Our Team

Our team, is comprising of a variety of backgrounds, experiences and fields of expertise  but all sharing the same  “Trekking Hellas DNA”.

A team with a “Trekking Hellas DNA” is a group of people sharing the same core values such as enthusiasm about our industry, mutual respect within our team, love and commitment to our company and its philosophy. Although Trekking Hellas is a thriving and successful business its success lies on the human factor, with all of us going beyond our typical scope of work. We like to plan and dream of the future and our management  is always open to new ideas willing to entrust us new endeavors.  We like to listen to the needs of each of our clients (small or big) and to design the right product for them even if this will mean more time and effort. Our guides will become best friends with our guests and will never stick to their “required or “necessary” tasks but will do much more to deliver once in a lifetime experiences.

Trekking Hellas  has been managed since 1986 by our beloved CEO and founder (Michael Tsoukias) who sadly passed away in March 2020 due to Covid-19. In the same spirit Stefanos Sidiropoulos continues his vision with a mix of experienced loyal colleagues and many young and very energetic team mates.

The concept of meaningful and respectful travel lies in the heart of our endeavors.We strongly embrace and implement a socially and environmentally responsible policy by promoting the protection of nature and environmental awareness. We strive to educate and make a positive impact in this corner of the world.

In Memoriam, Michael Tsoukias 1956-2020

When I first visited Nepal, in the 80ties, as the leader of the first Greek Himalayan expedition I was surprised to find out that my country had many places as remote and authentic as Nepal and so the idea of creating a travel company that would promote Greece off the beaten path to foreigners, was conceived and the next year realized. Many years have gone since then and thousands of happy people from all over the world have visited places in Greece that they had never imagined before. From almost all of them I still hear the same comment: we never imagined that Greece is such a mountainous country with such wild and remote places. And I am also still amazed with the places I discover, either on foot, in a kayak or abseiling in a canyon, which combined with lots of history, real smiling and inviting people make the perfect combination of great trips – trips of a life time. I am also on the same life time trip and I am making sure that you will enjoy it as well – it’s a promise.

My involvement in outdoor activities was not at all accidental. It started through my spontaneous urge to live and act in the natural environment. However an organized plan of actions and the necessary (in conditions of long-term planning) element of patience where needed in order to accomplish my goal. Few people are lucky to be able to turn their “hobby» into their profession and I am pleased to be one of them. Now as a Deputy CEO of the company with the strongest network and the greatest experience in outdoor activities I set a new goal; To bring Greece to the spotlight through our uniquely designed products. Unique because they are adventures we wanted to create. My goal is to give prominence to the close relationship between tourism, culture, the natural environment and local productivity through outdoor activities, while always respecting the principles of sustainability. Always keeping up with the latest developments in the field of adventure travel, I make sure that our programs are adjusted to the latest trends of the industry. Therefore I aim to design comfortable journeys for active people addressing small groups for big adventures!

Born in Florida and living in Athens Greece, I studied tourism management in the university of Kurt Bosh in Sion. While travelling and meeting new people, I realize how little I know about life. Therefore, I am always fascinated in new stories and adventures. Being an outdoor activity enthusiast, I found that Trekking Hellas fulfilled my interests, by sharing with the world the hidden treasures of nature that Greece has to offer.
With an experience in the inbound tourism of Greece, if anyone finds themselves in our “neck of the woods”, get in touch with Trekking Hellas, to show you the magic Greece has to offer.

Since I was a child I was really excited about travelling and exploring new places. I enjoyed every moment I could spend in the nature. I have been living in Greece for 5 years now and still I am impressed by the rich Greek nature.

When I became a part of Trekking Hellas team I discovered that there are a lot of possibilities to explore and enjoy the nature through activities. I am pleased to share my knowledge, and travel experience, help people to plan and organize their unforgettable trips in Greece
