It seemed most of the interesting sites are in the lower half of the Gorge. So we parked our car in the small lot at “Ancient Gorthys” to begin. There are many variations to this hike, but we decided to hike in a few miles...More

You really can't get lost walking this trail in the Lousios Gorge, but being cautious adults, we talked a silversmith from Stemistra into accompanying us for the day's hike. It wasn't easy hiking, but not the most difficult we have done either. However, by the...More

You can start the full hike at either Dimitsana (going down) or Stemnitsa (going up). You can also start at or take a detour to Ancient Gortys, via the "Fulling Holes" (part of cloth making) for the Prodromos Monastery. That monastery is fabulous, like something...More

The Louisios Gorge is well worth a visit whatever time of year. It is popular with walkers in the cooler months, but we opted to drive to various spots as it was so hot. We parked and walked about 1km to Prodromos Monastery which is...More

We did a beautiful hike in the Lousios Gorge from Prodromou Monastery via the Philosopher's Monastery to Dimitsana. We found a taxi at Dimitsana and for 20 euros it took us to the Prodromou Monastery where we started our hike. It was very nice Rio...More

We spent a lovely day hiking in the gorge. We parked our car at the Water Power Museum and took a taxi (who we meet at Dimitsana) to the Prodromou Monastery from where we walked back to the Water Power Museum. The trail is very...More

Travelling across the Pelopponese in our motorhome westward from Naplio we cross into the Lousios Valley. Our first stop is the mountain village at Dimitsana. There are a number of little bars and restaurants lining the main road through the village, it's well worth an...More
