This guidebook describes 41 challenging day walks in the mountains of Greece, that can be combined to make challenging long distance treks, in the Pindhos Range, near Athens and in the east coast and the Peloponnese areas. The walks demand a high degree of commitment and physical ability due to their remoteness and difficult terrain.
