Walking tours are restarting on the Greek island of Kythnos after the government cleared tourism to go ahead 15 May, says Kythnos Hiking
(www.kythnoshiking.com) which runs tours to the island and to its neighbour in the West Cyclades, Serifos.
In particular the impact of vaccinations in many countries, including Greece, is improving prospects for holidays, though a number of
formalities are still required to smooth the way to an enjoyable, entertaining, and rewarding stay on the islands.
For flights, guests should either hold a vaccination certificate or a negative PCR certificate from no more than 72 hours before arrival,
and also fill out the Passenger Locator Form (PLF) no later than 2359 hours of the day before arrival.
For return flights to home countries, guests should check their own quarantine rules. However, media reports talk of an easing by a
number of European countries, such as the UK, Italy and Germany. We endeavour to help guests navigate these rules.
On ferries, in addition there is a requirement for the vaccination or PCR certificate, or rapid antigen test, or self-test from a pharmacy.
Ferries also require completion of a pre-boarding health questionnaire, which is usually provided by the ferry company but requires
answers from travellers. We will deliver this form to you along with tickets, either electronically or in person.
Clearly the vacccination certificate is the "gold standard" for travelling in Greece. We hope that as vaccination gathers pace more
guests will have the certificate and an easier holiday.
Details of the tours across the island, to historic sites, to beaches and traditional villages with photo itineraries are on
www.kythnoshiking.com as is booking and payment.
