24 - 27/2 Mountain Menalon
Arcadia Peloponnese


Following the footsteps of inspiration, we make a stop at the work of the well-known creator Guillermo del Toro where the Pan symbolizes natural things and the Labyrinth the search for truth. Then we find ourselves in the years of the Renaissance in Europe, when the Arcadian ideal is also being developed, and it is the raw material of a literary trend with an emphasis on simplicity and the measure that "does not allow the human to exceed the natural". From this time, we are transported to Arcadia or Pania and in myth, to a world with wild vegetation, rushing rivers and dense mountains, the birthplace and field of action of the God Pan. God's presence embodies manifested life and symbolizes a world of power and harmony. However, his dual nature, with an animal nature at the bottom and a more human nature at the top, testifies through a passage through dark "labyrinths" to a path of self-knowledge and transcendence of basic instincts.

With our camp based on the mountain of Mainalo , in this escape we will have the opportunity to discover what made this country mythical and mystical. We will navigate through the dense fir trees between the paths that connect beautiful villages, exercise in the forest and in the rivers with practices oriented to strength and self-awareness.


It is only poetically appropriate to look at Arcadia. In the consciousness of the ancient world, it was recorded as the Pre-Moon, with people inhabiting it since the moon was not yet in the sky and building the first city to see the sunlight.

It became a current during the Renaissance in European literature and the arts, symbolizing a field of simplicity and bliss. Meadows and pastures, gorges and ravines, rivers and waterfalls compose a evocative nature. With references and findings from prehistory and the ancient world, Arcadia walks mythically into the timeless.

She mysteriously weaves her relationship with all people, and they mysteriously respond, "ET IN ARCADIA EGO".


In this Retreat we will camp in a field of Mainalos among the fir trees, while we will have the opportunity to visit some of the most beautiful villages in the area such as Stemnitsa, Alonistena, Dimitsana, Vytina and Karytaina. Villages with countless nutritional treasures, wild mushrooms and herbs. With these raw materials we will cook on the fire and have the opportunity for relaxation that only the forest can offer.
