AWARENESS PROGRAMS

JOIN OUR MYTHICAL EXPEDITIONS

Our Awareness Programs and Awareness Rides aim to help understand the fragility of our environment and the importance of its protection. Environmental awareness is an integral part of any program's success. By teaching our friends and family that the physical environment is fragile and indispensable we can begin fixing the problems that threaten it. Do you feel that you can contribute to our causes?

Promoting environmental awareness is an easy way to become an environmental steward and participate in creating a brighter future for our children

SAVE EPIRUS PROJECT

Epirus is a geographical and historical region in southeastern Europe. It lies between the Pindus Mountains and the Ionian Sea, stretching from the Bay of Vlorë and the Acroceraunian mountains in the north to the Ambracian Gulf and the ruined Roman city of Nicopolis in the south.

A rugged and mountainous region, Epirus was the north-west area of ancient Greece. It was inhabited by the Greek tribes of the Chaonians, Molossians, and Thesprotians, and home to the sanctuary of Dodona, the oldest ancient Greek oracle, and the most prestigious one after Delphi. Unified into a single state in 370 BC by the Aeacidae dynasty, Epirus achieved fame during the reign of Pyrrhus of Epirus who fought the Roman Republic in a series of campaigns. Epirus subsequently became part of the Roman Republic along with the rest of Greece in 146 BC, which was followed by the Roman Empire and Eastern Roman Empire.

Epirus is facing a threat with catastrophic consequences for the environment, livestock farming, crops, livestock farming, and the ever-growing tourist product. Exports of hydrocarbons (oil and gas) pose a threat to public health and a serious deterioration of the protected areas of Epirus.

The SaveEpirus Adventure Ride is a mission to raise awareness and help preserve our most valuable asset, our rich national environment. All our friends and contributors are true ambassadors of healthy and respectful Adventure Life, wandering every corner of Greece, showcasing this natural treasure. With a full spectrum of focuses ranging from supporting nature educators and photographers to producing adventure and historical material, Mythical Routes is at the forefront of landscape protection and improvement.

Our SaveEpirus Awareness Ride (spring of 2020) will ride through majestic landscpe and feature hiking and camping activites that we hope will showcase this natural treasure and help protect the future of Epirus.

FINDING ALEXANDRIA THE FURTHEST

Alexandria Eschate or Alexandria Eskhata (Greek Ἀλεξάνδρεια Ἐσχάτη), literally "Alexandria the Farthest", was a city founded by Alexander the Great, at the south-western end of the Fergana Valley (modern Tajikistan) in August 329 BCE. It was the most northerly outpost of the Greek Empire in Central Asia. Alexandria Eschate was established on the south bank of the river Jaxartes (Syr Darya), at or close to the site of modern Khujand. According to the Roman writer Curtius, Alexandria Ultima retained its Hellenistic culture as late as 30 BCE.

Alexandria Eschate was the Northernmost outpost of the Greek Empire in Central Asia

Of the many cities founded by Alexander the Great, Alexandria Eschatê was probably the one that created most problems. From the very beginning, there were troubles; and this must have surprised Alexander, because the march to the river Jaxartes, in the early summer of 329, had been easy. The last resistance to his rule had vanished after his friend Ptolemy had captured the Persian leader, Bessus.
