Greece’s most beautiful treks
A trip to Greece is sure to satisfy hikers. The uneven terrain, the little rocky paths and the huge natural expanses it offers by the thousands are exceptional places for travel on foot. Here are the most beautiful treks that we recommend in Greece:
Hiking in Mainland Greece
In the Pindus National Park, in the heart of Zagoria, Greece’s most mountainous region, you’ll discover incredible landscapes and exceptional natural sites. The Vikos gorges are well worth a visit as is the Dlakalimi Lake. Small villages characteristic of the region are charming places for hard earned pauses. You can complement a trek here with a visit the nearby Meteora monasteries.
Hiking in the Peloponnese
The arid lands of the Peloponnese, attached to mainland Greece by the Corinthian isthmus, are a favourite spot for hikers. Many places can only be accessed on foot, keeping mass tourism at bay and ensuring your tranquillity. The Mani peninsula is a magnificent site overflowing with little villages clinging to the mountain peaks. The best places to go trekking are the Loussios gorges and its floating monasteries. The best thing about the region is you can stop almost anywhere for culture and relaxation.
Hiking in Crete
Crete is a great place for hiking, because of its variety of landscapes and great climate. The Samaria gorges, in the south of the island is the most popular hike among visitors. The Lasithi plateau also boasts a number of charming trails. Western Crete is also prized for its White Mountains, and Lefka Ori near the city of Chania.
