Compare the charms of two islands on this self-guided tour

Two is better than one, right? This 8-day tour offers double the charm with stays on two separate islands, Andros and Tinos. Both will take your breath away with the classic Greek-style white houses and blue accents. Over 8 days, you’ll have the chance to explore many well-walked trails to secluded beaches, immense gorges, and peaks that offer magnificent views of the Aegean Sea. And, of course, you’ll have your pick of taverns to indulge in Greek cuisine at.

It takes a bit of effort to reach these islands, but it will be worth it once you arrive. You’re far removed from the mainland, and you will sense the ubiquitous island vibes. Walking around these islands will open a world of history as you pass ruins, monasteries, and old churches in rural hamlets. When you’re done walking for the day, you’ll retreat to cozy, family-run guesthouses for relaxing evenings and wake up to breakfast on the terrace. The Andros and Tinos Islands Walking tour is a dream!
