Our Greece Holidays
A circular holiday from Rhodes.
This relaxed island hopping holiday takes us on an alternative journey to a part of Greece where time seems to stand still. Walking amongst ancient ruins and in secluded, unspoilt countryside, discover each island’s unique place in history.
Enjoy a week walking in Crete from Chania.
Crete, the largest and most southerly of the Greek islands. The scattered remains of Minoan palaces, Byzantine churches and Venetian fortifications tell of the passage of whole civilisations. The wild countryside, interspersed with attractive villages, gorges and archaelogical remains; dramatic coastline tracks and lush beach paths all make for a great week’s walking.
Leisurely walking on the Greek Island of Rhodes.
NEW A holiday of wonderful leisurely walks with great scenery and ample time to appreciate Rhodes' beauty. Enjoy the island’s endless sandy beaches, array of buildings, traditional cuisine and great climate, which even in winter is ideal, when the days are generally mild and bright.
Walking the Southern Peloponnese from a base on the Mani peninsula.
In the springtime the natural beauty of the Mani in the Southern Peloponnese comes alive with an abundance of flora and our walks will allow time to appreciate the outstanding scenery.

Walkers’ paradise in the northern Cyclades.
