Birthplace of the Olympic games, home of medieval island fortresses and the pirate coves that form thesouthernmost tipof Continental Europe, the Peloponnese boasts extreme geographical diversity, from snowcapped mountain peaks to crystal clear turquoise seas and anything inbetween.
With over 4 millennia of recorded history, southern Greece has been a place where ancient civilisations clashed and significant cultural exchanges took place, something evident to this day. The remote mountain villages of Arcadia, the stone towers of the Mani peninsula and the medieval island town of Monemvasia are as different as they come, but all within a day’s drive from each other.
Culture aside, this has always been a favorite destination for travellers looking for outdoor adventures. Horseback riding by theseaamongcenturies oldpiratetowers in Porto Kayo, white water rafting down the scenic Lousios rapids in Arcadia, sea kayaking to an 18th century island fort in Nafplio and off road 4x4 driving in the forest of Foloi, home of themythical centaurs, are just a few highlights of a visit to this part of southern Europe.

"I loved every minute of my visit to Swedish Lapland. From the dog sledding, to the action packed snowmobile adventure. The hospitality was second to none, matching the amazing local food."
