Combine your favorite hobby in the beautiful region of Corinthia with accommodation, excursions and many other activities. Get your adrenaline pumping by reaching the highest peak of the climbing field of “Tarsos”.
Tarsos is a new climbing field located near the village of Kato Tarsos on the plateau of Feneos, Corinthia. The area is also known as the Virgin of the Rocks, named after the impressive chapel built on the hill.
Starting the route from the village of Kato Tarsos a unique natural beauty awaits, with the impressive view of the mountain of Great Zireia. Arriving at the climbing area, you will find that a beautiful location, with large plane and fir trees, cold running waters and lovely green meadows.
A cluster of vertical rocks, almost smooth, with vertical irregular slits, awaits to remind you a little of the magic of the most famous rocks of Greece “Meteora”, as, due to the shape and the composition of the rocks, many call it “Meteora of the Peloponnese”.
The routes are relatively new and well secured. They are densely secured with large plugs with the use of resins. As the routes are still new the use of a helmet is necessary.
While gazing at the big rocks, a big slit will catch your eye. It is a cave, which, during the German Occupation, was used as a refuge by English paratroopers, who functioned as liaisons with the Greek rebels.
There are five fields in the area with enough tracks for every taste. In the photos you will see some of them.
