Afterwards, we will head back to the hotel, where you will have a free evening followed by a delicate dinner.
We will head to the island’s capital ‘Chora’, where our starting point for a beautiful circular hiking route will be. Light lunch will be served during the hike at a local ‘mezedopoleo’, a traditional mezes tavern. The hike will end by returning to the Chora, from where you will be able to be transported back to the hotel to rest, take a break for a swim or walk to the centre of the town and explore its cultural history. Your evening is free and dinner arrangements will have been made according to your preferences.
