Perachora Village – Lake Vouliagmeni Path
At the western end of the mountain of Gerania there is a path with a wonderful view waiting to be explored.
It starts from the village of Perachora and heads west towards Lake Vouliagmeni and the archaeological site of Heraion.
Almost all the way north and south of Gerania we see the Corinthian Gulf and also the Alkyonides islands. Halfway down the road, we come across a unique view of Lake Vouliagmeni, the channel that connects it with the sea and the lighthouse of Heraion.
The route goes through forests of pines of various ages as well as olive groves. The visitor has the opportunity to admire the local flora while during the spring the colors create a wonderful setting.
The path is characterized as easy but good physical condition is required.
Its length is about 10.5 km and it takes 3.5 – 4.5 hours to finish it.
The altitude differences are small with a maximum height of 460m and its end being right by the sea.
Upon finishing the path we can visit the archaeological site of Heraion and the Melagavi Lighthouse.
Hiking shoes are essential.
