What you'll do

We’ll meet up in the morning in Zakynthos town and here you’ll meet your guide. We’ll still be fresh and eager, so we’ll start with the only ascent of the day. From town a lovely narrow street meanders up to a spectacular viewpoint over Zakynthos town. We adjust our speed to the island pace, siga, siga (slow, slow) we simply take it easy. Of course, we’ll stop often, while the experienced guide tells us much about Zakynthian life, its interesting history and its amazing flora and fauna. One of the points of interest is the hidden park of Lofos Strani, where the local hero and poet Dionysios Solomos has composed the Greek national anthem.

Just about halfway our route, we’ll have a break and enjoy a cold drink with some local sweets (pastelli and mandelato). We continue over a path below the Venetian castle, before zigzagging through narrow streets into the heart of the capitol.

So, tie up your laces, join us for an adventure, off the beaten track, and discover the secrets of Zakynthos.

Let me share my passion for my island in a personal and honest fashion. If I’m not out and about with visitors, I can be found hiking and cycling discovering every nook and cranny. My home Zakynthos is an amazing island, there’s so much to see and to explore. Let me show you why Zakynthos is affectionately called the Flower of the East, let me show you why I’d never want to leave this green paradise. By going on foot or bike, we'll be able to visit places no coach will reach. Join me on an adventure, meet the locals, making friends and discover true Zakynthos!
