The relationship between men and the land, mountains, hills and plains are both primordial and profound. In Greece this relationship has been etched in the history, art and soul of its inhabitants.
From ancient times, high peaks comprised the shelters, hide-outs and symbols of freedom, as well as the challenges for man who always wanted to explore the limits of the planet. A highlands hike follows ancient trails carved in the mountain and the hiker finds himself lost in the physical beauties of the highlands as he enjoys their secrets. Exploring caves (spelunking) always challenges the daring who want to discover the mysteries of the inner worlds of the earth, where light rarely reaches. Thousands of years later, these passions became recreational sports and activities, but a primordial spark was always maintained: man’s need to become one with nature, to shatter the limits, to learn the unknown.
