Do you love hiking in a green forest admiring breathtaking views? If so, the Amazing Hiking Tour of Mt. Itamos from Sea Kayak Halkidiki is for you!
The Sithonia peninsula in Halkidiki, Greece is best known for its beaches. However, there is no better way to admire the coastline than watching the beautiful view from above. Sea Kayak Halkidiki Hiking Trip, takes you through the hidden hiking trails of Mt. Itamos, which extends all over the peninsula and took its name from the homonymous pinewood tree.
Our Hiking Trip lasts approximately 4 hours and it follows the trails throughout mountain’s pinewoods, in an equally dense network of wide paths and small roads, which constitute the most beautiful and unexploited routes of Sithonia. It is a protected reserve with extraordinary flaura and fauna. The forest is ideal for walking and throughout most of the trip you have the chance to admire marvelous views towards Vourvourou bay and the complex of Diaporos islands as well as the Agio Oros bay which is dominated by the imposing shape of Mt. Athos (2.033 m). Mammals that live in the mountain are wolves, foxes, rabbits and wild boars and roe deer.
