x Strong start to June, July hiking; book for autumn

x Abiding by health protocols still key to success
Hiking on the Greek island of Kythnos (www.kythnoshiking.com) got off to a strong 2021 season start, buoyed by good weather and programmed for early starts and late finishes to cope with the heatwave.
Our aim in the rest of the season is to follow the same course but also to focus on a pick-up in activity in the second half of August, in September and October when conditions are ideal for walking.
We already have weeks in September and October for Kythnos and Serifos which are already guaranteed to go.
This month walkers have enjoyed walks across the island, with one group fortunate to get a briefing from Professor Alexander Mazarakis on the start of his annual excavation work on the Vryokastro ancient city.
For the virus, the Greek government has slightly tightened its health checks for those using ferries to the island. A valid double vaccination or recovery certificate is the best, while a negative PCR test will also function.
For your return home and the possibility of quarantine, we rely on guests to check their own circumstances.
