Here is the itinerary of our 10-day Cyclades island hopping photography holiday…
Our photo walks during the Cyclades island hopping photography holiday are graded as easy to moderate. You will walk mainly on paths of easy or moderate gradient with ascents of up to 500m in a day. You will walk up to 4-5 hours in the day including stops to take photographs, rest and have lunch. Being predominately limestone some parts of our paths can be quite rough and stoney so a good pair of walking shoes is required.
Solo travellers are welcome. It’s always more fun to walk with a group of like-minded travellers.
Flexible itineraries are available based on the needs of our guests. We can organise a more challenging or a more relaxed-pace itinerary offering you more time to relax and enjoy the sea and sun of the Cyclades. 7- and 10-day itineraries are offered.
We have reserved for you a lovely authentic family-run guesthouse at a very central location. The owners are very hospitable and helpful and are known to provide the most delicious breakfasts. We’ll send you full details.
