A new spring visit to the Northern Peloponnese peninsula in Greece for a wonderful array of flowers and wildlife!

The Peloponnese, Pelops island, father of Atreus. king of Mycenae, founder of the Atreidae dynasty, whose battles to conquer Troy inspired Homers Illiad, is Greece’s southernmost mainland peninsula. From high mountains in the north and extensive phrygana in the south it is a land of varied landscape and habitats.

The phrygana is habitat for a rich variety of orchids and bulbs, and indeed one of the best places to see autumn flowering Crocuses and Cyclamen. In spring the same places are a riot of colour covered in yellow-flowered Crown daisies, red Poppies and white sheets of Anthemis chiawith a great variety of orchids and bulbous plants.

We continue our exploration of the Peloponnese in spring by visiting some of the mountains of the Northern Peloponnese. This area is dominated by as a series of high mountains with an interesting flora, hosting endemic species and some asiatic species which have their foothold on these mountains. We shall explore the mountains of  Kyllini (Ziria),  Saittas, Klokkos and Chelmos.
