“Wander is the beginning of wisdom.” - Socrates We will meet at Kaisariani Bus Station, just a few minutes away Syntagma Metro Station. Depending on the area of your room and the day I may pick you up with my car or a taxi for free. We are at the start of our trail! The mosaic of vegetation makes the region unique and is of great importance for birdlife especially that of small birds. From March to September we will meet around lots of cute turtles! A series of exceptionally beautiful monasteries were built on the slopes of mount Hymettus. We will meet 4 of them including the most ancient and the most renowned and the richest of all! Also ancient & medieval fortifications including the ruins of a tower from the 14th century! Our pace shall be relaxing, we will make lots of breaks to the most amazing spots to share with you stories & history of the surrounded area! At the middle of our exploration at the green paths of the dense forest, we shall stop near an ancient natural spring to relax and enjoy some greek delicacies and fresh fruits! At the end of the hike, stretching exercises are obligatory! With our minds and devices full of beautiful pictures, we will make a loop hiking back to the bus station :)
--> Making people smile is my favourite kind of thing! <-- Welcome to Athens! I was born and raised in the foothills of Ηymettus Mountain. Doing sports and activities in nature since I walked, so I became a personal trainer. I've hiked all around Greece and some abroad, but Ηymettus Mountain is like home to me! Travelling is life for me, so anything you want to share about special parts and culture about your country shall be more than welcomed! I look forward to amaze you with the trail I've chosen for you and to share my passion and knowledge about nature, history and Greek culture! So, get off the beaten path and join this unique experience with me at an harmonious entity where nature, history and culture coexist...this is what this “Aesthetic Forest” is all about!! Your smile shall be my reward and my promise to you!
Energizing Greek delicacies, fresh fruits and nuts!

Depending on the day, I shall pick you up with my car or a taxi
