Excursion to Kalavrita-Ski in Helmos
This picturesque mountain town in Achaia, located 189 km from Athens, is ideal for a one day excursion from the country's capital. Kalavrita is a great choice for both winter and summer and, as such, has developed into one of the most popular tourist destinations in Greece.
Built at an altitude of 756 meters, under the "shadow" of Helmos mountain, Kalavrita is the base for nature lovers as well as for trips to the ski resort. Strolling along 25th Martiou Street, wandering around the shops selling local products, sitting back in cozy cafes and eating at traditional taverns are some of the must dos during your stay here.
The Kalavrita Municipal Museum of the Holocaust, the Paleologina's Mansion and Agia Lavra Monastery (5 km south west of Kalavrita) are must sees.
Make sure you fit a ride on the famous Vouraikos cog train and a trip to the renowned ski resort of Kalavrita for adventures in nature into your program.
