    Description

    The trail starts from the village of Panagia and meanders uphill towards the mountain. During the hike, you will learn about nature, history and the myths and traditions of Iraklia. You will come across goats that graze freely in the mountains, and maybe even birds of prey.

    Then you will reach the Cave of Agios Ioannis and the famous Cave of the Cyclops from Homer's Odyssey where there will be a short break before the main part of the tour. You will then put on your gear and enter the cave.

    Following the advice of your tour guide regarding taking caution and respecting space restrictions you will explore the chambers of the cave. A fascinating maze of geological formations such as stalactites and stalagmites embellish the cave and will dazzle and impress.

    The total length of the hike is 5.5 kilometers.
