The large prefecture of Arkadia offers fantastic hiking opportunities for all levels, thanks to its verdant mountains, rivers, gorges and coasts. One such interesting three-hour hike is in the Lousios gorge with stops at the historical monasteries and the area’s archaeological sites (such as the Hidden school, Timiou Prodromou Monastery and Gortina). Another area worth hiking in is the mountainous region of North Kinouria. Mount Lykaion at Ano Karyes is 1,421 meters high, and takes about an hour to climb.
Attractions include the Mostos Lagoon and biotope, located near Koutroufa, as well as the dam and artificial lake of Ladonas. Also check out the Lepidas waterfall in Platanos and the gorge of Zarbanitsa.
