When embarking on a walking holiday in Greece, you can watch the sunrise over an ancient amphitheatre, and gaze in awe as the whitewashed villages turn to gold. Later, enjoy a serene walk along the winding paths of the Greek coastline, before watching the sunset upon the crystal-clear waters of the Aegean Sea.
Venture to the Greek Islands for lesser-known, yet enchanting areas, for an authentic taste of Greek life. Visit Rhodes and walk its wild landscapes and diverse coastlines, wander through scatterings of whitewashed buildings, and taste the classic and delicious cuisine, while sipping on distinctive wines.
History buffs can enjoy a Classic Greek Journey, walking through the fascinating historical landscape of Corinth and Olympia, all the way to the land of ancient Sparta. Travellers will get the chance to walk in the footsteps of people from the ancient world, visiting sacred spots and fascinating war sites, while wandering through olive groves and scaling the peaks of the Taygetos Mountains.
For a slower-paced trip, explore Pelion and Sporades. Admire the wildflowers and ramble the woodland footpaths that pass through quaint villages while island hopping, and visit the famous Mamma Mia island - Skopelos.
Experience Greece by Foot, For a Truly Unique Holiday
When walking in Greece, you’ll find that the landscape is dry and mountainous, and the slopes are lined with lush olive-green vegetation, nourished by the volcanic soil. Our Greece walking holidays can take you to the Pindus Mountains of Epirus, or for a great stroll through Crete, with its heavenly turquoise waters.
Follow the cobbled Byzantine footpaths during your trip, and head to the shady forests, offering respite from the hot Greek sun. Or, explore the glorious coasts that are like a picture-postcard brought to life, where dolphins play and the 1,400 Greek islands lie scattered in the distance. This makes hiking in Greece an ideal way to admire the many sights this country has to offer, since you can truly immerse yourself in the many exquisite landscapes here.
