Through our wanderings we discover the real Sifno

Its architecture and smells. Its history and legends. Its culture and traditions. Its landscapes and nature. Its traditional villages and stunning bays... its turquoise crystal clear waters. We created these hikes for travellers who love exploring, love nature and wish to experience the 'real' Sifnos! We wish to share with you the beauty and culture of our island in a pleasant and unforgettable way. Our guide Anna has walked all over the island, in the winter and summer, for the last 18 years. She's a columnist for the paths of the island in the magazine You are here. Her favourite saying is: "Sifnos is its walking paths, and its walking paths are Sifnos!"


Anna Graikou

I was born in Soho, in Thessaloniki, where I stayed till I was 18. In my free time I used to hike the surrounding mountains. I moved to the city in order to pursue my studies of baby nursery. Escaping the city and getting in touch with nature was my first objective after graduating. That's when I discovered the island of Sifnos! The second time I visited the island 18 years ago I decided to stay. It became my home, my island. I started working as a chef and in order to gather and explore the islands herbs and spices I started wandering around the island's ancient paths and mountains. So I came to know the "real" Sifnos. Sifnos with its innumerable trails and kilometers of rubble walls, olive groves, mastic, cedar trees and the protected Natura 2000 areas which are rich in flora and fauna. I walk daily paved and unpaved paths that lead to hundreds of chapels, ancient towers and mountain peaks with breathtaking views! The last few years I've been writing articles for the magazine You are here regarding the paths of my Sifnos. My dream is to guide and introduce visitors of the island to the "real" Sifnos... to its natural beauty and the people who have kept me here for the last 18 years...
