Enjoy an easy hike through the hills
Discover Athens from above and snap postcard-quality photographs. Venture off the beaten track to explore the equally vibrant counterculture, often missed by tourists. Walk in the footsteps of ancient philosophers and heroes. This tour provides a fabulous opportunity to exercise while exploring Athens.
Are you ready to explore Athens from above? Don’t worry, you won’t need to board a plane but instead enjoy a hike from one hill to the other.
We walk with you through the city’s highlights whilst helping you to spot dramatic scenes that many visitors miss.
We start our hike by climbing up Mount Lycabettus, also known as Lycabettos Hill. Standing 277 meters above sea level, Lycabettus Hill is the highest point of Athens. From the top (weather permitting), you can see as far afield as Aegina Island! After all, the myth says that the hill was created by the Goddess of wisdom, Athena.
Next, we venture into the city, passing by most of the city’s landmarks. Admire the temple of Olympian Zeus, the Panathenaic Stadium (the stage of the first modern Olympic Games), Hadrian’s arch, the Odeon of Herodus Atticus, and the Acropolis museum.
Admire from below the extremely photogenic Acropolis of Athens and one of the most popular sites in the world, the iconic Parthenon!
We move on to the hill of the Areopagus, a prominent rock outcropping located northwest of the Acropolis in Athens. In classical times, this was the site of the Council of Nobles and the Judicial Court, which mainly dealt with homicide. From here, admire the ancient sights and especially the Ancient Agora, which is located just underneath it.
Finally, we make our way to the Hill of the Nymphs. This small hill, about 100 meters in height, is located in the northern point of the green area making up the south west area of the Acropolis
During our tour, we have a stop for a much-needed energy drink made from organic local vegetables and fruit.
By the end of our tour, you will have explored the most interesting parts of the city while exercising.
