Greece

Cyclades Donkey Paths


8 days in the Cyclades Islands. Donkey trails and stone pathways lead to small villages, windmills, chapels, and archaic ruins, always within sight of a vibrant blue sea.

Highlights
  • Hike the charming “kalderimis” of Andros
  • Tour sacred Delos, one of Greece’s most treasured sites
  • seaside dining in Little Venice of Mykonos island
  • Hike to Za cave and other footpaths on Naxos island
  • Walk on a pumice path on Santorini to Ancient Thira
Additional Information

When most people fantasize of Greece, what comes to mind are scenes of stark whitewashed houses against a blinding blue sea. In other words, they envision the Cyclades Islands. The walks in this trip hug sea coasts and climb modest mountains, none steep enough to intimidate the moderate walker.

The paths take you from village to village along routes that the villagers themselves have used for centuries, primarily with donkeys. You are never far from the sea and almost every summit provides a postcard view of the sea and distant islands. Each island is a honeymoon-type haven with romantic sea vistas, windmills, olive groves and ancient ruins.
