The Aegean Tastes walking & picnic private tour is crafted for those who want to explore and deeply experience the authentic, unspoiled Mykonos and who really appreciate both tasting each region’s delicacies and understanding its food culture! Valuing our guests’ privacy and preference for exclusive personal contact, Yummy Pedals’ local guide will ensure the best possible hiking and culinary experience just for your group.

Away from the bustle of Mykonos’ famous beaches and crowded town, you will encounter an extraordinary serenity and memorable beauty; this guided one-way walk will take you inland at hilltops with mesmerising views and at the golden prairies of Ano Mera, but also at the wild coastal scenery of the North. The breath-taking natural topographies promise a delightful hike through changing landscapes, with your walking guide interpreting Mykonos’ culture and offering a mosaic of local stories, traditions, culinary habits and interesting facts on the island’s rural life.

The path leads past rural roads, dry-stone walls separated fields and donkey paths to a northern pristine beach, inviting you to swim (weather and conditions permitting) or to enjoy the wild beauty of the Aegean Sea, if the weather is rough.

The time has now come for you to immerse yourself in the abundance of healthy, fresh and traditional Cycladic products at a luscious beach picnic under the shade of a tent. This isolated beach offers the perfect setting for your relaxing picnic while listening to the sounds of the waves and sipping the organic vineyard’s house red wine.

Last but not least, hiking back up from the beach with a full stomach after your picnic, will not be something to worry about. Your guide will drive you to our base at the comfort of Yummy Pedals’ car.

A taste of the real Greece...

  • We start our hiking trips at our organic vineyard and farm “Mykonos Vioma”.
  • Dimitra's dad has run the farm for 31 years, he took it on as a ruin and has created the only biodynamic vineyard on Mykonos.
  • We are local hiking guides, sharing our love for Mykonos and enthusiasm for outdoor activities with our guests.
  • We'll provide or fill your water bottles before heading off.
  • We will be offering an interpretative talk on our traditions and sharing local stories during the whole hike.
  • At the beach we will have enough time for swimming & underwater photo shooting (weather and conditions permitting).
  • A picnic will be set by your guide at the beach, so that you can enjoy the Cycladic islands' products comfortably under a tent.
  • Once you have enjoyed your beach activities and lunch, you will be transferred by car to the vineyard.
