Tempi valley Walking / Hiking route

 

5. High crossing of the Valley.

p41304162 

We meet at Rapsani railway station, just off the Thessaloniki - Larisa highway, near the east entrance / exit of the Tempi valley. From there we are transferred in our means of transport to the high hills above the valley to the west, at a height of 500m. Here we start our walk. We follow a path, which takes us along and over the cliffs of the Tembi Valley and onto the Pinios River. This is a high crossing of the valley with stunning views of the river down below and Mt. Kissavos, all the way along the trek. We will have a lot to talk about, as we cross this historic valley. The place holds amazing stories and myths from the very - very old times… We finish at a picturesque chapel where the picnic is waiting for us, at about 100m. A wonderful walk indeed!

The first part of the walk is downhill dirt road, the middle and longest main section is almost flat and the last part is downhill. It takes 2.00’ to 3.00’ hours of moderate walk.

Price: 35.00€ p.p.

How you come to the Rapsani railway station: If you come from the north on the Thessaloniki / Larisa highway, just before you enter into the Tempi valley, you meet the Rapsani railway station on your left side. Just opposite the station on your right side, there is a restaurant / caffe and petrol station. This is where we meet. If you come from the south, 1000m after exiting the Tempi valley, you come to the Rapsani railway station (on your right).
