Vamvakou is a small mountain village in Laconia with few inhabitants, which is currently being reborn; a dream-like place which invites you to get to know it!
A group of young people wanted to write a new chapter in the story of the village, aspiring to breathe new life into it.
Do dreams come true? If we believe in them, yes, they do! Vamvakou Revival with the support of Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).
People say “Let’s go to the city for Christmas”, but we say “Off to the village”! The paved alleys, the quivering flame in the fireplace, the sparkling lights, the firs covered with snow, cozy delicacies and smells, all bring to mind Christmas in the village. In the mountain village of Vamvakou in Lakonia, at an altitude of 950 meters, original activities and themed experiences will keep us company until the first days of 2023.
Activities of creative play, education and recreation, technology and culture for the whole family. Trail hiking and cycling with HAIBIKE electric bicycles bring you closer to nature.
Enjoy exciting technological and scientific experiences. Discover the fascinating world of STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts Mathematics).
Mountain sports activities await you daily. Hiking, cycling by HAIBIKE electric bicycles, explorations and tours throughout the village and Mount of Parnon complement the program.
