Welcome to PETASSOS

PETASSOS is an agency that organizes walking tours and travels that take you across space and time.

We address people who would like to experience the feeling of being true wayfarers and are interested not only in sightseeing but also in interpreting and understanding what they see, hear or touch.

Our tours might refer to an event in history, can be based on important moments in the lives of famous and everyday people, or explore nature paths and trails above or under the ground. Our focus is on the interaction between people and the landscape and can cover many different human activities. However, there’s a common denominator: respect for nature and people within a framework of harmonious coexistence, which we feel is the guide for the sustained development of a place.

Grab your hat, there’s a long journey ahead...

PETASSOS was the hat with a brim that ancient Greeks wore in their travels or during their walks. It was made of felt and was shaped as a hemisphere so that it would fit the head. Its wide brim pro-tected people from the sun and the rain.
