Activities

1. SPORTS AND OTHER ACTIVITIES

Three tracks start from the village, leading to the Mt Giona, to the Cave of Zoodochos Pigi and the Mornos river. Within the village itself there is a playground, a basketball field, and a small (5x5 players) football field in a fair condition.
All surrounding rocky mountains are ideal for climbing. The cliff of the Mt Giona, the world famous "plaka", is a negative angle slope that attracts a lot of risky climbers. The construction of a modern Climbing Center in Sykea has just been completed and is expected to become operative in the months to come.
There are no professional sport services providers operating in the region. Nevertheless, several organized groups are considerably active here (based in Athens or elsewhere), especially as far as climbing is concerned.
