Island Hopping in the Greek Islands with Adventures in Good Company

Explore both the culture and the natural beauty of the Greek islands by foot on our Island Hopping in the Greek Islands trip. We will hike along ancient footpaths, sample Greek delicacies at local taverns, sit back to watch the street life and swim in the azure seas. The Cycladic complex of islands is the most representative of the archetypal Greek style: fishing villages with whitewashed, flat-roofed houses and narrow streets, hundreds of chapels, rocky landscape contrasting with the deep blue sea, and bays with powdery white sandy beaches. On this trip, we will visit the best spots as well as journey to the interior of the islands where we can experience firsthand the culture and habits of the islanders.

A hiking trip and a challenge

This trip is a great choice for women in good physical condition who enjoy walking on a mixture of rocky paths, dirt tracks, occasional paved roads and mule paths, with occasional steep places. Suitable for both adventurous novice and experienced hikers, most days the hiking is 3 to 4 hours. The hike with the most elevation gain is climbing Mount Zeus, with the ascent and descent taking up to 5 hours; however, you can always opt out for a delightful day in town. This trip is rated both 2 and 3 because there are options. If you want to participate in the longer options, you should train for a level 3 trip: engaging in aerobic conditioning, such as walking vigorously up hills, jogging, cross-country skiing or stair stepping for 30 – 45 minutes at least 3 – 4 times a week.
