Exploring Skyros and Evia on Foot

Explore the pretty Greek islands of Skyros and Evia on ancient paths over hills and through pine forests. On Skyros we walk across the island on farming tracks, hike on Skyros' Mount Olympos and discover the beautiful historic capital, Skyros Town (Horio). Across the water on Evia we climb both Mount Kliosi (780m) with great views of both coastlines from the acropolis, and Mount Ohi (1500m) where we explore the mythical Dragon House. We also hike along Schinodavlia Gorge to a smugglers' cove. En route we experience rural Greek life and enjoy Greek island hospitality and cuisine.
