A romantic setting to fall in love with, holidays to Kalavryta provide a calm adventure of cultural and historical significance, a town which is embedded into the slopes of Mount Helmos paints the picture of a postcard-perfect world, engrossed within nature’s finest masterpiece. One of Greece’s better winter destinations, you’ll feel right at home if you want to get back in touch with mother nature during your time away, whether it be sauntering through shrub-laden lands or traversing through the trees on a rail trip across the wilderness, you’ll find Kalavryta is a more than fitting location to suit your needs.
The Trademark Train
Perhaps the best way to enjoy the surroundings during your Kalavryta holidays is to take the rack and pinion railway through the maze of forests and woodland which decorate the views in all directions. It’s like entering another world as you wind along the curving track, taking in time-forgotten sights and the vibrantly green vegetation that contribute to the tranquil and serene atmosphere, helping you to unwind and de-stress. In the northern part of the Peloponnese you will find a number of must-see attractions, such as the Cave of Lakes, a mysterious natural artwork of varicoloured chambers and catacombs which also showcase impressive stalactite formations. You’ll also come across the Kalavryta Ski Centre, a great location if you fancy taking to the slopes to get your heart pumping while enjoying your holidays in Kalavryta, but if you want to trade in the snowy pureness of white hills, you can always travel in the summer to sunbathe along the beautiful beaches of Xylokastro.
