Touring is an interesting way to explore Greece and the Greek islands. There are many ways to tour around the country: on foot, by car or motorbike or even in an organized tour. Such organized tours in Greece are frequently departing from Athens, Thessaloniki or other major cities for a visit in famous archaeological sites or places of natural beauty, including Meteora, Olympia, Epidaurus, Mycenae or Delphi.
Many boat or bus touring holidays are also organized in the islands. For example, not to miss in Santorini island is the boat tour to the active volcano and in Mykonos island the boat tour to Delos. Some tours also include visits to other islands, such as the tour from Naxos island to the Small Cyclades (Koufonissia, Iraklia, Schinoussa and Donoussa).
Hiking tours are very easy in Greece and can actually be practiced everywhere. Old stone footpaths are found in all villages in the country, leading to nice forests, small churches in the mountains or secluded beaches. Very famous are the hiking trails in Crete island, Kefalonia island, Corfu island, Pelion and Rhodes island, which are actually signposted.
Bike and bicycle touring holidays are a new trend for the country. Some companies in the islands rent bicycles and organize cycling tours to discover the place. New projects for Greece are also the wine routes and the olive routes, aiming to promote and present the two most famous products of the country.
