Hiking on the Greek island of Kythnos closed its season at the end of October, posting higher numbers of walkers from an ever-broader range of countries with walkers giving top marks on their holiday enjoyment, including a 5-star TripAdvisor rating.
Particularly, walkers praised the walking, the guides, the accommodation, and the food on Kythnos. The island is near to Athens, unspoilt by mass tourism, chockful of history all the way back to 10000 years ago, and boasts many sandy beaches, often secluded.
