Extreme Argolis

November 9th 2019 Extreme Argolis

Stretch your limits in the refreshing environment of Argolis as you enjoy the most exciting experiences the area has to offer! Let Perivoli Country Hotel & Retreat be your launch pad to adventure and discover the outdoors in a whole new light with a range of extreme sports and activities this autumn.

Kayaking along this radiant shoreline is a truly fulfilling way to spend a day on vacation! Begin at Porto Cheli, near the small town of Kranidi. From this new vantage point among the waves, the unspoilt wilderness of the coast finally lays within reach, via a tour of stunning destinations unreachable by land. In tiny coves, find hidden beaches and caves surrounded by shady pines, some of which grow enigmatically out of the cliffside; these can only be admired from a kayak's unique position in the Aegean sea. 

After experiencing Argolis from below, see it from above on a thrilling rock climbing expedition. Nafplio's crags are poised dramatically above the waves, but the solid limestone they are made of provides a steady foothold and the area's mild climate makes this a great place to be during those cooler months of the year. Those who would like to take in panoramic views from a higher altitude can do so at Didima, a mountainous crag less than an hour's drive from Perivoli Country Hotel & Retreat. This area is 1,100 meters above sea level, so it remains blissfully cool in the summer months and is always shady during the afternoon hours. It's also equipped with more than 70 routes, with varied levels of difficulty; there are routes for beginners, seasoned climbers, and even family expeditions. 

Merely an hour and twenty minutes away from the hotel is the region of Arcadia, where white water rafting is the absolute unmissable activity. Its breathtaking Lousios River passes through a steep gorge and glides past lush scenery, majestic waterfalls and quaint stone bridges. Once there, lessons (as well as equipment) will be provided so that even beginners can join in on the fun, and an instructor will be present in each raft to ensure a safe journey. 

Finally, don't miss your opportunity to paraglide over the wilderness of the Peloponnese. With your starting point at Mount Arachneo under an hour away from Perivoli Country Hotel & Retreat, and certified instructors to guide you every step of the way, enjoy the mythical views of Epidaurus and its surrounding coastline from an astounding vantage point in the clouds.

All you need to bring is courage and excitement; necessary equipment can be rented on-site. Argolis is an amazing place, truly worth this once in a lifetime experience!
