Vytina is one of the most famous Peloponnese large villages and is the ideal destination for wannabe explorers! Why, I hear you say? Because it is the birthplace of Panagiotis Potagos! Who is this guy, I hear you ask again, and why should I care, anyway? Well, he is one of the most accomplished (but unfortunately the least known) Greek explorers. Despite having no financial support from his homeland, he completed successfully two major missions in Asia and Africa, competing worthily some of the most renowned foreign explorers.
His legacy to all of you fellow explorers is two manuscripts. The second one, containing Kolokotronis' memories about the Greek War of Independence, was found just recently while restoring the local library. Alas, the manuscript is written in code and only the most bold and agile explorers will be able to crack it down!
The clues on paper or digital map will be your tools for discovery. Along this fun tour, in teams of 6-8 people, you will visit ancient and modern monuments, ask the locals to discover details, think & work with your team, and above all, have fun while learning.
The clues or pins on the map hide puzzles and surprises. Each clue or pin corresponds to an on-the-spot challenge, either that be a puzzle, a question or a team activity coordinated by Summit facilitators. By completing on-the-spot-challenges, teams win bonus points and also the alphabet letters corresponding to Potagos' secret code.
All of the challenges are interactive, either with the surrounding environment or with your teammates. The challenges are designed to tease your team's collective brain and inquisitive spirit in a playful way.
When the time is up, the team that first translates the manuscript and has the highest score, is the winner and gets a special Explorer Prize.
