A gently active holiday in the Cyclades
The Greek Islands have much more to offer than most would think: archaeological treasures, history, culture, dramatic landscapes over an azure coloured sea and of course delicious food.
Our week starts in the ancient city of Athens, before heading towards three beautiful islands, Naxos, Santorini and Paros. Cultural centre of ancient Greece, Naxos is a mountainous island (Mt Zas is the highest peak in the Cyclades) where we will discover picturesque villages, lush valleys and sandy beaches. Exploring the irresistible island of Santorini on foot will certainly be the highlight of our week.
The amazing volcanic caldera, the famous sunsets and the whitewashed villages await us. Our time on the friendly island of Paros will take us through charming and peaceful villages and architectural wonders.
Hopping from one wonderful island to the other, we enjoy a relaxed week of gentle walks, fantastic views and beautiful beaches.
What makes this trip responsible?
We have an excellent long-term relationship with our local operator, who has been looking after our groups for many years. As a part of our continued commitment to responsible tourism, we operate this trip in a way that aims to reduce impacts and to give as much back as possible to the local communities, therefore, wherever possible, we choose hotels that are run by local families and we generally eat in local tavernas and restaurant.
Exodus also offers a moderate 8-day walking holiday on the island of Evia (Trip Code: TVE). On some dates it is possible to combine the two trips to make a fantastic 15-day itinerary.
