terraces of green

Snow is almost gone, even in higher parts of Greece, and now only the mountain peaks are still white. During the long weekend I have gone with my bike to Zarouchla in gorge Peristeriona. The gorge is really amazing, with some panoramic views to the Aroania and Kyllini mountains, mountain springs and lakes and even gulf of Korynthos.

This is Kato Potamia, village half way through the gorge, with great view to the river and peaks and some really green fields!

seasonal lakes of achaea

A bit west from Patras, between airport of Araxos and beaches of Kalogria, are two seasonal lakes: Strofilia and Lamia. In winter and early spring they are both full of water. This one taken during bicycle ride Patras-Kalogria in february this year.

greek alps

Erymanthia is very often called 'the switzerland of greece'. White peaks in the background and green fields in foreground easily can give this impression. This one taken in first days of March, close to village Stavrodromi, just 40km south from Patra.
