Hike and Yoga Tour
The rugged geography of Athens was partly why the city was built here. Mountains surround the coastal capital, forming what used to be a natural barrier against land invasion. It also means that the city has more than its share of geological oddities, including Mount Lycabettus, an inner-city peak in the suburb of Kolonaki. This four-hour ‘Hike and Yoga’ tour takes you to all these sights, and while most visitors take the scenic funicular to the summit, the walk up its forested slopes is far more satisfying. It is also home to the odd hidden nook along the way, including a secret pond where you can strike a yoga pose in plain view of the city’s famous Acropolis.
