Who we are The people

Christoforos Korovesis
Owner & operator

Born and raised in Athens to a Parian mother, Christoforos studied English literature at postgraduate level and worked for private firms in Athens, first in education and then in communication and marketing. Having spent most of his summers enjoying Paros outdoors, he moved to the island in 2012 and decided to start Paros Hikes, aiming to do what he likes most: walking, cycling, but also showing others the beautiful, unspoilt and largely undiscovered side of Paros that lies beyond the well-trodden tourist routes. With years of mountaineering experience as a member of EPOS Filis Mountaineering Club, Christoforos is now a trained Eco-Tours Escort (South Aegean Prefectural Administration) and a certified First Aid Provider (Hellenic Red Cross). Apart from English, French and Greek, Christoforos speaks basic Italian and German. His other interests include photography, short films, script-writing for cinema, and poetry.


Lambros Hatsilarkos
Tour guide

After an early retirement from a career in education (another English teacher!), Lambros has closely worked with Paros Hikes not just guiding walks, but also sharing his love and deep knowledge of the island’s footpaths, history and traditions. An avid hiker, he has climbed almost all Greek mountains (and quite a few abroad!) – and as a life-long Paros fan & resident since 1998, he has literally walked every inch of the place. Wherever you want to go on foot (with shoes or barefoot!) and whatever you want to see on Paros & Antiparos, you can rely on Lambros to take you there!
