Our Special Thanks

The Menalon Trail created by a group of volunteers from Eastern Gortynia, with the participation of the Club of Arcadian Mountaineers and Ecologists (SAOO) and the support of the Region of Peloponnese and the Municipality of Gortynia. The Menalon Trail is incorporated in the prizewinning programme “Greek Paths of Culture” of the ELLINIKI ETAIRIA - Society for the Environment and Cultural Heritage. The programme aims to give new life to paths of particular natural beauty and historical importance, all over the country, stimulating local communities with an important factor of sustainable development, that of hiking tourism.

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of the A.G. Leventis Foundation, ELLINIKI ETAIRIA undertook the recording, the study and the realization of the trails’ bilingual signposting, especially designed for The Menalon Trail so that all necessary information could become accessible to the hiker. The mapping of the area, the development of the mobile applications and the specific software to design the signposting was undertaken by the AnaDigit cartographic company. The design and organization of The Menalon Trail, as well as the overall infrastructure that surrounds it, conforms to the standards set by the European Ramblers Association for the certification of walking networks complying to a criteria system of 41 quantitative, technical and qualitative parameters, in order to be certified and proposed to walkers from all over Europe as a reliable, attractive and safe mountain adventure.
