Snorkeling and Scuba Diving: Snorkeling is possible pretty much anywhere and, with the benefits of the clear crystal waters, is a great way to see observe the underwater wildlife. However, to go scuba diving, it is necessary to book lessons with one of the many recognised diving schools as independent scuba diving is not allowed.
Hiking: The stunning scenery makes holidays in Greece a paradise for walking and hiking. As temperatures can be high in summer, the best time of year for activity holidays is in April or May when you will be rewarded by the carpet of wild flowers on the mountain sides.
