This island is a fantastic combination of a wild nature and transparent blue sea. Nigel Tutt, our guide, was MORE THAN FANTASTIC and carefully guided us through all different paths, via the mountains and the seaside, with amazing sunsets and lovely Greek people. If you like the sea and want to awake your body with long walks, this is a must for escaping from stress, hard work loads and crazy city life! One week of paradise, YES, YOU CAN! BOOK IT :)

Really enjoyed this holiday. The walks were interesting on old donkey paths and footpaths, some a little more challenging than others, but a reasonable level of fitness is all that is required. Being out in the open countryside with amazing views was just lovely. The knowledge imparted by our guides, Nigel and Katerina, was excellent. A great experience.

A great walking holiday for reasonably fit Grecophiles. Katerina, who led most of our walks, is a native Kyhnian with in-depth knowledge of the history of the island and a passion for Kythnian life. Nigel, who makes everything possible, is a kind and adaptable host, who turned up exactly when he said he would. We enjoyed seeing the landscape, traditional villages and archaeology and eating the varied Kythnian food with Nigel in tavernas carefully selected by him. Nigel has more walks listed in his book than we had days to do them on this organised holiday, so we hope to return before long. Oh, and the empty beaches are also lovely!

We were attracted to this walking week by the description in the Sunvil brochure. We were met at the port by Nigel who took us to our hotel in Chora. As the ferry company had changed the ferry times we actually started walking after our second breakfast!! The walking was interesting and varied showing us quite a lot of the northern part of the island. The weather was around 4 to 5 degrees C above the norm and initially we found the heat a little debilitating. However Higel was aware of our shortcomings and adjusted the walks accordingly. The walking package also inluded light lunches and taverna meals in the evenings; the highlight was the 'fish and chips' at the Ostria in Mericha. All walks either ended or had a stop on a beach for swimming and this made the week for my wife. It transpired that the week we were there we were the only two doing the walking week. Whilst this was fine for us, we did appreciate that Nigel only has us for company - poor chap! Due to other demands we were only guided by Katerina on one day,. Both guides knew the routes, the level of difficulty to be experienced and the history of the island. Visits were made to interesting historical sites, honey farm and a festival. All in all we thought the week was good value and would happily reccomend it.

Hikking to orias castle was the highlight of our visit in kythnos

It was a little bit difficult to find the right path but it definately worth it

The hikking to orias castle is 30 minutes walk

" watch out " follow the white spots on the rocks and the path will be easy

Try to make it there for sunset and beware that you need 30 minutes hikking to go back so don't leave too late ( if you want to see where you're walking )
