Full description
Benefit from pick-up at your hotel or the cruise ship port at 08:30, and then head for the traditional farm of Mykonian Spiti in the village of Ano Mera. Receive your hiking equipment, including backpack, water bottle, a small food parcel and traditional hook or stem-style walking stick for your support. Study the route you will take and discuss your objectives before taking a little tour of the cabbage garden and to meet the farm animals. Depart for your hike at 09:15 with a drive to Maou farm, where you can fill your water bottles and, depending on the season, taste some fresh produce such as tomatoes, cucumbers, grapes, figs and pears. Cross the narrow streets of Maou between cultured estates and traditional homes, and observe the amateur local fishermen at the edges of the lake's dam. By 10:30 you should arrive at a panoramic point of the dam, 4.1 kilometers from the starting point. Take a short rest before hiking to the beach of Mirsinis for a swim in the sea. Having traveled a total distance of 5.1 kilometers your hike ends or is about to get a bit more challenging, depending on your chosen option! Option A: Choose this option and the itinerary ends at Mirsinis, where you can enjoy a swim in the sea. At around 13.30, you will be driven back to your accommodation or the Mykonian Spiti for lunch (if option chosen). Option B: For those continuing the hike, take a short break of 15 minutes, and then embark on the most difficult path as you face the challenge of "The Wind," 6.1 kilometers from the starting point. See the islands of Ikaria, Samos and Tinos from panoramic viewpoints, aiming to arrive at "The Wind" by around 13:00. Enjoy a longer rest if necessary, and then head to an estate 7.3 kilometers from the starting point. Pass a farm with horses and picturesque buildings to reach your lunch spot on a terrace. Eat in the shade of large eucalyptus trees and give your feet a rest. Then, continue to the finishing point at the shipyards of Elm, where you will have traveled a total of 9.8 kilometers from the starting point. Benefit from pick-up at 14:00, when a car will take you back to the Mykonian Spiti.

    Francis is a great guide and speaks English very well. The tour takes you to a remote beach that is more popular with the locals. Definitely worth seeing! If you are used to taking longer walks, the tour is not a problem. Sun protection is highly recommended as there is hardly any shade.

    Gibson was a superb guide! Knowledgeable, friendly and lots of fun!

    Great trek with superb guide, Gibson, and well as two fun Canadian girls! The only issue was the trek was only around 5km? I had booked the trek which stated we could continue onto the second part of the trek after lunch taking it to about 10km. This is what I wanted...a good 10km trek. This was not the case and we had to be collected at the 5km point at Fokos Beach? Our guide advised we would have to upgrade or pay more to continue but was not an option today so please be aware this is not a very long trek. More of a walk really. Still it’s great fun!

    Great - really enjoyed it.

    Really enjoyed the hiking tour. Was the only one on it and the guide continued despite injuring his ankle at the start. Loved seeing their farm and getting a home grown cucumber. The route was lovely and enjoyed the 2 beaches. Very relaxed informative hike and a nice way to see other parts of mykonos.
