The world reveals itself to those who travel on foot.
Werner Herzog, German director
Walk or cycle with us to enjoy unlimited vistas of the Aegean archipelago on the hills and mountains of Paros, Antiparos, Iraklia and Donousa, in the heart of the Cyclades islands… Lose yourself in Byzantine footpaths, leading to picturesque old settlements and farms, ancient remains, chapels and monasteries… Follow the trails of wild goats on craggy hillsides and ridges, bathed in the unique Cycladic light… Smell the herbs and the flowers… Discover discreet sandy beaches and the wild beauty of rocky shores… And take the pictures to remind yourself of a truly unforgettable experience.
We emphasize safety, personal service & attention to detailRevisiting millennia-old walking routes, Paros Hikes is a local, cooperative eco-tourism enterprise, offering a diversity of guided walking, hiking and cycling tours on the islands of Paros and Antiparos, as well as the Small Cyclades islands of Iraklia and Donousa. Our aim is to offer the people who walk or cycle with us the enjoyment of our islands’ unique nature, as well as a sporting and cultural experience. Operating in small groups of up to 10 persons, we emphasize safety, personal service, and attention to detail.
From April to October, we do easy to moderate difficulty group walking/hiking tours almost every Tuesday, Thursday & Sunday
. Naturalist, cultural & archeological interest tours also available. Routes range from 4-5 km to 15 km with varying degrees of difficulty, please see our upcoming tours
program.Most of our walks/tours are Eco-Tours, meaning that apart from seeking natural beauty and walking/cycling pleasure in a scenic route, a local, well-versed escort will also give you (in fluent English, or passable French and Italian) all the information you need to appreciate the flora & fauna, landscape, history and current situation of the place and the people.
Private walking tours are also on offer, including our special “Taste of Paros” wine picnic for a unique, memorable experience.
‘You never know a place unless you have walked it’ – or cycled it, we might add.
We know the islands’ countryside like the back of our hands… and we want to share this beauty!
