Neuer Prospekt 016On our way we meet donkeys, sheep or goats , find turtles, salamanders, newts and lizards.  Falcons and buzzards, even an eagle can be  companions in the air. Lunch break we take in rual taverns with magnificent panoramic view or in the middle of nature, beach or mountain. . Enough drinking water is always a must!  Keep in mind that we walk through untouchet nature most of the time! Therefore your backpack should also always have a good time snack Do never forget sun hat- and cream . Swimming gear is  a good idea and binoculars if desired. Do bring a wind proof rain cape for all occasions and seasons.

If you walk the whole program, attached below, one can say that it has all the north / east part of Lesvos  to the heart of the island. You should be a good hiker with enough stamina and  in perfect physical condition. The Island in altitude is often underestimated. Think of the fact that we geologocal find ourselfs in Asia minor. The climate is accordingly  and the sun much more intense (!!!)  as in Central Europe.  You find at Tours 2 + 4 a proposal of a pure enjoyment variant and a more sophisticated variant. You have the option to arrange the itinerary to your personal level each day with me.
