Hiking Exploration With Stelios - Hydra Island Greece

Expert hiking guide Stelios Bakratsas is available for guided hikes in the countryside of Hydra. Hikes adapted to suit participants. You'll be in the safest hands with one of the most knowledgeable walking guides on Hydra Island Greece.

Hiking and walking on mountain paths, forest roads and cobblestone streets. Explore virgin paths with dense vegetation and forgotten hamlets. Monasteries, museums and views that will compensate even the most demanding walker. A unique activity that leads to new destinations, provides health and guarantees images of enchanting beauty that each participant will carve out in memory or on his camera!

Your hiking guide is Stelios Bakratsas. This is a man who can, more than anyone, guide you to the most hidden and secret side of the island. Stelios was born and raised on the island of Hydra. For years he has run, for his love for nature, and established on our island the institution of mountain running competitions. In recent years, along with our dear friends, we have begun operating 'Run With Us' for more demanding runners-hikers. The activity happens all year round as is hiking.

Happy Clients

Dear Mr. Stelios Bakratsas. I would like to thank you. My clients really enjoyed hiking with you. Thank you very much. Sincerely yours Alexandra

To take part in a simple hike all you need is mental and physical health. You need to have hiking shoes, comfortable clothes, hat, sunglasses, backpack and light food (raisins, chocolates, sandwiches) with you.

Upon arrival at the agreed meeting point, after getting acquainted with the rest of the group, the hiking starts. During the hike we make several stops to admire the view, take photos, relax or have a picnic. Throughout the journey, you will receive information from Stelios about the history and culture of this island.

Thank you so much for your time and hospitality. I hope one day to return the kindness when you visit israel. Wishing you and your family all the happiness. X

"Thank you very much for a great hike!
We are very content after experiencing a different side of Hydra.

Will be back for sure, Warmest regards Sverre."

Our goal is to pass on our love of our place, to get to know and to love our institution, to love nature.


The destination and fitness level of hikers determines how long each hike will take. Duration, destination and price are all agreed when a date and time are arranged in advance.


As a guide on price, hiking with Stelios ranges from €40 - €175 per HIKE, not per person taking part.
