ISLAND WALKING: The walks on Zakynthos are some of the best in The Mediterranean. The routes normally follow the tracks used by the olive farmers and quite often you will not come across a single person on a walk of 15 kilometres. In Spring and Autumn the hillsides are covered with many varieties of wild flowers and swooping buzzards complete the amazing scenery. Walk round a corner and come across stunning views of the mountains and sea with dramtatic cliffs and caves, the walks on the Island are a truly memorable experience. John will act either as your guide or supply you with detailed maps of the walks and how to get to the start point. This is without doubt the best way to discover and enjoy this beautiful Island.
