Stop At: Diakofto, Diakofto, Achaea Region, West Greece

Our next stop is at "Diakofto", from where you will take the Cog Railway (Odontotos) that links Kalavrita with Diakopto, through Vouraikos Canyon. It is one of the most beautiful natural sights and one of the most spectacular railway rides in Greece. It has been mentioned as the most beautiful train trip in Balkans! The little train travels through streams climbing the fantastic narrow gorge, up into the mountains, through tunnels, over waterfalls, along cliffs and through forests of pine and oleander. When the incline gets really steep it switches from regular track to a cog system. The journey ends at the town of Kalavryta.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Kastria Cave of the Lakes, Kastria Greece

Our driver will meet you there to continue the tour at the mysterious, magnificent and unique "Cave of the Lakes", a rare creation of Nature. Small and large lakes, 13 in total, with different colors each one, depending on the oxides contained in the rocks. You will see the wonderful «hanging bridge», the «waterfalls» «falling» and you will have the feeling of being on a floating corridor. Also you will admire strange stalactite formations. In winter when the snow melts, the cave is transformed into a subterranean river with natural waterfalls. The cave's explored length is 1,980 meters. The developed part of the cave is currently 500 meters long. You will start to explore the cave through an artificial tunnel that leads you directly to the second floor, whose sight is truly awe-inspiring. The passage of the lakes is made by elevated artificial bridges. We will have a stop for lunch at the picturesque village of Kalavrita.
