As October is approaching its end, so is the traditionally considered summer season for 2017. Here in FindinGreece, we are very pleased to share our impressions from this wonderful first season of ours and invite you to follow us on our continuing journey through space and time.
2017 has admittedly been a year of touristic boom for Greece in general. With visitor arrivals reaching record levels, it has been a challenge to ensure the authenticity Greece offers remains intact.
Well, it seems it does.
The natural beauty and dramatic landscape still make for fantastic hikes and other outdoor adventures. On the island of Amorgos, we’ve had the opportunity to guide visitors through centuries-old paths, allowing them to admire the pristine nature, surrounded by pure tranquility and an ever-shining sun. During the hotter summer months, our sea-related activities have been more popular, with travellers opting for snorkelling, diving, kayaking or paddling, enjoying crystal clear waters and a stark rocky background.
Back in the villages, it has been a pleasure sharing authentic instances of local life. Donkey rides, fishing trips, Greek dance classes, ceramic and mosaic classes, visits to the organic gardens and introduction to the richness of local herbs, cooking and pastry classes, even Greek language lessons, have all been enjoyed by many visitors and we are extremely happy to have played a role in their shaping unforgettable memories. After all, travelling is about experiencing and there is no better reward for us than seeing our visitors’ smiling faces when catching their own fish, tasting their own made local dish or wandering through the serene countryside on the back of the donkey.
From the bottom of our hearts, we’d like to thank all of you for making our dream come true this past summer. FindinGreece, Semeli and Alix, will continue offering unique experiences all year round and we hope to have the chance to share them with you soon.
All the best from the Greek islands!
