ROUTE PROGRAMME

The European Long Distance Trail E4 is an international trail developed by the European Mountain Hiking Association in the following countries: Spain, France, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Greece and Cyprus.


Regarding the Greek section, its design and signaling was done by the Hellenic Mountaineering Federation. The route of E4, passes from the road Promachonas-Serres to the bridge of Strymon river, where it crosses with E6 and reaches Greece at the outpost of Niki, north of Florina. Continuing south, it crosses the mountains of Vernon, Vermio, Pieria and Olympus, to reach through the mountains of central Greece to Delphi and Itea.


Then it passes through the Corinthian Gulf to Aigio and the Peloponnese. It crosses from north to south Achaia, Arcadia and Laconia and the mountains of Helmos, Mainalos, Parnonas and Taygetos to reach Gythio. From there it passes to Kastelli in Crete, which it crosses from west to east to reach Zakros.


On its way to Achaia, the European path E4 from Aigio continues to Diakopto and through the gorge of the Vouraikos river and the jagged train lines passes through Kalavrita. Then it ascends to the northwestern slopes of Helmos and passes successively through the Upper and Lower Loussos, near the Caves of Lakes in Kastria, Planetero, Arbounas, Agios Nikolaos, Tourlada, Krinofyta, Lykouria and Lykouria.


The route of the European path E4 in Achaia is about 75 km long. The point with the lowest altitude of the route is the sea level and the highest 1,300m. The time required to cross the route is estimated at 4 days. Of course, partial daily walks can take place.


Along the way there is the possibility of accommodation and dining in many of the villages it passes through.


The path is marked with direction signs on a yellow background and black letters on poles that have been placed at intersections and give information about the course, length and time for the next village or location. There are also small square white plates on a white background in the shape of a yellow rhombus and a black border, marked "E4" in black letters. There is also marking with black and yellow colors on rocks, trees, yards, etc. The marking has unfortunately been destroyed in several places over time, so today it is considered rather incomplete.
