Route

Start: Tinos Island  Finish: Tinos Island

Day 1: Arrival on Tinos (4,5 or 12,5 km)
Day 2: Circular walk around Exobourgo (16 km)
Day 3: Walk from Falatados to Tinos Chora (8 km) & optional Panormos walk (5 km)
Day 4: Departure

Day 1:    Arrival on Tinos (4,5 or 12,5 km)

In the morning you take a ferry from Piraeus, Rafina or other island that connects with Tinos and arrive in the port of Tinos. A taxi takes you to the village Falatados in the inner land. It is definitely worthwhile to spend some time exploring the narrow alleys in Falatados and discover this very traditional village in your own way.
Time permitted you can make a round walk from Falatados. Via a kalderimi you walk to the village Myrsini and descend to the (dry) river bed of the Livada river. You can opt to return from here via another kalderimi back to Falatados and enjoy some free time or you may continue to Livada beach and return partly via the same route.

Challenge: 2 or 5 hours, 4,5 or 12,5 km, 200 or 440m ascent, 200 or 440m descent

Day 2:    Circular walk around Exobourgo (16 km)

Todays walk is a great walk leading you all around the remarkable Exombourgo mountain and along the finest villages of Tinos. On the top of this mountain you find the Venetian Fortress Exoburgo. You walk through valleys and terraced fields, through villages with narrow alleys and along numerous churches and a monastery. In the wide valley between Loutra and Kambos are the finest dovecotes that are so characteristic for Tinos Island. 

Challenge: 7 hours, 16 km, 220m ascent, 220m descent

Day 3:    Walk from Falatados to Tinos Chora (8 km) & optional Panormos walk (5 km)

This popular walk on Tinos offers great views on Tinos town and the south coast. You walk through agricultural fields towards the Exobourgo and then head southwards, descending via old mule tracks. You pass a few remarkable ruins of windmills and then descend via a long kalderimi to Tinos town. The walk is only 3 hours and hence there is plenty of time to visit the lively town of Tinos, dominated by the big church of Panagia. Or you may prefer to go to one of the sandy beach that are near the town.
If you like to do some more walking, you can take a taxi or rent a car to explore the northern tip of the island and head for Ormos Panormos. You can make a round walk from this seaside village to the traditional village Pyrgos and back.
You walk from the marina of Panormos via a gravel road and a kalderimi to Pyrgos. Via marble steps you enter the white village of Pyrgos, which is said to be the prettiest village of Tinos. Marble craftsmen from Pyrgos are famous for their crafts. You may visit the Museum of Marble Crafts in Pyrgos and walk around in the village to admire the marble reliefs on the houses.
On the village square you can opt for a nice coffee in the shade of the 200 year old plane tree. Then you continue your walk via donkey trails to 7 ruins of windmills, situated like giants on the mountain ridge. Then you descend to the quay of Panormos with its sandy beach nearby.

Challenge: 3 hours, 8 km, 100m ascent, 470m descent, and optional walk:
