Walking on Tinos
Tinos is a wonderful place for walking. Traditional
mule paths, some dating from Classical times, criss-cross the island
and open up unexpected views of the magnificent landscape. They
lead to lonely beaches, remote mountain scenery, secret valleys
and many unspoiled hamlets.
If you want to strike out on your own, the trails are easy to find.
All the villages on the island are connected by paths. Ask the locals
for directions - older people especially are always happy to tell
you where the trails start and where they go. Villages are never
far from each other. You can easily visit more than one in a day.
Round trips from the main town of Tinos are easy using buses and
taxis for the return.
Or, if you prefer, you can join an organised walking tour led by
an English and German speaking qualified guide. These are the tours
