Walks on Santorini, Paros and Naxos
The Greek islands have much more to offer than most would think: archaeological treasures, history, culture, dramatic landscapes over an azure coloured sea and of course delicious food. Our week starts in the ancient city of Athens, before heading towards three beautiful islands, Paros, Santorini and Naxos. Exploring the irresistible island of Santorini on foot will certainly be the highlight of our week. Hopping from one wonderful island to the other, we enjoy a relaxed week of gentle walks through picturesque villages, lush valleys and sandy beaches.

On the islands, we use small family-run hotels, thus ensuring that our visit benefits the local communities. The rooms (up to 3* standard) are comfortable, clean and tidy, however the bathrooms can sometimes be a little small and old fashioned.

Single Accommodation is available for a supplement from GBP150.
These are ‘land only’ prices which require you to book your own flights and join the rest of the group on Day 1 of the trip. For more information please see Trip Notes

Interesting facts
The best trekking and climbing routs in Greece - Mount Olympus

Who of us, when reading the Greek myths, would not dream to see the mountain awing the ancient Greeks? Even these days Mytikas’s (Mount Olympus’s modern name) peak can be rarely seen as it is almost always hidden behind the dense clouds. Due to this reason, the ancient people believed Mount Olympus to be the place of residence of Gods, unreachable and invisible to human. Mytikas means "nose" and takes the name from its shape reminding of a human’s nose. Every proud-hearted Greek should at least once ascend the mountain; it is almost a duty, an unwritten rule, so to say, and numerous Greeks, sometimes in big groups, often ascend the mountains without wearing any special shoes or helmets.
