There is nothing better than discovering an island on foot. Where the car can not come, the pearls can be found. To fully enjoy the landscape and taste the atmosphere of nature but also the villages, you have to stand still for a moment, look around and be jiggered by what you encounter on your path.
Walking on Crete:
Together with a guide you can travel inland far from mass tourism. Discover the island of contrasts: A beautiful rugged green nature with savage mountains, ancient cypresses, chestnut trees, olive groves and vineyards, orange trees, not to mention the clear blue sea and the idyllic bays on the south coast. We go to eat and drink at nice and hidden addresses and visit the small producer himself.
Nature of the walks:
Crete is a large island with an infinite number of hiking trails. We have a big choice regarding the level of difficulty. A nice walking program can be made that meets your wishes.
Walking on Naxos:
Naxos is the largest island of the Cyclades and offers many hiking opportunities. Many old paths are still maintained. An island with a lot of history, beautiful villages and beautiful beaches. From the highest peak Za you can see and map the entire island together with the surrounding Cyclades islands.
Walking on Amorgos:
Amorgos is less easy to reach and therefore little inhabited. You can make fantastic walks with surprising and beautiful spots. It has few roads, so to really explore it, the best way is on foot.
Walking on Santorini:
Santorini is and remains a very special island. Unique volcanic island of its kind with a beautiful Caldera and an exceptional ancient history, perhaps there was the Atlantis. It is therefore one of the most visited islands in the world. For those who want to combine culture and walking, and who love a good glass of wine, there must have been a visit. The island offers short walks, archaeological sites, museums, wine tasting and not to forget, a beautiful sunset!
