Highlights

Witness the wonder of Amorgos on this self-guided week of walking

Visit the impressive Monastery of Chozoviotissa, a white structure embedded in a cliff, and other religious sites.

Feast on local delicacies, like eggplant dishes, meatballs, fava bean dips, and wash it down with raki.

Fill your camera with iconic Greek scenes of white houses with blue accents and a cobalt sea background.

Hike to incredible viewpoints where you can see the neighbouring Cycladic islands.

This week-long tour of Amorgos will bring you a string of tranquil moments day after day. Amorgos is a lesser-known destination in the Cycladic Islands in Greece, but nonetheless impressive. On this tour, you’ll experience authentic Greek hospitality in your two B&Bs and get to walk almost the entire length of the narrow island. Be prepared for a few challenging ascents, but you are never too far from the beach if you need to cool off!

Amorgos has many hidden gems to discover, including a stunning white monastery built into the side of a cliff. 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.
