Hydra and Poros, even with their close proximity to mainland Greece, feel a world away from Athens.Experience this journey with Ramblers Walking Holidays. The rugged limestone hills of Hydra rise above the town and the islands well maintained trails lead to monasteries and small beaches. Its not often you can roam freely, sharing the roads and pathways only with donkeys. No cars, no noise island exploring in total tranquillity. This lovely laid-back island, is an artists colony with many of the shops offering highly original jewellery and ceramics. A short boat ride brings us to the neighbouring verdant island of Poros, a complete contrast to Hydra. The quiet countryside offers walks through pine tree forests, some ending at the waters edge, and offering sea views. Well see the remains of 6th century Poseidons Temple, picturesque Russian Bay and perhaps enjoy a short ferry ride to visit Aliki on the Peloponnese mainland. While the islands offer some of the best spring and autumn walking, they come alive in the spring with colourful floral displays.
