B .  Mykonos Outdoors Classic 

Overview

Our Mykonos "Outdoors Classic" tour is a land and water activity tour, offering a balance of outdoor activity, leisure time and culture,  which is geared to satisfy and stimulate both the body and mind, in the beautiful surroundings of the Mykonian nature.

This tour takes place in the pristine natural beauty area of Panormos Bay and Agios Sostis.

We start our tour with a scenic hike following an old donkey path which meanders over beautiful herb covered hills, a unique area which is known as the forest of Mykonos. It is a gentle walk, that requires a standard level of physical condition. Here hidden in the wild forest of brushwood vegetation we will discover amongst the rock roses various species of aromatic herbs, such as wild Mykonian Oregano (Throuby) and Thyme, an incredible feast to the senses, set in a wild and dramatic scenery, offering some of the most spectacular views to be found anywhere on the island.​

The trail leads us down to a hidden pristine beach, where the fine golden sand reaches down to crystal clear waters. In this beautiful and peacefull environment we allow ourselves to listen to the incredible "sound of silence", (no cars or bikes or loud music, at all !!!) only the natural sounds of the waves, the wind and the passing birds. ​

A wallk up to the top the herbal hill reveals the magnificent view of the open sea and the wild Mykonian North coastline, with it's dramatic coves and rock formations, breaking every now and then into small hidden secret sandy beaches. Feasting our eyes on the amazing play of blue and turqoise colours of the Aegean waters we are captivated by its beauty.​

After our exilarating hike, it's time to take the trail back to our base where we will be outfitted with our snorkeling gear (any one less confident may also use a PFD) and head off for our snorkeling adventure in the crystal clear Aegean sea. Our guides will give an introductory lesson to snorkeling for those who need it and then accompany the group pointing out areas of interest like the beautiful and very important posidonia sea grass meadows and various fishes (Sea Breams, Rainbow wrasses, Flounders, Dream fish(Cow Bream)and Groupers) as well as Sea Urchins and Octupus.

For those who wish to visit a traditional family Greek Orthodox chappel, the 19th century Agios Sostis twin chapel is the perfect spot to light a candle for your beloved ones and to infuse yourself in the mystical atmosphere of this renowned chappel, built in 1870 by a sailor who's merchant ship was miraculously saved from the vicious waves of a heavy storm. The story goes that after praying to Agios Sostis (Saint Saviour) his ship was tossed out of the wild sea into the sheltered Panormos Bay and the boat and its crew were saved.

Mykonos island has a rich and vibrant culture, as well as a dramatic geological past. Exploring this pristine environment, hiking over the wild hills and along the dramatic shores and diving into the endless blue, our Mykonos Outdoors Classic tour, guarantees to craft a memorable experience, which you will remember for a lifetime.

Our family, all local experienced tour leaders will take you on a journey of discovery, exploring Mykonos from land and sea, revealing to you the authentic Mykonos, that few people have had the privilege of witnessing allowing you to reconnect with nature, reinvigorating your mind, body, and soul.

Come and join us we look forward to meeting you and sharing the magic of our island with you!!.

During your archery session you'll be shown the basics of using the bow and arrows by your instructor, including how to comfortably hold the bow, load the arrow and then release. Once everyone has fired off a round of arrows and it's completely safe, the instructor will allow you over the shooting line to go and have a close up look at your target so you can see exactly where the arrows landed and how close to the coveted bullseye you are. Then it's back to aim and release with bullseye being your goal.
