3. Weightlifting & strongman (all clean and snatch variations, as well as strongman techniques)

Personal Training
During your personal training session, you will train with your coach individually and focus on your own goals. You can decide whether you want a high intensive training session, improve your technical Crosstraining skills, or whether you want to focus on stretching and flexibility. Your coach will support you throughout the process and makes sure you will get the most out of it.

"Salt Yoga" focuses primarily on Vinyasa yoga, connecting breath with movement while moving through asana in a dynamic and fluid way. The outdoor courses were designed to promote strength, flexibility and concentration while strengthening body and mindset.

4h Sea Kayaking Excursion Along the Coast of West Mani Including a Picknick → OUR RECOMMENDATION
During this fitness holiday, you will have a unique way to explore and experience the impressive coastline by Sea Kayaking. Paddling at the foot of the imposing Taygetos, you will discover the wild beauty of a place that was never conquered.

Sea Kayaks give you the opportunity to explore inch by inch the rich imagery and diversity of the indented coastline of Mani. We paddle in turquoise waters, discovering idyllic beaches sprouted between the coastal fishing villages, which are rich in history and tradition.

At the beginning of the activity we attend a brief but comprehensive introduction to the basics of sea kayaking. We get our kayaks and begin to enjoy an excursion where each little cove hides a special surprise such as hidden caves, cliffs with spectacular formations and unique beaches with sand or pebbles such as the well hidden beach of Foneas with the white pebbles or the beach of Kalogria with its fine golden sand and turquoise waters.

The beach of Kalogria is known as the beach of Zorbas, as this was the place where writer Nikos Kazantzakis met his hero of his book Zorba the Greek. Halfway we make a relaxing stop for swimming, snorkelling and a picnic with local traditional delicacies.

Included are:
Full Sea Kayak equipment: boat, paddle, life jacket, spray-skirt, waterproof jacket
Extra equipment: waterproof bags and cases, pumps and paddle-float
Snorkeling equipment (goggles and respirators)
BCU trained and certified guides
Sea Kayak course
Tour planning – Sightseeing
Picnic with fruit and Traditional delicacies

Equipment for rental or purchase is available.

  • Price: €65 / person


Hiking in the Taygetos Mountains
From the Viros majestic gorge, through Vasiliki’s timeless forest down to Trachila’s sea sculpted rocky coves, Western Mani is blessed with a landscape so diverse that can keep you busy for a lifetime exploring it.

Routes and trails can be tailored to suit all levels and needs. The easy routes include soft inclines with walking times of 2 to 3 hours, the medium difficulty routes are for 5 to 6 hours on hard ground or through gorges and the difficult routes can be for long hours (6 to 8 hours) and include crossing or climbing in the mountains (like the peak of Taygetos mountain 2407m.), and require high level of fitness.

  • Price for 2h hike: €35 / person
  • Price for 5h hike: €75 / person


Those that love mountain biking will find themselves in wonder at the astonishing routes which pass through nature using dirt tracks, forest roads and stone paths. The mountain villages of West Mani are connected with the sea villages with a net of un-surfaced or asphalt roads that can offer long uphill and downhill rides for the road bike enthusiasts.

You can rent a bike and discover the area by yourself or join one of the cycling tours.

Sunset Bike Tour (2.5 hours)
Are you looking for some inspiration for your next sunset-spotting adventure? We have the perfect suggestion for you! Watch Mother Nature put on her nightly display, from Stoupa to Trahila and back. As the sun drops into the sea, watch daylight turn to dusk from the sienna rocks of the west Mani coast and stand on the sandy beach of Pantazi for a quick dip, as the warm sunset sun illuminates the coastline.

About the itinerary, on your ride you'll pedal coast to coast partly on a bike road and partly on a low traffic road, riding through three of the west Mani’s original fishing villages -Selinitsa, Agios Dimitrios and Trahila – with Stoupa as the starting and ending point

  • Price for "Sunset Bike Tour": €45 / person

Road Bike Tour (4-5 hours)
The quiet, unspoiled west Mani mountainous villages are waiting to be discovered on this half day guided cycling tour. Pedal away from the busy tourist hotspots and find traditional, stone-built villages perched on hills where warm and friendly local people make a living tending their fields, serving hearty homemade food in small tavernas and coffee shops and picking the fresh produce grown there – tomatoes, olives, cucumbers, figs, eggs and home-made, traditional cheese.

While west Mani beaches fill with tourists during the summer, cycling will take you to quiet places and to its unspoiled heart, where nature thrives and life remains largely unchanged. The mountainous area is really quiet, and an ideal location for cycling. Pedal along deserted roads and quiet tracks where you’re more likely to meet a goat or maybe a wild boar, than another tourist.

This is an exceptional opportunity to cycle through the West Mani's culture, history and nature. From the mountain villages down to the coast line, this ride is the best way to explore and experience the area, seeing all the beautiful details … that you’d never see from a car seat!

Regarding the itinerary and the starting point, this cycling tour can be tailored to meet your family or small group’s preferences with distances, fitness levels, type of bikes and time spent on the saddle, all designed to give you an experience that is unique as well as genuinely rewarding.

  • Price for "Sunset Bike Tour": €80 / person
