8 day Walking and Activity Holiday on Lefkada Island
Your walking holiday in Greece will be set on the scenic island of Lefkada in the Ionian. The island still holds on to its traditional customs and maintains its natural environment, a true paradise for hiking! The mountains and the valleys are carpeted in wild flowers and herbs, perfuming the paths we walk. We will come across natural springs that feed the evergreen and deciduous trees and plants that cover Lefkada island and the wider Western Greece region. We will pass through villages that still live with the rhythm of their agricultural activities such as lentil, grape and olive harvests. We will see domesticated animals such as sheep and goat herds, sometimes cows and on occasion a donkey either laden or grazing. This Western region of Greece has Protected Bird and Wildlife areas for the varied bird populations both visiting and resident. Migrating flamingos and pelicans visit our shores in great numbers annually and in springtime there is a profusion of house martins building their nests and rearing their young. And of course the beautiful Ionian sea holds an abundance of sea life, dolphins, turtles, octopus and a huge variety of fish…you are sure to see some of these on your day aboard a sailing yacht.
