Walking trails Private Tour


Aegina is a great place for walking. The scenery is beautiful and there are many remains of Aegina's fascinating history, so, if you'd like a fun, inspiring walk, I'd love to be your guide. I can bring along a dog or two too, if you'd enjoy their happy company.

These are a few of my favourite walks

ELAIONA: This walk takes us through the 400 year old village of Pachiarachi and then on to an ancient olive grove, with olive trees over 1000 years old. We then walk down the the beach of Marathonas where we could stop for a swim and lunch. We'll do a full circle, and on our way back up we'll pass through another graphic old village.

PALIOCHORA : Palachora was a Byzantine town. Now 30 very old stone churches remain. It's a fascinating place with wonderful views of the surrounding area.

TEMPLE OF AFAIA: A walk along a footpath in the forest takes us up to the impressive and well preserved temple dedicated to the goddess Afaia. And that's not all we'll see

A Recent Review of this tour

Our tour around Aegina with Sandra was Awesome! She crafted the perfect 'off the beaten path' experience for myself and two friends. We started the day with a long hike, moved on to an incredible lunch, followed by a gorgeous secluded beach where I swam and napped. Such a beautiful island and Sandra is the perfect person to help you experience this little slice of heaven!
