The target is to reach ‘‘ St. Peter ’’chapel in Mola recreation area after passing near ‘‘ Orneo peak ’’, second highest on Mt. Parnitha at 1.350 m. It’s level of difficulty is hard because of the snowed terrain and despite the limited, up to 200 m, height difference.

  • SCHINIAS, Cynosoura peninsula and the wetlands

    SCHINIAS, Cynosoura peninsula and the wetlands

    On Saturday the 11th of November at 11:00 a.m., SAS organize a combination of walk and relax … hiking in Schinias’ National Park. The walk will take place through a dense Pine forest on a sandy path-net, thick in parts, parallel to the seashore, the only forest in Attica with stone pines, which called locally ‘‘ Dasos Koukounarias ’’.

    At the end of the forest extends the Cynosoura Peninsula with the strangest shape of land we’ll have ever seen. It’s like the tail of a lizard that tries to escape from the dip waters or it looks like a snake that is ready to … dip into the blue crystal waters !! From the highest point, 92 m … above sea level, there is a unique view to the surrounding coasts and islets. Drakonera hill is high above the peninsula across it. Will not … visit this last hill ! Duration of this walk will be 4 hours approximately, total distance covered will be 12 km again approximately and because the terrain is mostly flat with no significant height differences, the difficulty could be considered as medium !

    Taverna ‘‘ The Paradise ’’ is waiting for us, 20 minutes before the end of the walk for a real … heavenly meal !

    Meeting point is at ‘‘ Moraitis beach club ’’, 210 Posidonos avenue, where we could take a … slow-drinking morning coffee under the shadow of Palm trees and the sounds of Alexandros’ jazz music … !

    Big surprise : We are happy to announce that something unusually pleasant will take place in this walk. Evangelia Marougka, a recently registered member of SAS, will help us … double to relax, introducing us in the Sensorial Movement method Danis Bois, just before the beginning, also during the walk and why not after the big meal .. !
