The area known as the Saronic Gulf is located close to Athens and along the coastline of Attica and the Peleponnessos. The Saronic Gulf is one of the most beautiful areas in Greece, and is a beautiful area for hiking all year round. Poros, but also surrounding islands such as Aegina, Hydra and Spetses and the volcanic Methana peninsula offer a great variety of natural and inviting environment for wonderful walks.
There are no fixed hiking weeks programmed, spring and autumn are the best time for lovely walks in the area. You can also make walks during the summer, in that cases an early start is recommend in relation to the sometimes high afternoon temperatures that can surpass 40 degrees Celsius.
We especially invite groups, 50’s or singles, to take part in our walking activities. Of course also people in other age groups welcome. While hiking you discover the abundantly wooded surroundings, with some walking tracks that are also good for some intensive “Nordic walking”.
