Hiking Tour to the Summit of Akramitis with Photos

Akramitis tour on Rhodes is an off-the-beaten-track experience that offers an unforgettable day of hiking and stunning sights. Departing from your hotel, you'll ascend green slopes under cypress trees and eventually clamber over the rocks which make up your path to Akramitis summit. On the ascent, your guide will lead you to many amazing photo opportunities of the western coast of this beautiful island. Capture images as a picture perfect memory of your Akramitis tour, and revel in the feeling at the summit – it's a view you won't forget!

After a vigorous trek uphill, you arrive at the meadow-like area of Akramitis mountain and your first stop is an old chapel of St John to savor delicious Greek pies. Then it's time to tackle the peak and to be rewarded with breathtaking views of Rhodes, the nearby islands, Apollakia lake and Attaviros from the summit. During Spring, an array of pretty flowers, fragrant herbs and rare Rhodian Orchids line your path as you make your ascent. Akramitis Tour enables travelers to explore this hidden gem of an island at a comfortable pace with knowledgeable guides.

Apart from offering stunning views of the Aegean Sea and its surrounding islands, a tour to Akramitis also comes with trained guides who provide interesting information about the area. The trail isn't too hard to tackle; although it does require some strength and stamina, the first third of the hike is especially demanding. Regardless of this, taking photos on Akramitis' summit will be a highlight - but make sure to wear appropriate shoes like sneakers instead of sandals or flip-flops!
