You hear it long before you see it the music of water playing over stones. The Varvara waterfall, tumbling down through ancient rocks is the dramatic climax of a sun-dappled forest walk through European yews, ash and beech trees. Experience this journey with Ramblers Walking Holidays. Greeces most northern region of Halkidiki in Macedonia is the country at its best, with quiet coastal towns, uncrowded beaches, and of course, quintessential Greek hospitality. Walks lead us through the picturesque countryside, into pleasant woodlands of pine, fir and chestnut, we follow forest tracks and enjoy panoramic coastal trails. From the tranquil seaside town of Olympiada, we follow a beautiful section of the 19 mile Aristotle Trail and walk the green Marmari peninsula. At Ouranoupoli, which borders the World Heritage Site of Mount Athos, we can choose either an afternoon cruise to view the magnificent hanging monasteries or enjoy a walk on the small island of Ammouliani.
