Small tours around Sykia
The Vouraikos Gorge
This gorge is famous for the little train that traverses it, climbing up the mountain from the seaside village of Diakopto to the mountain village of Kalavryta. The views from the train are splendid, as it zigzags between the mountains and rocks, next to the small but turbulent Vouraikos river.
Fonissa is a stream that forms a deep gorge from Vrysoules village to Loutro, in the municipality of Xylokatsro-Evrostini. The name “fonissa” (female murderer) highlights how dangerous it is to be in its way when it is full of water. It consists of a small yet impressive gorge that offers a trekking route of 10km.
