Tinos belongs to the Cyclades islands and is situated in the Egean Sea. It’s easily accessible through the airports of Athens, Mykonos, Naxos or Santorini by ferryboat.
Tinos is known as the Lourdes of Greece and on the 15th of August one will find thousands of pelgrims in Tinos Chora who’ll visit the holy Panagia Evangelistria church.
You stay in two locations on the island. You’ll make three circular walks from Falatados, then walk from Falatados to Chora; the last hike is from Ormos Panormos in the north of the island.
It’s a tour for active people that desire peace and nature and enjoy the difference between idyllic beaches and a rural innerland.
About the walks
The walks take place on (paved) paths, gravel roads and some quiet tarmac roads. The net walking time is between 2 and 7 hours, some days you may choose from two routes.
The paths are good, though there may be loose stones and some parts may be steep. We thus recommend you to start the tour well trained and prepared with well worn-in ankle-high walking boots.
