Description

If you want to have an outdoors adventure in the closest spot to paradise on earth, then you should join me on the Cyclades Islands’ trekking in Greece.

The Cyclades islands are a group of islands located in the Aegean Sea, in the southeastern region of Greece. 

And I will take you sailing to Amorgos and Paros, two of the most beautiful and less crowded islands of this archipelago. And once on these islands we’ll go hiking to discover some ancient roads and structures surrounded by an incredible landscape and the blue and turquoise sea.

My plan is to spend a few days in each islands, to visit the best of both of them. And every night we’ll be sleeping on the boat, that will be following our progress by sea. Plus you’ll be able to have relaxing swims in the golden beaches that will surround us every time.

So send me a request to join a group on a fix date or let me know when you want to make this Cyclades Islands’ trekking program in Greece and we’ll start organizing your next unforgettable trip!

And if you want to try other adventures in this Greece, please check my Climbing and sailing on Kalymnos Island, Greece and my Trekking the Kalymnos trail in Greece.

The first part of the trekking in Amorgos is a ring route, starting from the fishermen dwarf, we will reach Tholaria, follow the North side of Mount Krikellos, reach the church of Agios Theologos and then the Church of Stravros (680 m), a viewpoint above a very steep cliff. We walk a short way back and then reach the village of Langada and later Aegiali, the starting point.

We will cross to the South slope, then reach the sheltered XI century Monastery of Panaghia Hozoviotissas. After a long stop for pictures, resting and to satisfy your curiosity we climb the ridge, crowded with windmills and we reach the distinctive village of Chora.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
