About Fora Zakynthos
A FEW WORDS ABOUT FοRa We are now convinced that the mass, the junk, the "fast food" at all levels, is not for us. Instead, we are drawn by quality, by the human and the natural.. Walking in nature can be a very good tool in this direction. It revives, it trains and it "wakes up" both the body and the mind, while it puts a brake on the fast pace of modern day life. So, we went out “with FoRa”, we found tracks, hidden "treasures" and we offer them to you. Promising to continue, not only during the touristic season, but the whole year round. ADDITIONALY Free pick up service / Stops for taking pictures - sharing useful information - take a rest / “Tavern-therapy”in the end / Visits and guided tours (for free) in pottery workshops, cheese factories, oil presses, wineries: get in touch with the local production and culture.

We did an eight km hike with Spiros. Upfront communication with Spiros is super easy. I would recommend to use WhatsApp. Spiros explained a lot about Zakynthos to us and was super entertaining. He shared a lot of his childhood stories with our 5 year old daughter which she found very interesting. If you are more like the independent traveler type, hiking with Spiros is probably one of the best things you can do when visiting the island.

If you ever have the chance to do a hike on Zakynthos with Spiros from Fora, don’t miss this opportunity! On a warm Tuesday in August Spiros took our group for a hike to the east side of the island. I was truly amazed by his diverse knowledge. Because he was born on Zakynthos he could tell us stories about the traditions on the island and he also told us a story about his grandfather and a donkey. I won’t reveal what happened, you would better ask Spiros! During the walk he also looked after us very well, because we had one older woman in our group, so Spiros gave her an arm and together they determined the pace. He told us about the main sources of income for the island and, on the other side, what the threats are for Zakynthos. We could ask him questions about everything we saw during the walk, from the stone walls in the olive tree gardens to the plastic bottles hanging in trees, he knew it all! He even explained the use of certain herbs. And did I mention he has a great sense of humor? Honestly, this guided walk with Spiros was one of the highlights of my holiday on Zakynthos. I can highly recommend it.

Spiros picked us up at the studio we stayed. Told us a lot about the island, the culture, the history and -during the hike- everything about the flora of the island. Very nice, relaxed and funny man, really enjoyed the hike (Marathia 2). Absolute recommandation if you want to see the most beautiful (not spoiled by mass tourism) parts of the island. Loved it!

Recommended by the tourist information center in Kalamaki. Spiros took me to 2 wineries in the foothills of the mountains....including a torrential downpour and accompanying thunderstorms!! A very friendly and informative man who loves what he does! A must for people who are coming to Zakynthos to discover something special about this Greek island. It would have been difficult to visit these places without a car so excellent value for money with him. Thank you Spiros...and good luck!

A morning to remember during our family reunion. Spiros arranged a hike to accommodate 3 generations of the family from 75 year olds to teenagers and gave everyone something to remember. He is a wealth of knowledge on the island of Zakynthos. Showing us the turtle egg nests, describing the geological makeup of the island and the native plants as opposed to the invasive species. Not only did we learn about nature, but also the history of the island even viewing one of the bunkers set up by the Germans in the Second World War. It was a very pleasant (but hot) hike through the countryside ending up at very small uncrowded beach. Everyone was ready to get in the sea. Thank you Spiros for showing us this side of the island.
