Greek Walking Holidays

The island of Lefkada offers a fantastic walking itinerary for our guests. Our beautiful island offers some of the most spectacular scenery with secluded beaches and traditional Greek culture.

A beautiful Island for Walking

Lefkada is a particularly beautiful area to explore, and unlike many other Greek islands, the vegetation is especially lush and green. The local history, colourful Greek villages and wonderful Taverna culture provide an extra charm for all levels of walker. The Olive Groves behind Vassiliki and Nidri are fringed by various foot hills, tracks and forests, which offer a beautiful area in which to walk. Inland, the island has many streams, gorges and waterfalls; as well as pine forest, an array of diverse culture sites and Venetian churches -
with Tavernas dotted along the way, offering a warm welcome with that famous Greek hospitality.

The island specialises in a variety of beautiful coastal walks, which link the many lovely bays and inlets to ramblers wishing to discover a secluded spot, perhaps with emerald clear waters for swimming, snorkeling and lunch.

Highlights for Walkers

The waterfalls, above the village of Rachi, in the Dimosari Gorge are particularly beautiful. Another good walking area is on the island West coast, around the beautiful beaches of Milos and Kathisma. Just to the North of these is the small fishing port of Agios Nikitas which is a must visit!

Island hopping

We can help arrange a ferry trip to visit other islands such as Ithaca, Kefalonia or the beautiful island of Meganissi, which is easy to do from Lefkada. There are some wonderful walks all around Lefkas and the surrounding islands, and more than enough to pack into an exciting and diverse itinerary for all abilities.

Guided Walks

For a small local charge, a variety of guided walks can be organised during your stay. As well as showing you some stunning scenery our english speaking guide will share a wealth of information about the island history, the flora & fauna, the local wildlife and the cultural trends of the area. Alternatively, if you would like to explore alone then our knowledgable guide can provide a variety of route maps.

Our Free Kids Clubs

Our free Kids Clubs run 5 days a week and all day from 9.30 to 17.30 with a break for lunch. Drop your kids off at our Kids Club at your leisure, or leave them in all day long – it’s up to you.
