You shouldn't ask comments for Taygetos. Taygetos is more than a think to do. It is the ultimate destination for everybody. I accede.

The drive through the Taygetus mountains is stunning with lots of hairpin bends to add interest. We stopped twice once for coffee at the top at a tavern 2,400m high then for an amazing traditional Greek lunch on the way down which was fantastic.

The road is fine over the mountain route from Sparta to Kalamata and so can be taken steadily even if you are unused to hill driving. Locals will pass when you move in as usual in Greece towards the side of the road. Excellent views...More

This hike is exceptional in spring with the path leading up through a pine forest with glorious bird song and the delicate wildflowers such as cyclamen, crocus and primrose just emerging. The trailhead was a challenge to find because we could not read the Greek...More
