CYCLADES… THE IDEAL SELF-GUIDED WALKING HOLIDAY DESTINATION
Greece has the largest coastline in europe… it’s a country dominated by the deep blue sea. The most famous island group in the Aegean Sea, the Cyclades, is comprised by 24 inhabited islands that form an imaginary circle around the sacred island of Delos. They present the tips of drowned mountain ridges and offer an innumerable network of ancient paths and trails to be discovered by you!
Each Cycladic island offers you its own unique experiences: from the cultural life of Syros to the laid back island life of Amorgos… the diverse and lush agricultural lifestyle of Naxos… to the culinary delights of Sifnos… the volcanic islands and dramatic cliffs of Santorini.
Easily accessible from Athens and major international airports, the Cyclades have maintained a traditional way of life and the hospitality and genuine character of the local people will pleasantly surprise you! It is the reason why people go back year after year!
We offer 4-day, 7-day and 10-day island-hopping self-guided walking adventures that will introduce you to our favourite natural, cultural, historical and walking destinations.
