Overview

You will meet your expert guide in the beautiful rural village of Monolithos, on the undeveloped and as yet unspoilt western side of the island. The summit of Akramitis, the second highest in Rhodes, is your goal for today!

The hike gradually ascends on green slopes under cypress trees overlooking the bay of Apollakia. Soon the hiking trail becomes more demanding as you start to clamber over the rocks that make up your path. Wherever you look there are amazing photo opportunities on Hiking Tour Akramitis Mountain. You get to see the surrounding area from the best angles possible. After the most strenuous stint, you find yourself surrounded by colourful and scented shrubs and herbs. This meadow like area leads you to the first stop of the day – the tiny old chapel of St John. Here you will have a welcome snack enjoying one of the pies Greece is famous for and then it’s onwards and upwards to the top.

Just before you arrive, you find yourself again scrambling over rocks for a short time but once you reach the summit you will be over lost for words. From the top of the mountain, you get to see both sides of Rhodes, the nearby islands, the lake in Apollakia, Attaviros (the highest mountain on Rhodes) and inland Rhodes.

Hiking Tour Akramitis Mountain boasts something for everyone from experienced hikers to more basic levels. Your guide will make sure everyone walks at a comfortable pace.

This hiking tour takes you through a variety of surroundings. In Spring, pretty flowers, fragrant herbs and rare Rhodian Orchids line your way. Akramitis may not be the highest mountain of Rhodes, but its breathtaking sheer drops at the summit, dense tree shade and ever changing surroundings more than make up for its lack in height. What’s more, it is due to this tree shade and the pleasant breeze in these parts that you can enjoy a hiking tour even in warmer temperatures.

You will follow a different route on the way down during Hiking Tour Akramitis Mountain, one that takes you through a forest of tall pine trees. This hiking tour is ideal for anybody who likes to go off the beaten track and more experienced hikers will certainly be glad they came!
