Walking holidays

Azores Walking Holidays

The islands of the Azores, with their mild climate (day time temperature ranging from 14-22 degrees), are the most wonderful islands for walking.  The volcanic formation of the islands has endowed them with a spectacular natural beauty. Vast craters nurturing glistening blue lakes, sheer black cliffs falling into the ocean, lush rolling valleys and hot mineral springs and geysers combine to form a truly diverse scenery found nowhere else in the world.
 
Greece Walking Holidays

Find the 'real' Greece on a walking holiday with Sunvil.

Greece is famous for its good walking, especially in early and late season. Guided walks can be pre-booked in Alonissos. Our holidays to Amorgos include a ‘Walkers Guidebook’, with the authors on hand to lead you if you wish.
 
Guided walks from resort are also available locally in Chrani (South Peloponnese), Tilos, Ithaca, Eastern Pelion and Skopelos, and a free walking booklet is available for Western Pelion, Mani (Stoupa and Kardamili) and Parga. In addition to the above areas, good independent walking opportunities will be found especially in Andros, Corfu, Crete, Halkidiki, Ikaria, Meganissi, Naxos and Samos.

 

Walking holidays with Anna

One of the best ways to truly escape the demands of everyday life is to immerse oneself in the atmosphere and scenery of a place with a culture different to our own. A walking holiday offers the chance to become intimately acquainted with and enjoy every element of Greece’s local beauty and history. Trekking from one place to another lets us discover places which are largely unseen by most people, and to experience the beauty and silence of more remote corners of the countryside. It also gives an immense sense of achievement, and the kind of satisfying tiredness at the end of a walking day that brings deep relaxation.
 
One of the beauties of Greece is that many of her treasures lie hidden in olive groves or on steep mountainsides: crumbling Byzantine chapels, fragments of Mycenaean temples, caves, tiny bays without a soul in sight – all there waiting for the more intrepid traveller to discover.

Anna will only be running 2 of her 4 walking holidays in Greece in 2014, but she may be able to offer other departures in Mani during the autumn/winter months on request.

Towers, caves and mulepaths of the Mani (9 day trip)
8-16 March 2014

Tinos: Island of dovecotes and rock sculpture (9 day trip)
3-11 May 2014

Anna is also offering her trip to Northern Ethiopia in November 2014.

Please note: flights are not included in the cost. Flights should be booked to Athens (plus domestic flight to Ioannina for the Pindos trip). Pretty much everything else is included in the price - nearly all meals, entrance fees, accommodation etc. See individual itineraries for further information.

If you have any queries regarding any of the trips featured, or have any specific questions about dietary requirements or allergies etc please email Anna, and she will endeavour to respond as quickly as possible.

Walking with Anna

Anna Butcher has worked as a freelance mountain guide in Greece for over fifteen years.  Her walks aim to combine the most magnificent scenery with any unexpected jewels of history that might be hiding in the undergrowth or around the next headland. Add to that the opportunity to stay in unusual, unique and characterful guest houses (towers, Ottoman mansions, mountain lodges), excellent and unusual Greek cuisine which is often prepared especially for the group, with some fine wines, and you have a recipe for a deep insight into the ‘real’ Greece.
