Full description
After being collected by a private bus, set off for Monolithos, a beautiful rural village not spoiled by mass tourism on the west side of the island. Start your hike to the top of Akramitis mountain by walking through gradually ascending green slopes of cypress trees that overlook the bay of Apolakia. Enjoy the breathtaking views and the opportunity to take amazing photos.  After the demanding first part, hike through beautiful meadows, full of aromatic colorful herbs until you reach the chapel of St John where you can enjoy a well-deserved stop. As you reach the top of the mountain, enjoy the views of the nearby islands of Halki, Alimia, Tilos and even Karpathos, the inland of Rhodes Island, the lake of Gadouras and Apolakia On the way down, follow a different trail, between high pine trees and explore a totally undiscovered area of the island.

Eigentlich wollte ich ursprünglich auf den Attavyros, was aber aus verschiedenen Gründen nicht geklappt hat. Also habe ich mich für diese Tour entschieden und kann sie wirklich nur wärmstens empfehlen. Wir waren eine Gruppe von drei Dänen, einem Deutschen und zwei griechischen Guides. Die Wanderung ist definitiv für jeden geeignet, der einigermaßen fit ist. Anstrengend ist eigentlich nur das erste Drittel. Die Nautr hingegen ist durchgehend ein Augenschmaus und bei gutem Wetter, wird man auf dem Gipfel mit einem herrlichen Ausblick belohnt. Die beiden Guides haben ihren Job wirklich klasse gemacht und ich hatte viel Spaß. Nicht nur bzgl. der Wanderung, sondern auch bei den Gesprächen mit den beiden (fließendes Englisch war bei beiden kein Problem). Ich würde die Tour definitiv auch anderen Leuten empfehlen, die mehr machen wollen, als nur am Strand zu liegen. Hinweis: Da man sich auf dem Gipfel vorsichtig bewegen muss, sind zumindest Turnschuhe (keine Sandalen) angebracht ;-)

Trop cher pour une marche. 3 accompagnateurs pour 6 marcheurs ( peut-être pour justifier les 76€)
