Exploring the Authentic Cyclades

Join us to this walking adventure holiday and discover two beautiful islands: Andros and Tinos. Both relatively unknown on the Cyclades are ideal for nature lovers, mountainous, wild and walking wonderlands. Hiking on the ancient paths and trails we explore the hidden beauties of these two islands, the astonishing nature with mountainous and coastal landscapes with abandoned terraces, old stone bridges, steep rocky cliffs, springs and small gorges. Discover the very promising flora with its medicinal herbs and of course get familiar with the history and culture of the islands.

Andros is remarkably green and characterized by a rich flora and diverse landscape, waiting to be explored. It is the first island in Europe nominated with the European Certification Hiking Trail «Leading Quality Trails – Best of Europe».

Τinos is the “unknown” Cycladic island with its numerous deserted ancient paths and trails. Enjoy the architecture of dovecotes, windmills and countless churches, stone walls, fountains, giant rocks with strange shapes…
