Walking – Hiking

Exploring Mani on foot can be a great way to explore its natural beauty, at your own pace. Discover hiking trails that passes monuments, kalderimi paths (old donkey trails), gorges and churches, climb to the top of mountains for stunning views, or enjoy a picnic in one of the Mani’s many picnic spots. You can try it by yourself or hire professionals to guide you.
