VOLAX- AGAPE PATH HIKING
Volax! A unique landscape all over the world. Huge, round, smooth granite rocks scattered everywhere. The geologists say that it emerged from the bottom of the seas some million years ago. And there, in the middle of all these rocks, on the foot of Exomvourgo hill and the Venetian fortress, there is a small peculiar village reminding us of the galactic village of Asterix. Once upon a time, its dwellers were famous basket weavers and some of them still are. While walking through the picturesque streets, you might have a glimpse of them weaving, using bamboo, willow and osier shoots.
Leaving Volax behind, we start hiking in a low difficulty pathway. The route passing near dovecotes and watermills leads to Agape, a catholic village, that keeps its medieval character with arches and traditional houses, narrow alleys and different levels joined by stone steps. There you will enjoy raki or ouzo and a light meal.
The price includes the escort-guide, light meal at the village of Agape and transportations. Departure daily at 10.00 am, return at 3.30 pm.
