So, if you are planning to visit Greece soon, be sure to check out the following recommendations on the most sensational Greek outdoor activities and tours.

Greek outdoor activities & tours: In Athens city

City vibes: For first timers in Greece, Athens city is by far your first port of call. Spring in Athens is probably the best season to experience it, followed by the Fall when temperatures are warm enough but not too warm to make outdoor activities and tours in Athens an absolute delight. Depending on your preferences, there are a few tours that might interest you. If you are early risers and enjoy walking, our early access Acropolis small guided tour is for you. You’ll get to beat the crowds and heat and admire the ancient citadel in glory of the early morning sun. If you are cycling enthusiasts why not try our Athens city bike tour? Prefer not to pedal? Our Athens classic tour with electrical bicycle takes is a low impact, fun and easy way to discover all the top Athenian sites.

Greek outdoor activities & tours: From Athens

Mainland: If you’ve already seen the capital’s landmarks, then let us suggest you take our small group Delphi one day tour from Athens. Delphi is a mesmerising place that used to be considered the navel of the world. The energy of the site is something almost indescribable, and a must experience, just two hours from Athens city. Looking for something a bit out of the ordinary? You may be intrigued by our new jeep safari tours to Parnitha mountain or to the legendary Marathon Lake combining a visit to a renowned winery too!

Crete: Greece’s largest island is home to one of the most spectacular ravines in all the land. One for the active nature lovers, a 

hiking tour of Samaria Gorge will reveal the plenitude of natural beauty that encompasses the region.

If you are slightly deterred by the difficulty of the hike, you don’t need to. There is an Easy pace route for those who are not entirely comfortable with taking the normal hike route.
