Self-guided hiking holidays in Greece

All of our hiking holidays in Greece include hand-picked accommodation, luggage transportation, detailed route notes, maps and GPS tracks.

Being mostly mountainous, and with a wealth of historic towns and archaeological treasures, Greece is simply made for a hiking adventure. Reminders of the ancient world are everywhere, particularly in Athens, where a day’s exploration will reveal history on practically every street corner. We have combined a self guided walking tour of historic Athens with a week of  hiking  on the nearby Saronic islands of Poros and Hydra.

For a more challenging hike, why not take on our 7-day hut-to-hut trek along the high mountain trails of the mystic Mount Olympus, legendary home of the Greek Gods.

For walkers looking for a combination of rugged hills, dramatic cliffs, charming white-washed villages and sparkling blue seas, look no further than the Cyclades. This group of over 200 islands scattered in the Aegean Sea is a paradise for walkers. We have selected some of the best walks on these relaxed islands and combined them to create walking & island-hopping itineraries which offer excellent walking in dream-like surroundings. The islands are dotted with Greek and Roman ruins at every turn and, of course, you are never far from a tempting dip in the warm Aegean waters!

Likewise, hiking on Crete is the perfect way to explore it’s idyllic deserted beaches and dramatic plunging gorges.
