This hiking tour is crafted for novice walking enthusiasts who are mainly looking for a leisurely activity for recreation. A guided walk aimed at families with school age children as well or groups of people with different fitness levels.

If you enjoy walking without challenging your body at a leisurely pace and in the company of like-minded adventurers, if you enjoy listening to the crash of the waves below the seaside cliff, if the countryside’s golden hills, grazing animals and soothing sea views inspire your sense of wonder, this is the hiking tour for you.

Part of the trail is on tarmac, via minor low-traffic roads. Then the trail continues on earth road along the water reservoir of Ano Mera, with beautiful views over the wild, untouched surrounding hills. A mild descent will finally reward you with the stunning view over the pristine Fokos Beach.
When reaching the beach, the optional activities are swimming (weather permitting) and underwater photo shooting in its inviting crystalline water, sunbathing, enjoying the majestic view or even hiking a bit longer.

If you wish to add more thrill and extend the activity to the secluded rocky shoreline, the cliffside trail above Fokos Beach offers the best stage for a short iconic hike, enabling you to really appreciate the beauty and charm of the Aegean Sea and the sweeping views of the bay and the horizon. Another option is visiting the serene coastal scenery of the isolated Myrsini Beach and its traditional chapel, which offers the best resting point under its trees shade.

All along the hike your walking guide interprets Mykonos’ culture, offering a mosaic of local stories, traditions, culinary habits and interesting facts on the island’s rural life.

The start and finish point of this hike is at the historic vineyard of Maou, Mykonos Vioma Organic Farm. Shake off the dust and fatigue at the end of the walking tour by relaxing among the vines at this quaint vineyard and, optionally for foodies, pair it with wine and selected Cycladic products.

This courtesy service is optional, subject to availability and is offered at a first book first served basis, giving priority to cruise passengers.
