There's a reason we've been coming here for 20 years
Sitting in the sparkling turquoise Aegean Sea, Lesvos is a warm and sunny emerald gem of Greece. It is a whole continent in miniature: spectacular beaches, high mountains and wild forests on Greece's third largest island.
Due to the island's size and variety, there's something for everyone: beach holidays, activity holidays, gastronomic tours, nature attractions and spectacular geography.
Here at Real Lesvos we aim to gradually make the wonder and attractions of Lesvos more easily available to the UK traveller. In the map below you'll find an ever-increasing list of our favourite things to do and see on Lesvos!
Lesvos is a dream for walkers and hikers with its extensive network of historical trails that span all over the island, taking you on a wondrous journey through Lesvos’ natural, geological and historical diversity. Find unique and beautiful landscapes of flora and fauna, routes with historical and archaeological interest, as well as breath-taking views along the way. It’s a fantastic way to explore the island and appreciate the full range of interesting sites and outstanding natural beauty.
So, you can choose hikes through olive groves, chestnut and pine forests, ravines, waterfalls, or chapels and stone trails. For geology enthusiasts there are the volcanic areas with the ‘lava paths’ that cross the Petrified Forest, a UNESCO Global Geopark. With so many options all over the island, varying in distance and terrain we strongly recommend visiting the Molyvos Tourism Association where you can get a booklet map with full details of Lesvos’s suggested walking and hiking trails.
Get your hiking boots on and participate in a hiking group or wander by yourselves for an unforgettable experience!
