Walking Cycling Holidays in Greece
You get a very different view of things on a walking or cycling holiday, travelling at your own pace, there’s time to notice things you would miss from a car or coach. You get to know the place you’ve chosen intimately and absorb the sights, the scents, and the atmosphere, in a way that you never could on an ordinary holiday.
Headwater offer a selection of walking and cycling holidays throughout Greece and ‘Ancient and Classical Greece’ is proving a huge favourite. Roman castles, Byzantine churches, Ottoman palaces, world-famous classical sites unchanged over the centuries attract many tourists every year.
Some say there is a huge rise in interest in these types of holidays as Kiwis are active outdoor types who enjoy getting a little off the beaten track and exploring areas properly when they travel.
Accommodation on these tours is in small family-run hotels with particular charm – from converted castles, to working farms and stylish villas. Breakfast and most dinners are included, making the most of regional specialities, but lunch is up to you – often the experience of shopping in markets for interesting delicacies, local breads and olive oils is a highlight in itself.
