I first came to the island as a child and explored Lesvos with my father who was a great storyteller and made history come alive for us children.Later after my education in publishing and sports I came back to the magic island and have lived on Lesvos ever since.
I love nature and this is something for which this island is renowned.
Lesvos surprises with a varying many-faceted Mediterranean landscape.
Rich in flora and fauna, silvery olive groves, green pine woods and wild volcanic scenery.
Lesvos with its great scenery and stunning views combines the natural worlds of the east and west – Asia and Europe.
For nearly ten years now I have organized and led individual walks on this fascinating island.
I enjoy leading people through uncharted terrain, making it safe and enjoyable for all of us, usually in small groups.
My walks are tailor-made to the needs and wishes of the participants.Long walks, short walks, cultural and historical walks, adventure walks, romantic walks and sooo many more, all over the island.
After spending the day in the natural world and experiencing the special atmosphere of this island we all, by the end of the day, have made new friends.
On our hikes through the countryside we dicover picturesque villages, fabulous views, hidden monasteries, and ruins of bygone eras. The routes take us along donkey tracks, old pilgrim trails and long forgotten stony mountain paths, sometimes crossing streams, scrambling over boulders, fences and hedges. On the way we meet up with donkeys, sheep and goats, perhaps a falcon, buzzard or jay even a tortoise or salamander. One memorable time in early springtime I was accompanied by an eagle up in the air . It gave my a very special feeling.
We sometimes take a midday break at a rural taverna, with scenic views or directly overlooking the Aegean, we may also enjoy a picnic straight out of our backpacks somewhere in the middle of nowhere in the silence of the mountains or with the sound of the sea.
