Highlights

Wander old paths for an idyllic week on tranquil Tinos

Keep your eyes peeled for dovecotes, the natural nests of native pigeons.

Swim in crystal clear water after a long day of walking rocky paths.

Receive second-to-none Tinos hospitality in your charming Bed & Breakfast accommodations.

Walk to Exombourgo Mountain in central Tinos and visit its old fortress.

Spend a week in tranquillity, walking around the teeny tiny island of Tinos. This lesser-known island is part of Greece’s famous Cycladic Islands, renowned for their classic white houses with deep blue doors and shutters. And, of course, the sparkling Aegean Sea surrounds you at every step. After a week walking on Tinos Island, you will know it like the back of your hand. Only sleeping in two towns, you’ll get familiar with two villages, meeting locals, and finding your favourite restaurants, viewpoints, and alleyways.

While walking around this island, soak up the quintessential Greek scenery. Every village is comprised of a smattering of white buildings, stacked on a hillside, connected by narrow alleys. You’ll visit a couple of villages where the locals produce handicrafts and another where marble is the claim to fame. Enjoy the warm weather, magical sunrises, sunsets, and wander on Tinos Island at your own pace on the Walking Tinos Island Tour.

Walking Tinos Island Tour Itinerary

Day 1 Arrive on Tinos Island

You made it! You’re in one of the most world-renowned areas of Greece: the Cyclades. Once you arrive on Tinos island, take a taxi to the small village of Falatados in the centre of the island. Be wowed by the smattering of typical white houses hugging the hillside.

Once you settle into your hotel, wander the narrow alleyways, soak up the Greek island vibes and get a taste of the cuisine you’ll enjoy for the next week.

You’ll be rewarded with some breathtaking views along the way, and (bonus!) most of the path is downhill. Because it’s not very far, you’ll arrive in Tinos Chora with plenty of time to explore this charming seaside village.

Check out Panagia Church, or if you want some beach time, head to the sparkling sea.

Starting your last full day with a yummy breakfast, head to the marina once you’ve digested to complete a quick circuit around Tinos Chora. Your first break will be in Pyrgos, a village known for its marble craftsmen. Admire the stunning marble steps in town, and visit the marble museum if you want. Sip a coffee on a marble terrace, then continue on old farmer paths dotted with windmill ruins, walk downhill to Panormos and relax on its sandy beach. Return to Tinos Chora for your final night on this idyllic island.
