We are going to hike in nature trails as long as you like, visit old settlements and take photos of all my favourite cultural monuments of the area. I am eager to show you where people used to live and how they commuted from the one place to another via handmade trails and stonemade arched bridges.
I am a qualified Mountain Leader, a national park ranger and ERA assessor of Leading Quality Trails in the Greek part of Rhodope mountain range which extends from the mountainous region of Drama to the highlands of Xanthi, in northern Greece. I have guided individuals and groups since 2008. I love to reveal the local natural beauties to the visitors and help them discover the unique diversity of fauna and flora. The area includes Preserved Monuments of Nature and parts of the ecological network Natura 2000. There is over 300 km of hiking trails network suitable for every level of fitness.
All hiking tours take place in the national park of Rhodope mountain range. Paranesti, where we first meet, is a village in the central part of the park so we usually begin from there. We hike on natural or handmade trails which people used in order to move from the one settlement to the other and we walk over impressive stone- made arched bridges, discovering little pieces of cultural heritage scattered among the dense forest.
