Hike through time: You will meet up with your expert hiking guide just outside Kritinia’s Castle. After listening to fascinating stories about its Medieval Past, you will start hiking through a fertile valley full of fruits and vegetables that will take you up to the village of Kritinia – a jewel that offers unforgettable views of Halki, Tilos and Nisyros (the nearby islands).
After a nutritious homemade lunch the descent will start, this time by a different path that leads you through a gorge filled up with Greek herbs that will remain carved in your memory.
You will have then the chance to swim in the Aegean Sea and later on to finish the hike by the last ascent back to the castle. Combine the past of Rhodes, the crystal clear waters of Greece, the yummy food and the wonderful views – all in one hike!
