Grecian rambles

Following a trail in the hills above Amorgos’s northwest coast

Late summer in the Cyclades islands guarantees skies as bright and blue as the stripes on Greece’s national flag, making it the perfect time for leisurely hikes along a plethora of coastal and mountain trails in this archipelago. New for 2016, On Foot Holidays’ two-island holiday contrasts Naxos – including its old town with whitewashed walls, cobalt doors and tumbling pink bougainvillea – with the less-visited, seahorse-shaped Amorgos. On each isle there’s a menu of walks to pick from, with highlights including a trundle along Amorgos’s vista-laden spine to a monastery built into a sea cliff; and, on Naxos, an ascent of Mount Zas (also called Mount Zeus), the highest peak in the Cyclades. After the day’s trek, opt for a dip in the Aegean’s waters or a refreshing glass raised in honour of Dionysus, the Ancient Greek god of wine.
