What to expect
  • Meet your guide at the AutoTour car rental office at the main street of Pigadia at 8am. We start at this hour to avoid the summer-heat. Join us outside of the city of Pigadia, following the goat-paths and olive fields. You walk passed abandoned houses from the Greek-Americans and stroll through the fields with many flowers in the springtime and high grass in the summer. The olive trees are offering some shade to take a sip of water and the sound of the goat-bells lead the way. We reach a chapel below Menetes where we take a break in the shade and enjoy a fresh cup of locally made herbal tea. We enter the chapel to see how the locals pray. Leaving the chapel we head into the slightly wet river bed. Historical olive trees and fossilized shells await us at the end of the walk. Once leaving the valley you will find yourself back in Pigadia around 11:30am. This walk takes about 3 to 4 hours in a calm and relaxed tempo making it an easy walk. Distance: 7km. Height difference: there is not much height difference as it is mainly all flat terrain. Read more about the Valley Walk

This was a wonderful experience. Thom is a good guide with great knowledge of the island and the people who live there. Valley walk is a walk that suits everyone. I would highly recommend joining the tour. Many thanks to Thom, Renate and of course Jax for a great experience. I'll be back next year! :)

A great Valley Walk
This was a great and easy hike that everybody can join. Thom is a wonderful guide who has big knowledge about Karpathos,- both the history and up to date information. I have learned a lot joining two hikes with him this year (also the Agia Kiriaki hike that was a bit though er). I really recommend their hikes! 😍🇬🇷🌞

It's difficult to say what went wrong and where it started , we met Thom in the restaurant Acropolus in Karpathos , so you can say ,it started there. Or it was in Blue Bay where Rita told us about Art and Walk.. Anyway we started today. The valley walk day one , oh sorry it last only half a day , thank the one above.

It was a great start after a 5 minute walk , coffee or thea at there house ,lovely setting where you can do the Art thing

It was a lovely tour, with ups and downs but fairly flat trough the countryside of Karpathos between Pergadia en Menvetes , nice stories and environmental, which is a good thing.

It's a good start for hikers and walkers and if you want more , look at the program.

Renate and Thom thanks for the tour it was much enjoyable to meet and here your story of how you started en and where to go

Valley walk with Tom from Art and Walk
Jul 2021
Tom is a great guide, enthusiastic and experienced. It was a treat to be welcomed in his house for a coffee and to take the walk from there. Bit warm so bring enough water with you, but definitely worth it.

Weer nieuwe dingen gezien en gehoord.
Despite my vaccination I have a virus. It is called the Karpathos virus. So I have seen a lot of beautiful Karpathos the past 12 years. But then there are Renate and Thom and again and again they show and tell me new beautiful things about Karpathos. Very nice hike.

Walking at Karpathos
Today I had the pleasure of walking with Renate for half a day at the lovely and unspoiled Karpathos. Not only did I enjoy the nature but also the interesting stories and great engagement from Renate. I can only recommend this.
All the best from Kristina - Denmark
