Wonderful walking, remote villages, charming coastline and historic gems
Evia is a walker's delight, a real hidden paradise, with old stone paths connecting quaint villages tucked away on the slopes of the mountains. We visit Roman quarries and aqueducts, Byzantine churches and Frankish castles, and often end the days swimming and snorkelling at deserted beaches and coves. Traditional tavernas and waterfront ouzo-meze shops make eating and drinking here a wonderful experience, and we try a different one each night to really make the most of it. A walk down the famous Dimosaris Gorge is perhaps the highlight of any walking holidays in Evia, ending at the coastal village of Kalliani. Walks are optional, usually between four and seven hours long and moderate in grade.
What makes this trip responsible?
We have an excellent long-term relationship with our local operator, Thanos, 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 we chose a hotel that has been run by a local family for the last 30 years and on each walking day, we choose to eat in local tavernas.
4 picnic lunches included in the itinerary for all departures from the 7th October 2012.
