Description:

starts inside the facilities of Costa Navarino at the bicycle rental area (Navarino Outdoors) and is directed towards the south exit of the complex following the asphalt road slightly uphill for about 500 meters. After exiting the complex, the route turns sharply right into a dirt road towards the beach and downhill.

After a distance of running by the sea, it diverges from the beach and follows an uphill track up to 2.5km. It continues on asphalt with slight downhill for 200 meters while the next kilometer (from 3.2km. up to 4.2km.) is the most uphill track of the route. The next kilometer is downhill till the wildlife shelter of Lake Divariou where following the dirt road, we end up at Voidokilia beach where the most beautiful but also demanding part of the route begins.

At this point the route goes around the beach by the sea on the golden sand for 650 m. At the end of the beach it moves left towards the dunes to be driven on a narrow dirt road for about one kilometer around Lake Divariou. Then it diverges from the lake, following a wide dirt road till the pumping station where meets the lake again, to continue moving around within the wetland from the 9th km. up to 13th km. where again meets Voidokilia beach.

Having now entered the way back, we move to the mainland on a dirt road in rural area until Petrohori located at the 17th km. Then a short but fairly steep uphill road follows until we enter the last 4km. which are the same as in the beginning of the route with the respective small uphill and downhill till the finishing line in Costa Navarino!
