Skopelos is one of the most beautiful islands in Greece, with unique scenery and vast greenery. It is also famous for its splendid nature and scenic footpaths.

There are many who combine their holidays with hiking, as the landscapes overlooking the pine forests, the beaches and the picturesque villages compensate the visitors.

In the last few years, the island’s walking paths have become more functional and accessible, and the people who love walking volunteer to make sure the paths have signs, as well as being clear.

Skopelos offers visitors the opportunity to walk on beautiful countryside trips and to be compensated by the flowers, the plane trees, the pine trees and the unique scents of nature in an unforgettable experience. At the same time they have the opportunity, through this activity, to experience many religious monuments, monasteries and attractions.
