Welcome to Walking the Greek Islands

 Islandwalking Banner

Welcome to islandwalking.com! This site contains travelling and trekking tips for the Greek islands as well as many other islands in or not too far from the Mediterranean. It is not intended to replace any tourist or walking guides that you might have, it is only a small supplement. And indeed, it is even a prerequisite for most of the descriptions of walks on these pages that you own the guide book(s) referred to in the text.

In this blog you can also expect rants about just about anything else possibly related to walking as well as music or computers or beer or other “interesting” topics.

This site is dedicated to my mother Elsa (1934-2013)

RXRA

Found on the album RXRA, the rarely heard FULL 7 minute version of Eric Serra’s “Little Light Of Love” (from Luc Besson’s movie “The Fifth Element” of course).

And my first Ingress portal on Tenerife is also up. This church square with its little church in the tiny village of Taborno can serve as a starting point for several suberb walks in the area. Most notably (of course) circling the very prominent Roque de Taborno.

Pictures from Tenerife 2014

As has become tradition I spend Christmas in warmer regions of the world, to get some good walking done in that period. This year I spent one week at the Parador de Las Cañadas del Teide and one week in Los Cristianos. Pictures can be found here.

Yet another portal on Herm, this one at the start of a small woodland walk. The gazebo has information about local wildlife.

Portal sixteen is on the lovely green garden island of Herm. It even has very nice beaches for those that are into that sort of thing. This interesting little house is in fact the smallest jail located on any sort of “British” territory. Well, I doubt it is currently operational…
