Explore Greece’s variety of landscapes, remote coves and the ruins of ancient cities…. walking!
Many Greek islands and regions in mainland Greece have a good network of numbered routes and walking paths. Oftentimes they are remnants of the past, from a time when these “kalderimia” or “ancient cobbled mule paths” were the only connections between the villages.
Discover the “real Greece” while following walking paths through lush valleys, ancient archeological sites, watermills or along spectacular coastlines. Get to know the locals, drink wine with them, and taste the food in restaurants and taverns. Walking trails offer a range from the extremely popular walking trail “Samaria Gorge” in Crete to the trails in the remote wilderness of Northern Greece.
