We offer a variety of outdoor activities to our visitors. Hiking is definitely the best way to discover Tinos.

If you like walking untouched “handmade” paths in the countryside and want to explore the unique landscapes of the island, then Porto Vidali is the best starting point.

We are at your disposal to suggest you the best hiking trails and to provide you with the appropriate information material and auxiliary maps (in printed or electronic form). We have hiking equipment such as backpacks, hiking sticks, raincoats as well as a fully equipped first aid kit.

We can also offer you a healthy lunch in a package to enjoy during the hike. (*)
 When you return from your hike you can wash your shoes and dry your clothes.

If you wish, you can be accompanied by one of the experienced and independent drivers we work with, who will give you a lot of interesting information and will reveal hidden secrets of the routes. The hiking guides we work with are certified by RTI – Rescue Training International to provide first aid. (*)

You can start your day with a nutritious breakfast of local products, which will give you all the energy needed for a hike. (*)
