      Start at the mountain village of Menetes where we take you directly to the village’s largest church which offers a fantastic panoramic view. You can take the local bus to get to Menetes or let a taxi drop you off. From here we can see Pigadia but don’t forget to look the other way where Menetes spreads in all its splendor with its colorful houses and streets. We leave the church and stop for a cup of coffee at a local taverna. Have a coffee if you want or just enjoy the atmosphere of this hidden little gem in one of the many streets of Menetes. Get to know the spirit of the mountain village where the first settlements came as early as the Middle Ages when pirates ruled the Aegean Sea. We explore the streets a bit more before a small visit to the local bakery awaits (if it is open). The best bakery in Karpathos if you ask us!

      A must-try activity while in Karpathos
      The trail itself was wonderful, with great views, and just as challenging as one would hope. The guide, Renate, was wonderful - she is incredibly joyful and helpful, and shall surely answer any question one might have, which I believe I thouroughly tested :) One might also have a chance to meet her lovely dog! A wonderful experience overall that is a definite must-do if you’re visiting Karpathos.

      Nice hike on Karpathos guided by Jax and Renate
      We did the Lastos hike by Art & Walk. While Jax kept us on trail, Renate told us lots of interesting and fun facts. Stunning views, nosy goats and a shot of raki at the end. If you are on Karpathos, don' t miss it!

      Highlight of our trip!
      We really enjoyed our hike with Art&Walk. Renate accompanied us and we couldn’t ask for a better guide. We felt immediately at ease and she had such an impressive knowledge of the island, we didn’t only see beautiful panoramic sceneries, but we also learned a lot about the fauna and flora, history and landscape of this beautiful island. Our hike was just amazing, it was off the beaten track and we are glad she and Jacks (her dog) shared it with us. Renate is very easy going and she knew exactly when we needed a break, which shows her professionalism in hiking. We can’t wait to discover more hikes and activities with Art&Walk, for us, this was our highlight of our trip to Karpathos and when we have the chance, we will gladly book other activities with them.

      Splendid tour with stunning views
      We (two adults and our daugthers aged 18 and 20) just had a wonderful tour with Renate experiencing the landscape and very scenic views. With temperatures in the low twenties and quite a bit of wind, the autumn is a great time for hiking in Karpathos. An absolute recommendation of Art and Walk tours from us :-)

      Do you want to discover Karpathos from a different point of view? The answer is Art and Walk ♥️
      We are super happy to recommend Art and Walk, because we enjoyed so much hiking with them! It's amazing the passion of Renate and Thom, that guided us through all the best spots of Karpathos. We appreciated during the path to discover some fun facts about the history, architecture and botanical of the island. We joined 2 hikes during our stay in Karpathos: Agia Kiriaki booked from home and after finishing it we decided to join also the walk to Lastos. Really impressed about both walks for the breathtaking panoramas spots. We loved the sharing moments of the Greek sage Tea Time and Raki, because we could know better Renate and also all the group. This excursions made even more special our stay in Karpathos during our unforgettable honeymoon ♥️ Thank you Renate and Thom, because with this experience we understood why you fell in love for this island... and when you love something so much, it's visible when you share it with all the people you meet on your path 🤗 Greetings from Italy Adamo & Jenny

Loads of interesting info, lots of laughter and well adapted pace for the small but aged (approx 60 yo in average) group. Also thx for the small - but very appreciated - extras, with tea and raki. All in all; highly recommended and as enjoyable! Thx again!

      Beautiful & interesting tour with the best hosts
      Me and my friends did The Valley Walk yesterday and in May we already participated in the Wine Tasting Walk - and we couldn’t recommend it more! It is a fun, interesting and overall amazing experience. Renate and Thom make you feel welcome on the island immediately and provide so much insight into the culture, wine, landscape etc. Tomorrow I will do the Lastos hike and can’t wait to try out even more of their activities.

      Beautiful hike with an excellent guide who tells with passion about nature and Karpathos
      We did the Limniotis cave hike last week with Thom as our guide. He is an amazing guide that knows a lot about Karpathos and its nature. He makes sure that everyone is able to follow, helps you on how to traverse the path, and talks with a lot if passion on the things that you see during the hike. The views of the mountain landscape, the sea, and the cave were absolutely amazing. The smell of herbs, like sage, next to the hiking path adds another dimension to the experience.

      Nice audiotour
      As guide to visit the island of Kassos it is very useful. However, the supporting SmartGuide app is not easy in how to use. The audiotour itself doesn't tell what direction to go to. That would be very helpful so you don't have to look on your phone alle the time (looking on your phone = not being able to look around in the environment you walk in). The information of the highlights is given even if you are still 200m away form that POI. Also, during the walk, I took a break and when I continued the walk, the app had stopped. I couldn't find the tour in the app so I had to download it again from the email.
