Walk in Nature
The area surrounding Kyniska Palace is ideal for beautiful walks in nature. Enjoy beautiful scenery and walk through valleys, fruit trees, wild flowers & Greek herbs on the foothills of mount Taygetos.
For Hiking lovers there is the European hiking path E4 which passes through a large part of Laconia starting at Agios Petros -- Karyes - Vresthena - Theologos - Sparta - Mystras - Faneromeni Monastery - Anavryti - Laccomata - Taygetos Shelter - Pentavlou - AgiosDimitrios - Arna - Agia Marina - PanagiaGiatrissa - Kastania and ends in Gythio.
We suggest to following the route beginning close to the hotel at Mystras and passing through the Monastery of Faneromeni - Anavryti and Laccomata.
Crossing the gorge of Lagada, we reach the Monastery of Faneromeni and then Anavryti, at a higher altitude of 790 meters. This route lasts about 2 and half hours. From here, through an amazingly beautiful path that crosses cultivated lands and mountainous forests, head to Laccomata at an altitude of 1280 meters. A hiking information center is also located here. This part lasts 2 hours and 45 minutes.
