Trekking Hellas Guides
Hello everybody !
Born and raised in Athens, I studied tourism and I can never remember of myself away from nature and travels. For me this is a natural way of living. As I never tried to resist the temptation to share my passion and what excites me with others, the call of Trekking Hellas was just the right one for me ! Working as a guide in the Greek mainland and the islands, I share with our guests my love for the culture, customs, scents, tastes and traditions of our country.
Join me, another exciting journey is just ready to start !
My name is Archelaos, I am half Greek half German and I grew up in the beautiful city of Athens, Greece.Ever since my childhood i’ve been looking for the frequent contact with our mother nature. I love doing outdoor activities like climbing, biking and hiking and I feel blessed for having the chance to turn my hobby into my job.
There is nothing better than exploring nature’s gifts and sharing them with other people.

“I am an outdoor adventure guide, passionate about guiding travelers in my country. I have been leading hiking tours since 2014 in the Greek mainland and the islands. As an anthropologist, with an extended interest about the Greek history and culture, my top priority is to inspire and instill my guests with enthusiasm about the insights of the Greek reality.”
I was born and grew up in a small village in Zakynthos island and from my childhood I have been exploring nature. I have studied accounting but all my hobbies are outdoor activities like rock climbing, mountaineering and cycling. My passion is travelling and getting in touch with different cultures. I have been a member of Trekking Hellas since 2017 when I started guiding cycle trips and I am happy to share the beauties of Greece with other people.
Having studied Finance and worked in the banking and marketing field, soon I realized that an office job is not suitable for me. I have always been passionate when it comes to travelling and working in Trekking Hellas is the best combination of work and pleasure. Being a tour guide, I feel that my job is much more than coordinating itineraries. It is about treating clients as guests, trying to inspire them, infuse them with enthusiasm and knowledge and give them a reason to love the country they visit.
I studied International Business and have a Master in Marketing and Advertising. I have circled around Tourism for many years but didn’t stop experimenting with other Industries until I finally decided that that’s my love. The bug for travelling and getting to know other cultures was inherited, since I was little, from my parents who taught me to respect and accept everyone and everything that life has to offer. Through the years, I have lived in different countries and tried different sports. My passion for Greece, nature, culture and food is something that I am always willing to share with the most original way.
Being a member of the World Scouts since 1991 was just the motive to get out!
I am happier when I am outside, in the wilderness, especially sleeping in a tent somewhere. I have studied Interior Design and I still practice it when I am not guiding. In between my trips you will find me reading, doing DIY, listening to music, watching films and dancing. Greece is a powerful and a magical place. Working as a guide here, allows me to discover some of the remotest corners of our beautiful country and share them with all sorts of people. I am very lucky that I have the chance to see people relax, have fun, enjoy nature and listen to their stories.
