Greek Island Walking
Discover two beautiful islands of the Cyclades - Santorini and Naxos - on this self-guided walking holiday. Santorini, a volcanic island shaped by a dramatic eruption thousands of years ago, is known for its whitewashed houses and black beaches. Naxos is an island of contrasts with some lively resorts co-existing with very traditional rural areas. Exploring on foot takes you to the heart of both of these islands.
Please note: This itinerary can also be done in reverse if this better suits your flight times.
