Mt.Akramitis Hike is a day guided tour with eye catching 360 views in unknown Rhodes.
We meet in the beautiful rural village of Monolithos, on the unspoiled western side of the island. The peak of Mount Akramitis, the second highest mountain of Rhodes, is our goal for today! The hike gradually ascends on green slopes of cypress trees overlooking the bay of Apolakia. On the way will have a lot of opportunities for amazing photos. After the demanding first part, we will now hike through beautiful meadows, full of aromatic colorful herbs and we soon reach the chapel of St John. Time for a well-deserved stop, before starting again to concur the top. Once arrived, the views are more than worthy. Anyone can admire the nearby islands of Halki, Alimia, Tilos and even Karpathos, the inland of Rhodes Island, the lake of Gadouras and Apolakia and feel like a real explorer. To go down we follow a different trail between high pine trees. This hike offers the chance to explore a totally undiscovered area of the island. Mt.Akramitis hike is wonderful hike for active travelers who seek authenticity and off the beaten path destinations.
