After a day roaming the Holomontas range, walking from hilltop chapels to small settlements, seeing an abundance of flora and fauna, what better way to end the day than a relaxing session in the hotel spa followed by a taverna dinner. Experience this journey with Ramblers Walking Holidays. Greeces verdant peninsula of Sithonia, in Halkidiki, appeals to nature lovers and visitors seeking a quieter holiday. Pine and oak forests, olive groves, orchards and vineyards give way to golden beaches, azure seas, small harbours and fishing hamlets. Our walks lead us around the peninsula following woodland tracks, country trails and coastal pathways. The Mt. Holomontas range, rich in flora and fauna, offers wonderful panoramic views to the coast, and on a clear day, possibly to Mount Athos. Once abandoned hill side villages now bustle with life and in spring time the hills are adorned with flowers, wild strawberries and herbs. We might even see wild tortoises and hear the song of nightingales. We stop in small mountain villages with time to appreciate the characteristic stone architecture, and tranquil churches, stroll on beaches and relax over lunch taken in one of the many waterfront tavernas we pass on our way. Add to all this, the delightful local cuisine and wines, the genuine Greek hospitality, and you have all the elements of a really great holiday. Why not extend your holiday with a two night stay in Thessaloniki? Greeces second city is a treasure trove of ancient sites and museums and you are spoilt for restaurants and cafs. Our independent hotel package includes breakfast and local taxes at the centrally located Hotel Park. Contact us for more details.
