Walkers' World Guided Walking Holidays in
Greece       Walking with the gods   

Walking and Sightseeing on the Peloponnese Peninsula - Mainland Greece

2022 Dates    13 - 20 May     23 - 30 September 

Join us to walk in the spectacular Peloponnese region of mainland Greece as we explore 5,000 years of history. In this land of Greek gods and heroes we visit ancient sites like the awesome Mycenaean palace of Agamemnon and the theatre of Epidaurus that was built in the 4th century BC.  But this region offers more than history. We ramble through countryside where wild oregano scents the hills.  At a vineyard that may have been in operation since the time of Hercules we sample Greek wine. There are inviting beaches, hospitable people and tavernas serving wonderful Greek cuisine. Choose between gentle "Philosopher" walks or more challenging "Olympian" hikes.

At the end of the walking holiday you may want time in Athens or an optional one day tour to the amazing archaeological site at Delphi.  Or you might choose to add on a four night cruise to the Greek Islands of Rhodes, Crete, Santorini and Mykonos.
Highlights:
  • Explore the ancient archaeological sites of Mycenae and Epidaurus
  • Ride the ferry for a day to the tiny islands of Hydra and Spetses
  • Listen to fascinating stories of Greek gods and heroes
  • Enjoy legendary Greek hospitality at a variety of restaurants

About Walkers World Rambles in Greece: 
We spend six nights in a seaside hotel in the town of Tolo on the Peloponnese Peninsula followed by one night in Athens. Our activity combines walking, sightseeing and enjoying traditional Greek hospitality.


About the walks:
Each day we divide into two groups: Philosophers or Olympians 
Philosopher walks are done at a relaxed pace with lots of stopping to contemplate and enjoy the scenery.  Distance is less than 10 km per day with 300 metres of ascent or less. Our favourite Greek philosopher on these walks is Epicurus who believed in the "absence of suffering". 

Olympian walks are more energetic. Maximum distance could be up to 16 km with up to 500 metres of ascent. In spite of the name, these are not Spartan athletic events and the emphasis is on having fun.
