Overview

The area around Vamos and Apokoronas is a great place to discover on foot! If you stay in Vamos, you should definitely take a walk in the countryside.With George as your guide, you will “travel through time” in a country walk full of beautiful nature and local history : Byzantine wells, the folklore museum, old churches and chapels, the small gorge that connected the traditional villages Gavalochori, Douliana in the old days and other interesting places.

We took a walk out to the "Chapel of the Black Madonna". Turned out to be a pretty adventurous walk, but it had everything - beautiful old houses around the town, rural landscapes, rugged rocky hillsides, barking dogs, friendly sheep, and (at least when we...More

Vamos is not on the tourist trail so remain relatively "unspoiled", though the cafes around the village square are welcoming to all visitors. It is good to sit under the shade of a eucaliptus tree, watch the comings and goings on the square and feel...More

Lovely walks, mostly off road following small paths. So much you see that can never be seen from a car...do it!

We loved the variety of walks offered in a series of booklets, and enjoyed the countryside so much more walking. There were unexpected views, sleepy villages, quiet valleys and busy beach areas. All in one walk!
