Walking in the countryside of Paros
Discover the essence of the Cyclades
Walking in the countryside of Paros

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… Discover discreet sandy beaches and the wild beauty of rocky shores… Smell the herbs and the flowers… Taste local olive oil, cheese & wine coming from a tradition of centuries… 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, guide-owned cooperative enterprise that offers a number of walking, hiking, cycling and cultural tours on the islands of Paros and Antiparos. We aim is to give visitors an opportunity to enjoy and appreciate our islands’ nature, landscape, traditions and taste,in a most authentic way.

From April to October, we can organize a private walking or Bike & Hike tour to suit your group’ fitness levels and range of interests. Easy to moderate difficulty, our suggested tours
can include 4 to 15 km of walking and be 2 to 6h long.
Our tours are meant to be Eco-Tours, so your local, well-versed escort will give you (in fluent English, or passable French and Italian) the information you need to appreciate the natural environment, the landscape, the history and the current situation of the place and the people.

We also offer our signature Drive &Walk tours, private island discovery or theme tours, which can include tasting of local wines & produce, traditional taverna lunches or our special “Taste of Paros” wine picnic, for those seeking a fuller Cycladic island experience.
Finally, on certain Thursdays & Sundays , we organize mixed-group walking tours, which go ahead with a minimum of 4 participants, please see our upcoming tours program.

‘You never know a place unless you have walked it’ – or cycled it, we might add. Join Paros Hikes to discover the beauty of our islands!
