All about the trip
Experience Rhodes’ rugged west on a private full-day hike. Rhodes' western region abounds with valleys, mountains, and pinewoods, all ripe for trekking. On this full-day private hike, enjoy the most scenic viewpoints and trails with a guide; seeing and learning more than you might independently and ensuring you don’t lose your way. Ascend Mt. Akramytis, absorb bird’s-eye Aegean views, visit a cave, walk the mountain village of Monolithos and enjoy lunch at the most charming café of the Island.
This private adventure begins 700m outside Monolithos village at about 9 am. Hike up the slope of Akramytis Mt. that rises to 823 meters and is part of a Natura 2000 area. The walking paths cross through rich pinewoods and dense vegetation offering stunning sea views to Halki and the nearby islands. After about two hours of hiking, have a break at the recently restored chapel of St. John and take some time to relax. Continue hiking until the top of Akramytis Mt., with great views to the Dam of Apolakkia, the Valley of Kymisala and the nearby Islands of Alimia and Chalki, the perfect setup to enjoy a traditional super food snack, made locally, for extra energy and shoot some amazing photos.
After about 3-4 hrs. (approx.) of hiking, visit the village of Monolithos, a small mountain village untouched by tourism. Enjoy Greek home made dishes at the most charming café located on the square below a small open-air theatre in Kritinia.
