The whole route takes around 4.5 hours to complete (around 10km walking time). It depends on how long you want to stay under the waterfall “showers” or just to sit around in the forest and contemplate. If you have limited time, especially if you are coming with cruise ship and you have max 6 h we suggest you to pick you up from Katakolo port of from ancient Olympia to drive you direct to this village where our hiking trail starts and then with pick up tracks you will be driven until the river bed where the hiking trail starts.You can walk around 3 km where the first waterfalls are and to stay there to enjoy this paradise on earth for about 2 hours.
In order to save time you will enjoy your picnic in nature with fresh fruits and after that experience that you will remember it for a long time you will go back to ancient Olympia so to the famous archaeological site too.
After that you will be transferred again to your cruise ship safe and on time.
