Active Folegandros offers unique experiences on the island of Folegandros. Love of the island, an inclination to explore and discover, and finally a deep knowledge of the region prompted the owners to find a way to convey their knowledge and love of Folegandros to the island’s visitors. Intense excitement, landscapes of unbelievable beauty, hidden attractions, and less-traveled trails are just some of what Active Folegandros offers. It is worth noting that Active Folegandros is a nonprofit group that works pro bono in order to highlight the natural and wildest parts of the island. With volunteer work inspired by a love for Folegandros, the team at Active Folegandros discovered caves, marked trails, and set up programs; now it offers free material to anyone who is interested. The group also works with all the travel agencies of the island, preparing trails, signs, programs, and activities for guests. Just some of the activities offered are the following:
Hiking - Trekking
Just last year and this year, Active Folegandros undertook the marking of the long lost trails of Folegandros. Routes that lead to unique beaches, breathtaking views, and experienced companions will keep you interested. The routes are specific and timed, and there are trails with different degrees of difficulty for both beginners and advanced hikers. One of the most beautiful routes you can take leads from Ano Meria in Faro, Aspropounta, to Livadaki Beach.
In collaboration with Island Spirit, Active Folegandros offers integrated suggestions for tours which include hiking and a boat tour. The tours start in the morning and are usually completed in the afternoon or evening. Within a few hours, you will see the most beautiful spots in Folegandros, both by land and by sea. The boat will take you to remote beaches, impressive caves, and crystal clear offshore waters perfect for a dive. We have various suggestions, and the programs can be adapted to your wishes. Private boat tours are also available upon request.
For all activities, Active Folegandros offers an experienced guide, first aid care, trekking poles, and videotaping of the activity; you can take the videotape with you afterwards at no extra cost.
