Athens 4χ4 jeep Safari Tour Parnitha Mountain Park, Greece
Escape in Parnitha National Park in a semi private safari tour up to 6 or 8 persons per vehicle.
Mount Parnitha is a densely forested mountain range 40 km north of Athens. It is offered as an ideal place for the residents or guests of Athens city, as it provides the opportunity to enjoy nature and it is the perfect relaxation place from the constant city stress for its guests. Parnitha national park is full of pine and fir forests. It is a true oasis for many species of wildlife, such as red deer, foxes and many kinds of birds, as well as it is the main getaway during the hottest summer days and a vast snow-covered playground during the winter.
Our Day starts after the pickups from the hotels or a point close to the indicated hotels if the car access is not possible. We will follow the national road which leads to Parnitha Mountain and on the way we will pick up our morning coffee or tea or juice.
It will take us less than an hour of driving to leave Athens noisy city-centre and enter to the entrancement of the mountains. Our first stop will take place at 600m altitude at Lake Beletsi which is an artificial lake that seems to belong in a fairytale. The landscape resembles the Alps and is not at all reminiscent of Athens, Greece. Continuing our route in Parnitha Mountain we will follow a unique off-road route through the forest full of pine trees, goats, chapels, monasteries and natural springs. After our little adventure, we will approach Avlonas Village. Crossing the village and heading onwards, the mountain adventure starts again through an off-road route to Voutima wildlife refuge. The uniqueness of the terrain, the dense vegetation, rare species of endemic plants, the different kinds of mammals and species of birds are spread in smaller or larger areas of the mountain. Reaching the west slope of Parnitha Mountain, a panoramic breathtaking view of Saronic golf with the islands of Salamina and Aigina will appear in front of us.
Driving on the asphalt road and enjoying the panoramic view of Saronic from above, we will arrive at Hasia village and working up an appetite. We will visit a traditional Greek tavern where we will be welcomed by the owner. He will introduce us to Greek Mediterranean cuisine with plenty of food, wine and warm Greek hospitality.
After our lunch break, we will follow the road back to Athens through villages before reaching the city of Athens. The escort drivers of our premium offroad vehicles will create a memorable day out with the best panoramic views of Parnitha's mountain with amazing photo opportunities in order to capture every moment!
A unique escape with great hospitality, adventure and professional relaxed service!!!
