Kampi To Keri Coastal Hike
Through My Lens
Last week I shared part one of our Kampi to Keri Coastal hike. It was an amazing 25km hike that we had been toying with for a while, but had to be fit enough as a group before stepping up to this challenge.
The other part of the challenge was finding a route that was obstacle-free, which is easier said than done. For that, credit has to go to my husband who managed it without having us climb any fences or having to run from marauding dogs!… Now that would ha e added to the drama of last weeks post!Part Two of our Kampi to Keri coastal hike – through my lens. The views were stunning & the weather very changable… Come see what we saw #Zakynthos #Zante Click To Tweet
Come join us on our hike and see what we saw…
Our Kampi To Keri Coastal Hike – Through My Lens…
This is where we left off last week in part one; in the back of beyond, sitting by the side of the road having a quick break.
Having a decent amount of rainfall (usually all at once) means that Zakynthos is a beautiful green island. Can you imagine living in those houses, far away from everything?
The Kampi to Keri coastal hike took us over all sorts of terrain.
The Kampi to Keri hike wasn’t overly hilly. This was one of the steeper climbs – think buns of steel!
When you see where the trail is taking us it can’t be argued that some hills are worth the climb.
Meeting Fellow Hiking Buddies & A Perfect Place For A Picnic…
Right on time (Greek time, that is). This photograph marks the halfway point of our hike and is where some of our hiking group met us to do the second half of the walk. I was very impressed as the rendezvous took place in the back of beyond!
We do seem to enjoy a break, don’t we? But then what’s the rush when we are surrounded by such natural beauty?
And in the presence of good company?
Stretching the tootsies or playing this little piggy?
A stunning view, don’t you think? And the clown in the picture is a good distance away from the edge – I promise!As these photos taken on our Kampi To Keri hike show #Zakynthos really is a beautiful Greek island #Zante #Greece Click To Tweet
Parts of Zakynthos is totally unspoiled. You just have to know where to look.
The view down was worth a peek.
To take this photograph I was flat out (on my belly) – I wasn’t taking any risks! To think there was a time BC (before camera) when I wouldn’t even have entertained the thought of a looking over an edge. I only go in lifts if there aren’t any stairs!
Zakynthos is a really beautiful island that I would recommend anyone who enjoys hiking to visit out of season.
The Final Trudge Back To Keri & The Cars…
The clouds started to build up again.
Beautiful, don’t you think?
We still had a way to go, but if you look into the distance you can just about see Keri village, our destination.
The above photograph is my favourite of all the photos I took on the hike. I really like the feel of it. What do you think?
Around another bend and Keri goes out of sight, but the views in front kept us happy.
Another favourite photograph of mine. We started as the sun rose and even though this was mid-afternoon the sun looked ready to drop.
So close we could almost smell the cars parked at Keri village.Yay! We're still smiling at the end of our 25km hike from Kampi to Keri #Zakynthos #Zante Click To Tweet
We did it!… As if we ever doubted ourselves?… Our Kampi to Keri coastal hike was a success and you can tell from the happy, but tired faces that it was a challenge worth facing.
Our next big challenge? Who knows? Husband has mentioned extending this hike to 40km, but when the island you live on is only 20km by 40km we are quite limited for distance!
Do you enjoy a challenge? How far would you go?
