A circular hiking tour with superb views on Mt. Skaron in east Lefkada. Our hike starts from the picturesque rural village of Kolyvata at an altitude of 425m and crosses the slopes of Mt. Skaron following traditional paved footpaths and forest dirt roads covered with tall tree-like maquis vegetation, dense shrubs, oaks and many rare wild flowers. During the hike we visit the historic Monastery of Evangelistria’s Red Church in ‘Platystoma’ (1458 A.D.) and Agios Georgios Monastery (1611 A.D.) two of the most important religious monuments of Lefkada. The hike ends at Kolyvata village, where we will savour a unique home-made Mediterranean meal with Lefkada’s traditional recipes.
