Guided Walking Holidays - Sifnos and Milos

As the pathway contours the hillside, our yacht comes slowly into view, waiting gently in the blue sparkling waters below. Descending to the water’s edge, we take in the views and climb aboard; we’re ready to set sail. Experience this journey with Ramblers Walking Holidays.

Sifnos and Milos, on the westernmost edge of Greece’s Cycladic islands, offer visitors white cubist villages, spectacular sunsets, wonderful coastline, bleached sand beaches and sparkling azure seas. These quiet, unassuming islands offer a wealth of well trodden pathways, ancient castles and quiet churches. Enjoy the idyllic coves and empty beaches, explore volcanic terrain and wander through tranquil countryside.

After spending a night in Piraeus on the Greek mainland, we take the ferry to Sifnos, a mountainous island with fertile green valleys. Cobbled footpaths link villages of white-washed houses with pretty churches and ancient towers. Dry-stone walls line the trails, and breathtaking views await us at every turn. The island has a long history of potters, and its ceramics are to be found in all corners of Greece.

Making the short ferry journey to Milos we discover a completely contrasting island. Volcanic in origin, many visitors don’t realise that Milos has perhaps the most extraordinary terrain of any of the Cyclades. Our walks take us past colourful rock formations, into caves and catacombs, along volcano craters sheltering rare cedar trees. We cross for a day to the small island of Kimolos where we’ll see the geological phenomena of ‘Skiadi’, rocks weathered into the shape of enormous mushrooms. The beaches are beautiful and often deserted.

Our day spent on a private yacht allows us to venture along the island’s west coast, with lunch on board, and is certain to be a highlight.
