Culinary Journey among the South Coast by Trekking Hellas

Vineyards to Mesa Pigadia

Trail to Mesa Pigadia Trekking.jpg

The tours run every day from May to October.

An overall experience of the real and still untouched Santorini. Walk among old vineyards, admire the unique views of the Aegean and taste the unforgettable flavors of the Santorinian cuisine.

All tours offered by “Trekking Hellas” can be booked securely and safely with our online booking system.

The hike starts from the church of the Dormition of Holy Mary, located outside the traditional village of Akrotiri at the Southwest part of Santorini. The trail while offering incomparable views to both sides of the island – in and out of the formation of the caldera -, also passes through old vineyards and deserted chapels that give you the feeling that you walk on the past of Thira. After arriving on the beach of Mesa Pigadia, you will be welcomed by Valanto, a mama-chef that is willing to reveal all the good hidden treasures of the Greek cooking. After taking a cooking class and preparing all the lovely dishes you will enjoy your homemade meal. At the end, you will have time for swimming and snorkelling while admiring the dramatic beauty of the scenery.

Approximate pick up and drop off times depending on where you are staying: 09:00-14:00 for the morning tour and 16:00-21:00 for the afternoon tour.
