We are a Greek, family-run company providing outdoor activities and specializing in organizing self-guided hiking tours. Our head office is in Athens and we pride in offering friendly, tailor-made, quality services to destinations of great beauty as well as cultural interest in central Greece, the Peloponnese, and the Aegean Sea.

 Our story:

It all started back in 2015 when, having a conversation about hiking, we wondered why Greece is not among hikers' first choices, although one can visit places of exceptional beauty. We felt great regret that our beloved hiking was not widespread in our country and even greater disappointment that hiking lovers abroad did not have the chance to live all those exciting trekking experiences the Greek trails have to offer. So, without a second thought, we set our mind on changing all that. We decided to create trailducks with the aim of promoting hiking as a hobby, recreation and exercise in Greece and introduce the beautiful walking trails of our country to friends of hiking abroad. Thus, today, having assembled a powerful team of people who love hiking, we have realized our vision. Through trailducks we promote hiking, share our experiences from our favorite walking tours and on top of all we offer high quality self-guided holidays to unique destinations over our country.

 Who We Are:

Passion for hiking- Professionalism- Attention to detail. This is what characterizes our staff members.

  We are a team with passion for what we do, so we constantly invest our best in it. We work lovingly and diligently and pay attention to even the slightest detail because we believe that details do make the difference! We organize self-guided hiking vacations because we cherish the freedom this kind of holiday has to offer. Self-guided, however, does not mean impersonal. Our philosophy is to provide friendly and personal quality services. So, allow us to introduce ourselves:
