There are many reasons to travel the world in your lifetime, and certain areas should be on every traveller’s list. Greece is one of these places, and its beautiful landscapes and inviting attractions are made all the more fun when you book a walking holiday through the country. Imagine seeing locations in Greece that no car could reach and spending time in luxurious areas that will make you dread going home. Whatever draws you to Greece, a walking holiday is an excellent option for enjoying the best of it.
Greece has some of the most amazing food you will ever enjoy, and there are options perfectly suited to meat lovers and vegans alike. Local diets are abundant in fresh seafood, vegetables, grains, beans, legumes, and of course, many types of meat such as lamb and goat. Freshly caught seafood, real gyro with tzatziki, roasted lamb with potatoes, and various goat cheeses and wine are among just a few of the delicacies found in this beautiful country. While you are there, take the time to walk among the many fresh produce stands and taste some of the locally grown figs, grapes, watermelon, and pomegranates. Finally, you must make room for some of the best desserts in the world such as baklava, kataifi, and more. Wherever you find yourself during your walking holiday, you are sure to discover delicious recipes steeped in tradition and local flavours.
Walking is for Everyone
Walking holidays in Greece can be enjoyed by nearly anyone of any fitness level and age. No matter if you want something slow and easy or fast-paced and difficult, you can book a tour that is tailored to your needs. If you travel with children, you can find a tour that will let them visit many exciting locations to explore without overworking their smaller bodies. If you love a challenge and travel alone or with a like-minded group, book a tour that involves heavy hiking and more complex paths. Whatever you choose to do with your time in Greece, the right walking holiday will make the entire trip more enjoyable.
Greece is famous for its love of celebration, and that love is reflected in the active nightlife culture found there. If you find yourself in Athens after dark, you should go to the bouzoukia, which are large concert halls where famous artists gather to perform for enormous audiences. Dress your best and expect to be dancing on tables and with strangers that quickly become friends into the early hours of the morning.
Go Home Fitter
Walking burns many more calories than you might think, and it is easier on the joints than running or climbing. A walking holiday will let you enjoy all of the delicious treats and foods Greece has to offer without coming home with the infamous ‘holiday weight’ that other holiday options cause. You may even come home a kilo or two lighter for all the walking you will do during your stay, and the tailored pace of your tour will ensure the time spent walking is always enjoyable. Walking holidays are far better than almost any other holiday option, and Greece is the place in which you simply must book your first tour.
