What to expectThe place
At the foothills of the mount, Lykaion lay the springs of a beautiful "female" river called Neda. According to Greek mythology, Neda was a nymph, a goddess of water, and she was one of those who nourished Zeus. The gorge of the river Neda is a natural wonder of the Messinian countryside. The continually varying landscape, the lush forests, the turquoise waters, and the majestic cliffs, make the crossing of this gorge an unforgettable experience.
Your trekking experience begins near ancient Fygalia, the access point to the gorge from the nearby bridge. Get all the necessary equipment and start your fantastic crossing following the stream, which leads you into an unspoiled natural environment. Walkthrough wild vegetation, old plane trees, and wild oaks, through narrow rocky passages and impressive ponds discovering a well-hidden and genuine natural paradise.
Near the village of Neda, discover an enchanting portrait of nature. A creek called" neraidorema" (fairy creek). Crystal waterfalls flowing endlessly create blue ponds that pour into the main river and continue their course rapidly to the sea. At this spot is the end of your journey. Before your return back relax next to the gurgling water enjoying traditional delicacies and refreshing swims in the cool waters of the ponds.
