TTAG Athens Day Trips Mt Parnitha Hike

TTAG Athens Day Trips

We are excited to begin a new series of day trips, near Athens. Our first trip could not be anywhere else, than our beloved Parnitha! On Saturday 6/4 we will explore our favorite mountain in Attica! A stone's throw from the city center, we will combine exercise in a beautiful natural landscape, with hiking and a forest picnic.

Εγκαινιάζουμε μια νέα ενότητα ημερήσιων εκδρομών, κοντά στην Αθήνα. Η πρώτη μας δράση δε θα μπορούσε να είναι αλλού, από την αγαπημένη μας Πάρνηθα! Το Σάββατο 6/4 θα εξερευνήσουμε το αγαπημένο μας βουνό στην Αττική! Σε απόσταση αναπνοής από το κέντρο της πόλης, θα συνδυάσουμε άσκηση σε ένα πανέμορφο φυσικό τοπίο, με αναψυχή και παρεΐστικο πικ-νικ.

Trip Description

The route we will follow is one of the most typical in central Parnitha and is suitable for hiking at a leisurely pace, which everyone can follow. The paths form a circular path, quite dense but smooth, with rich vegetation and pass through key points of the mountain, such as Bafi, the Fire Lookout Hut (with the awesome panoramic view of Evia and Dervenochoria) and the church of St. Peter. At the same time, they offer many places to stop and rest. In some of them we will do mild physical and breathing exercises!

Η διαδρομή που θα ακολουθήσουμε είναι από τις πιο χαρακτηριστικές στην κεντρική Πάρνηθα και ενδείκνυται για πεζοπορία σε χαλαρούς ρυθμούς, που μπορούν να ακολουθήσουν όλοι. Τα μονοπάτια σχηματίζουν κυκλική πορεία, αρκετά πυκνά αλλά ομαλά, με πλούσια βλάστηση και διέρχονται από κομβικά σημεία του βουνού, όπως το Μπάφι, το Πυροφυλάκιο (με τη φοβερή πανοραμική θέα σε Εύβοια και Δερβενοχώρια) και το εκκλησάκι του Α. Πέτρου. Παράλληλα προσφέρουν πολλά σημεία για στάση και ξεκούραση. Σε κάποιο από αυτά θα κάνουμε ήπιες σωματικές και αναπνευστικές ασκήσεις! 


Our meeting will take place at the Bafi Refuge at 10.30 (arriving with our own means, carpooling will be arranged) where we will return around 3.30pm.

Η συνάντησή μας θα γίνει στο καταφύγιο Μπάφι στις 10.30 (φτάνουμε με δικά μέσα, θα οργανωθεί carpooling) όπου και θα επιστρέψουμε περίπου στις 15.30.

  • Boot or hiking shoe
  • Comfortable clothes (+1 change of clothes)
