Your guide will introduce you to the history and geographical features of each island, its peaks and natural sights and at the same time, you will be offered educational content on various hiking topics.
Sailing by sea to our destination you will enjoy from a distance the views of individual peaks to which we will climb, and after climbing the same peaks unique viewpoints will enchant all your senses leaving you breathless in endless panoramic views of all parts of the world.
