1. Skopelos Island: Easy Guided Hike
Meet your guide in the tour operator's office in Skopelos town at 9 AM. Take a 15-minute minibus drive into the hills where you start an easy hike from the Pirgos which in the Greek language means tower or fortress. Walk down a pleasant downhill path as you pass through the breathtaking scenery of olive groves, cypress trees, Aleppo pines, a variety of wildflowers, and local vegetation. Make a short stop at the little remote church of the Panagitsa (Virgin Mary) for a 10-minute break. Continue your stroll down the path with mesmerizing views of Skopelos's famous blue sea. Admire views of Pelion on the Greek mainland, Northern Greece and the town of Halkidiki on the other side, and the Northern Sporades islands in the middle. When you arrive at your final destination, Panormos Beach, take the opportunity to relax on the beach and admire the scenery. Stop for lunch here before returning back to Skopelos town at 3 PM.
