For these guided walking holidays, we will be staying in the charming village of Kissos in Kissos, high up in the Pelion mountains, with magnificent views, but only a 20 minute drive to the sea.
Our ‘base-camp’ is at Kalikalos, a holistic holiday centre, run in a community style. We will be part of the community and help with cooking, washing up and gardening (one shift each, and 2 washing up shifts). This is usually a lot of fun and a great opportunity to make new friends.
On our first day, Saturday, we will participate in the welcome community meeting, where we will learn everything about our stay and the philosophy of the centre. If you wish you can extend your stay at Kalikalos by booking an extra week either side of your hiking holiday as a ‘Community Guest’
or ‘Staff Volunteer (min 2 weeks) or Adjunct’
Delicious food prepared for ‘raw food week’
Rooms are shared, with the option of booking a single room (for €150 supplement per week).
Some rooms have an en-suite bathroom, others share a bathroom. There is also the possibility of sleeping in tents.
Meals are delicious and vegetarian, prepared by the community (staff volunteers, guests, workshop leaders, workshop participants) and using the freshest ingredients from our garden or fresh from the vegetable van. If you like cooking you could even lead a cooking team on one of the nights.
