spending time with Fotis and Explore Messinia.

George thank you for your kind words, hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Greece. It was a plesure spending some time together with your adorable family and also the little research for your last name that gave me a little bit of extra knowledge for my beloved region the Mani. Hope to meet again in the future.
