We had a great experience with
Ecotourism Karpathos. Evangelia's
knowledge about the history,
culture, and environment of northern
Karpathos is incredible, and it made our
time on the island truly special.
Her walking tour of Olympos and her
guided hikes were full of insights and
details you won't find in any guidebook.
It was a perfect way to see and
experience the less-visited areas of
this amazing island.

My husband, 11 month old, and I had
a phenomenal time with
Ecotourism Karpathos.
We were met at our hotel and
given a tour of the island
as we drove to Olympos.
By traveling in a small group,
we were able to get a more
intimate view of the village.
We met local women and even came
across the priest in Olympos’ main church.
One of our favorite highlights
was visiting the small farming village
a few minutes down the road
and seeing dry farming in action.
The tour exceeded our expectations!

We spent a most unforgettable weekend
at the end of September in Karpathos.
Stayed 3 nights in the traditional village
of Olympos, with our own private view of Aegean
sunset, and a chance to chat with
local crafts people before the arrival of
daytime tourists. Evangelia and her
company have provided us with airport
transfer to the hotel, a driven guided
tour of the rest of the
island, which included a visit to the
church of Panagia Vrisiani in Mesochori,
and hands-on lessons in the making
of traditional country
bread baked in a wood fired
communal brick oven.
Evangelia had also arranged, per our
request, lessons in a traditional
folk dance called Pano Horos,
