Even if the rest of Greece is hot during August, the dense oak trees shades of Vikos Aoos National Park, in the North Pindus Mountains, make hiking the Vikos gorge possible. We visited the area in mid-August.
Zakynthos is a Greek island in the Ionian Sea. It is widely known by its Italian name, Zante. The island is famous for its pristine beaches. Navagio beach and the Blue Caves are its top attractions. Of course, there is always the non-touristic side of a beautiful place. And that is shown perfectly through the lenses of a local amateur photographer, Stelios Pettas. Stelios lives in Zakynthos, apart from capturing beautiful photographs he collects driftwood, pebbles and shells and he creates unique art as By Step. For the purpose of this post we collected some of his recent photographs and few of his artistic creations. Enjoy!
Has your summer holiday come to an end? Watch this beautiful video to get in the spirit again.
It is filmed by Theo Timmis, a traveler from Cyprus, with a GoPro Hero 3+ and a Nikon D5300. The video shows the crystal clear sea, traditional places of Skiathos and Skopelos islands and reflects the relaxation you feel when you visit them.
If you wonder how Porto Katsiki and Egremni beaches in Lefkada (Lefkas) look like this summer (2016) after the earthquake and whether they are accessible then read on. As we haven’t visited the island this summer ourselves, we just had a look on Tripadvisor to see what visitors who visited the island in June 2016 think so.
