Head off on a non-group,self-guided walking holiday in Greece, on which you walk from one family-run hotel to the next while your luggage is transported, or explore from a single base. We provide you with our comprehensively researched route notes, leaving you free to explore at your own pace.
With the ancient world ever present, walking holidays in Greece are a unique experience, and are an enjoyable way to visit the frescoed monasteries, ancient ruins and medieval castles which pepper the sun-drenched slopes. In the true spirit of a Slow holiday, break as often as you like to admire it all – you’re not part of a group, and have no luggage to carry (we take care of that, along with providing route notes and ensuring the arrangements run like clockwork), so don’t rush…
What makes our walking holidays in Greece special is that myths and legends come alive, thanks to the cultural information within your route notes. Highlights of our walking holidays on Crete are the routes through the Samaria Gorge and to the ancient cities of Phalasarna and Lissos. In the Cyclades, you can enjoy an island-hopping adventure, or explore Andros’ ancient paths. Cephalonia and Ithaca are steeped in Homeric legend, while Corfu offers glorious sunsets to perfectly round off each day’s walk.

Walking holidays in Greece, Inntravel style
Our walking holidays in Greece – in common with all Inntravel holidays – are based on three cornerstones: enchanting scenery; comfortable and genuinely welcoming hotels hand-picked by us; and traditional local cooking. Together, they make for the perfect walking holiday.
Comprehensive route notes
We take great pride in our route guides, updating them constantly so that you have the most current information and can enjoy the richest possible holiday experience. Walking at a pace that suits you, you can rely on them to steer you from A to B, and fill you in about places of interest and local culture along the way.
The advantage of independence
With Inntravel, unlike travelling with a group, you can stay in charming small hotels and set your own timetable each day. You’re also free to choose a start date that suits you, to extend your holiday if you wish, and to decide how to travel and from where – we’re happy to handle plane, ferry or train bookings for you.
