This trip offers the chance to experience Evia's magnificent mountain scenery. Routes have been chosen to showcase the best of the natural and historical sites on the island.
Terrain will include footpaths and mountain terrain, which can be rocky and loose in places with sloped ascents and descents. The walks are moderate in grade, and require an average level of fitness. All day walks are optional. Grade B, 5 daywalks between 5 and 7 hours.
NB: Exodus also offers a leisurely/moderate 8-day walking holiday island hopping in the Cyclades (Trip Code: TEJ). On some dates it is possible to combine the two trips to make a fantastic 15-day itinerary. Ask a member of our sales team for details.
Normal group size and age
Normally 6 to 18, plus leader. Minimum age 16.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
No experience is necessary; those who take weekend hill walks in areas like the Peak District or Cotswold’s at home should manage a B-grade trek; good health and reasonable fitness are important. These Moderately graded departures are either fairly easy medium-duration walks or harder, shorter walks.
Walking & Trekking: Trips are wholly trekking-focused or simply include a significant number of walking days during the itinerary.
