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.

Nice hike. At the beginning it was a piece of relatively steep up over a narrow path. Then the hike was very relaxed - after a short break with a snack and drink - continued to the summit. From there you have a wonderful view of the west coast and the interior of the island. The way back took another path through a forest back to the starting point. Sturdy shoes are helpful as some passages were rocky. But otherwise also feasible for the inexperienced, as long as you are sure-footed and reasonably fit. The transport was problem-free. The guides were super friendly and told us something or made some small talk with us all day long. Recommended excursion!

A good hike with tracks through forest and rough ground. Can be done in a pair of walking runners. They supply food and water but I would recommend bring a litre of water yourself. We had a great view of islands and coastline and we could see Turkey in the distance. A leisurely 5 hr walk. We saw mountain deer which was a bonus. An excellent day out in nature with a bit of exercise

Actually, I originally wanted to go to the Attavyros, but it didn't work out for various reasons. So I decided to do this tour and I can only warmly recommend it. We were a group of three Danes, one German and two Greek guides. The hike is definitely suitable for anyone who is reasonably fit. Only the first third is actually strenuous. The Nautr, on the other hand, is always a feast for the eyes and in good weather, you will be rewarded with a wonderful view on the summit. The two guides really did their job and I had a lot of fun. Not only with regard to the hike, but also during the conversations with the two of them (fluent English was not a problem for either of them). I would definitely recommend the tour to other people who want to do more than just lie on the beach. Note: Since you have to move carefully on the summit, at least sneakers (no sandals) are appropriate ;-)
