Ridomo gorge starts in the deep heart of Taygetos mountain and after 25 km, leads to Santοva beach, near the city of Kalamata. The gorgeous gorge is a real geological phenomenon. Throughout its length, it is very easy to observe the uniqueness of its morphology, as well as the unique aesthetic value and practicality of its cobbled roads. There are 2 different routes available. The long one is 11km/6.8mi long and the short one is 6km/3.7mi.
The long route is an adventurous circuit of 11km. Our adventure begins at the cafeteria of Socrates by tasting the outstanding Greek coffee that only he can make. After our coffee, the hike starts and for the first 2km/1.2mi we hike down a gravel road towards the bottom of the gorge. For the next 5km/3mi we have to climb up the gorge until a manmade cobbled road. In some cases during the hike inside the gorge, we have to use our hands to cross some boulders. This is the only difficulty. For the last 4km/2.4mi, we hike all the way back to the van from the top of the gorge on a gravel road. That way we can cross undoubtedly the most beautiful piece of the canyon from the bottom and also admire the panoramic views on the way back.
