We will meet in central Athens and travel about 45mins by car to reach the mountains of Western Parnitha. We stretch our legs in the small village of Fyli and get to know each other over a coffee. We will also see a traditional bakery with a wood-fired oven, where we will pick up some snacks for the day. Our hike begins on a mellow trail through a pine forest, with stunning views across the valley to a Greek Orthodox monastery. Some highlights of the day include a stunning view over the magnificent Arma Gorge, and reaching the summit of Alogopetra, from where you can see all of Athens laid out beneath you. The hike takes us through forests, shrubland, shaded valleys and rocky outcrops, and through the grounds of the Orthodox Greek monastery of Agios Kiprianos. There is an abundance of wildlife, and if we are lucky we might spot deer or tortoise. Each time we stop for a snack break or photo and take in the wild scenery, you will find it hard to believe that you started the day in downtown Athens.
As a qualified International Mountain Leader (hiking guide), I spend my summers hiking in the Alps on well-known multi-day treks. The other half of my year is spent here in Athens. When I arrived two years, ago I realised that the city is surrounded by mountains. I have spent a lot of time exploring these amazing hills, hiking, running and rock climbing. I'm very excited to show you another side to Athens. It is truly magical to have such vast and wild mountains so close to this bustling European capital, and not many visitors to the city have the opportunity to explore them. I grew up near the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland. I have always been happiest spending time in the outdoors, and I am a keen hiker, climber, skier and lover of all things mountain-related. I am now lucky to consider the mountains my office too!
I will provide a selection of trail snacks, including fruit and nuts from a local market and some fresh baked goodies that we…
I will cover a coffee or tea for each hiker in the village just before we head off on the day's adventure.
I will arrange car transfer from Athens city centre to Fyli village, where the trails begin.

This hike is about 3-4 hours of walking/approx. 8 km. However, I can adapt the day to all fitness levels. We can enjoy the experience at whatever pace suits you best, with as many/as few breaks and picture stops as you want.
