About this holiday

Triangular in shape, beautiful Zakynthos has 3 distinct geographical areas: the north west is mountainous with quaint traditional mountain villages, the central region is a fertile plain rich with olive groves and vineyards and the south east is characterised by stunning beaches.

Our 4 guided walks will give us an opportunity to enjoy a combination of the island’s stunning coastal and fertile inland scenery:

Ano Gerakari

This hike is a beautiful route over narrow paved lanes through lemon groves and vineyards. In the distance we can see the spire of the small Ano Gerakari church, proudly built on top of a hill. The path meanders uphill, where we eventually we arrive at Saint Nikolas church, rewarded with an amazing view.

A walk to Zakynthos Town

Our walk starts along the beautiful Blue Flagged beach at Tsilivi, before heading inland to Bochali. Here the locals gather in the Square to see and be seen, a perfect spot to have a rest and enjoy the impressive view over the capital below. Continuing to Zakynthos Town, we take a stroll through this elegant Venetian-styled town with its maze of narrow streets, buzzing boulevards before heading back via Lofos Strani Park, where the Greek National Anthem was composed.

Keri

We transfer to the Keri peninsula, on the south east of the island for a spectacular walk starting at high limestone cliffs dropping down in the dark blue waters of the Ionian Sea. The trail meanders over goat herder tracks and we’ll pass a hidden grove with the oldest olive trees of the island before we reach the small harbour of the village of Limni Keri.

Loucha to Agia Marina

This beautiful walk takes us through the hidden valley of Loucha. Our hike starts at the village café where you could try a local favourite, a chilled coffee (extra charge), before we stroll through fields of wildflowers where the scents of thyme, oregano and aniseed dominate the air. Hopefully (dependent on the season) we’ll meet a beekeeper and taste his honey straight from the hive. We’ll enjoy spectacular views over the entire island as we continue, ending up at a traditional taverna where the owner makes his own wine, and we can celebrate the end of a glorious week with a glass of his wares. Cheers – or as the Greeks say, Yiamas!
