In order to discover the unique Greek outdoors you will really have to walk through nature. You will be amazed to find out the variety of hiking and trekking spots the country has to offer. The variations in the landscape, even on a relatively short walk, make each step interesting and transform each path you take into an unforgettable experience. All trekking routes can be enjoyed by any reasonably fit person on almost all the islands and mainland mountain ranges.
Among the paths one can discover in Greece, there are the international E4 and E6 trails, which are standing out from the rest. The E4 enters Greece at the Bulgarian border, crosses the country diagonally as far as Sparta, to be picked up in Crete, where it runs from West to East, ending at Zadros. The E6, on the other hand, enters Greece at Igoumenitsa, in the northwest, crosses the country horizontally as far as Samothrace, where it ends on the summit of Mt. Fengari.
