Sail & Walk - Sailing and hiking Adventure Holidays in the Greek islands
Get off the beaten track for a true sailing & trekking adventure!
Sail and hike holidays in the Greek islands is your opportunity to explore the amazing Greek islands by sail and foot. Walk and explore the old mule tracks, admire Byzantine churches ancient settlements, discover the unique fauna and flora (the Cyclades islands have 1400 species from which 83 are endemic) and fauna, the breathtaking landscapes, hike and conquer the peaks of the mountains for an unforgettable view of the Aegean sea.
A 7 day trip is a good introduction for a hike and sail adventure in the Aegean. However, during an extended 14 day trip you would have the opportunity to explore the best of the Cyclades by sail and foot.
Let us sail you to off-the-beaten-track islands (Kea, Kythnos,Serifos and Sifnos are just a few examples) or to already consecrated hiking destinations (like Naxos, Amorgos and Andros - very well known destination for walking).
The best time for a sail & hiking adventure in the Greek islands? From March to May and from September to November is the best time to walk the Greek. Spring in the Aegean is particularly beautiful because of the abundance of flowers covering the islands and the greenery. Summer month, June-August is not recommended for walkers.
What are the best Greek islands for hiking?
Well ... that's really difficult to decide. Many of the islands in the Cyclades (within easy reach from Athens) have a great variety of paths, ranging from very easy to more difficult trails to accommodate a leisure walker but also the experienced hiker looking for adventure.
Thus even the most demanding hiker will have a variety of walking paths to choose from.
