With this varied hike we walk through the valley of the Minagiotiko river from Kato Ampelokipi to Finikounda.
Hike from Kato Ampelokipi to Finikounda.
The Minagiotiko Natura 2000 trail crosses the valley of the Minagiotiko River, which rises in the area of Kato Ampelokipi and flows west of Finikounda. Along the river are 13 watermills, 7 are located along the route.
We meet in Finikounda where a taxi takes us in half an hour to our starting point in Kato Ampelokipi.
At the starting point are some monumental trees of the “Network of Ancient Trees of the Greek Revolution”. We start with the 500 m long path of the old water mills. We cross the river several times via wooden bridges. We have to walk back on this path because it does not connect to the trail.
After a short break we start the real trail of 13 km. The path is mainly downhill. Every now and then we have to jump across the river. After 4 km we pass Masoura’s water mill, built at the end of the 19th century. Here you can still see part of the aqueduct.
Half way through the trip it gets a bit challenging as we have to climb up a rope. After this we mainly walk along olive groves with beautiful old olive trees towards Finikounda overlooking the sea.
The route is not very difficult, but make sure you have good walking shoes and maybe also a walking stick.
