Philosophy

Hellas by Foot`s philosophy - Discover Greece with an Extra Touch - stands for going beyond what the typical tourists do and see in Greece. It stands for experiencing with your senses, enjoying unique natural environments, their ancient cultures and today’s traditions – all at an easy pace and without stress. Trekking up the peaks of mountains, hiking through steep gorges and on high mountain plateaus, walking through traditional villages, coming in contact with the locals and getting a taste of their everyday life... Exploring divers landscapes and areas with their unique flora and fauna, traditions and culture intimately and in a safe and friendly atmosphere... This is the way we ourselves enjoy discovering our beautiful country and we invite you to join us. Let Greece touch you!

Team


Company & History

Hellas by Foot is a brand by Olympic Wings, a licensed Greek tour operator located in Neos Panteleimonas at the foot of Mount Olympus. The company was found in 1995 by Asterios Makrovasilis and started as a paragliding centre, today well-known all over Europe. Naturally our knowledge of the mountain regions and the weather conditions lead to the idea to offer guided trekking holidays.

We have been organizing and operating guided and self-lead tours into the mountains and the areas surrounding them for more than 10 years. Our most important target is to ensure your safety so you will enjoy your holidays and relax, relying on our professional knowledge and smooth organisation.

With the background of the diverse services of a tour operator we can offer today complete holiday packages including accommodation, transfers, rental vehicles, qualified guides and our local insider knowledge.
