Know before you go

The road to Syrrako and Kalarrites full of steep drop-offs, hairpin-turns, and narrow lanes as well as due to extreme weather conditions, you might encounter rocks that have fallen off the cliffs or even puffed up asphalt. It’s not the kind of road you necessarily need a 4x4 vehicle, however there is a little room for error on these way and you should always keep an eye on the lane.
