Hiking Lefkada

 – Discover the lush green island of Lefkada and take-in the scenic views on our guided hikes along centuries-old footpaths and donkey trails. 

The island of Lefkada is a maze of old footpaths, known in Greek as ‘monopatia’. Only half a century ago the mountain villages were teeming with life and the coastal areas quietly inhabited by fisherman. The island’s residents would regularly travel between villages and up and down the mountain on these footpaths to groves and orchards they owned, collecting olives, fruit and nuts. Children as young as 4 years old would regularly accompany their parents up and down these mountain paths, occasionally spending the night with extended family in other villages.

These ‘monopatia’ form the basis of our best mountain biking trails, of which we maintain, and as a result our guides are privileged enough to know these great hiking routes.

Guided hikes are available on request throughout the summer and start from our base nestled in the olive groves behind the village of Nidri. Prices start from 15€ per person depending on the size of the group.
