We are preparing the new version of Taygetos ... but a surprise is waiting for you!

It will not be a just a map, it will be a hiking guide AND a map.

It will not be on a scale of 1:50 000 like the oldTaygetos map but 1:25 000, much more detailed.

Also ancient routes crossing the mountain in Antiquity are presented.

In the new guide with a map 1:25 000 of Taygetos that will be published at the end of March, we have 18 routes descriptions, divided into areas: Laconian, Messinian, Center and North side of Taygetos. Among the 18 routes there are all degrees of difficulty: GREEN = EASY | BLUE = INTERMEDITATE | RED = DEMANDING | BLACK = VERY DIFFICULT. The difficulty depends on elevation range, length and type of terrain
