You’ll walk on a network of well-trodden mule paths, visit terraced fields and farmlands, and get lots of time to explore each village you visit. Breakfasts are included, but the rest of your meals are up to you—and you’ll be spoiled for choice on Amorgos. Treat yourself to a week of Greek culture and stunning walks to stay active before indulging in the local fare on this must-do walking tour.
