This is an absolute must, if you are at the northern side of Peloponnese and love trains and great nature. The train is between the cities of Diakofto and Kalavrita. The city of Diakofto is a nice smaller city, and the train station is very easy to find. If you have a little waiting time untill the next train, there... More

Whilst visiting Kalavryta my girlfriend and I decided to catch the train to Diakofto (rack rail) and back! We are so so glad we did because this definitely is an experience! Travelling amongst the green you will immediately appreciate nature with the luscious green above and below whilst appreciating the running river below! Nice easy rollercoaster ride in slow motion!... More

This train ride is unique in that it uses a cog/tooth system on the steeper parts of the track. You can take the train from Diakofto to Kalavrita but it has one stop at Zaklorou village just before Kalavrita which is where my husband and I get off and then walk the 12 kilometres back down the track to Diakofto....

This has got to be one of the most scenic rail journeys in the world. The trip from Diakopto to Kalavrita takes just over an hour and the train passes some stunning scenery through a gorge, rock formations, waterfalls and cliffs. It cost about 12€ return which is well worth it. When the weather is slightly cooler, it would be... More
