This is a relatively gentle hike to ease you back into things after the summer!

Starting from the edge of Thrakomakedones, we'll climb through the forests of Parnitha national park to Flambouri refuge. We'll make a loop to return, or, if there's an appetite for something more adventurous, we can return to Thrakomakedones along the top of Chouni Gorge.

We'll have lunch at Flambouri. They serve food.

The total distance is around Protected content (depending on the return route, which we can decide as a group on the day).

Elevation change is around 450m one way, so around 900m up and down. The paths are good.

Bring good shoes, water, food if you don't want to buy food at Flambouri, and protection from the elements.

Remember that timings are estimates; I'm guessing it'll take Protected content , but it could be more.


Approach Thrakomakedones on Leof. Kimis.
Turn left at the end, then right on Od. Meg. Alexandrou.
Follow it around (quite a way), until it becomes Od. Thessalonikis.
Follow this street round several curves. When it straightens, turn right on Edessis.
Follow Edessis up the hill, then turn right on Kastorias and park at the end.
