Hello, this is Chris. Together we 'll jump into adventure. I was born in Athens and I am into sports since I was a kid. I work as an architect and videographer but my passion is run or hike.
I love the nature, protecting it with any way and of course observing its beautiful secrets.
In my free time i am always "lost" into the deep heart of a forest or a mountain. The last 4 years I am also a trail runner sponsored by Gore Running Wear and The Runner's Project team. I am a verified climber and mountaineer member of Hellenic Federation of Mountaineering & Climbing.

This trek was, for me, a unique and special experience. Chris was helpful, super friendly, knows the mountain like the back of his hand and above all was caring and sensitive to the needs of the group. We were a small group with varying degrees of fitness and Chris ensured that the pace suited everyone. It was a challenging, exciting hike made even more challenging and exciting by the quite heavy snow almost obscuring the mountain trail but in Chris’ experienced capable hands we were in no danger. Chris was knowledgeable about the mountain, trees and flora and fauna and made the trek interesting at all times. The views were utterly spectacular and the vistas at the mountain top destination were amazing. Chris provided lots of energy bars, dried fruits, sandwiches at our destination which was a mountain refuge/cafe/hostel. He picked us up exactly on time at a central location and dropped us back later to the same place. Such was the magic of the experience that we didn’t want to part and it felt like a group of old friends at the end of the hike even though we had never met previously. I am aware that Chris also does trail runs for people of higher fitness who have different expectations from a trek and you can be ensured that if needed he can set a cracking pace as he is a semi-professional trail runner. For our small group he built up such a spirit of camaraderie and good humor that we all wish to go again as soon as the snow thaws to see the spring flowers.

I highly recommend doing this tour! I did it in the middle of february and 2/3 of the path was covered with snow. It was a great adventure and I felt like in a winter wonderland. Chris organized everything very well, took care for us, gave us advices how to hike, told us some facts about the area and provided us with tasty snacks :-) It was great fun with him and my best day in Athens so far!

I highly recommend this experience. Chris is an excellent runner (sponsored by GoreGear) but more importantly he is an excellent companion and guide. I am a strong runner and wanted to be pushed, but Chris is flexible and accommodating so people who just want to hike or hike/run should not hesitate to contact Chris about creating an experience that meets your fitness level and interests. The experience is located on a mountain north of Athens, which involved taking the metro (very easy) from the city center about 35 mins. Chris was waiting for me at the station to drive to the mountain. On the way we passed the Olympic village, which is now a residential area. The trailhead was meters from the parking lot, and we were off! The trail ascent (to a cafe at the top of the mountain) took about 70 minutes (Chris has done it in 45 mins). On the way up we passed a few hikers and met some of Chris’s running buddies on the way down. At times, the trail was wet from a snowfall the week before, and some parts were technical and steep, but nearly anyone would be able to hike it. After a bathroom and coffee break at the cafe, we ran another 2k along the ridge line to the mountain-top casino where we caught the sky tram/gondola for the 10 minute (free and very pretty) descent to the bottom of the mountain. Chris had food and water in his car for the ride back to the metro. Overall, it was a great morning and a wonderful way to see a different part of the greater Athens area. I highly recommend this experience.

This was the best choice I made about my visit of Athens. Fantastic experience from A to Z. Chris is a true expert in what he’s doing, I felt totally safe and enjoyed a lot the hike of 9km through beautiful mountains, forests as well as through the snow! Hot chocolate and choco-biscuit cake in the refuge place were delicious and fire place kept as nicely warm. Is was easy and fun to communicate with Chris, he’s is very caring, made sure I’m well and was leading at the right pace. I can’t wait to go for another trip with him next time in Athens. I strongly recommend this experience for all nature - active holiday lovers, go for it with no hesitation!

Chris is a fantastic tour guide. I was really excited to leave the city behind me for a few hours to get to the mountains or better to say.... up up the mountain. So I am not in the best conditions, Chris took care of me all the time. Quickly we adjusted to my pace (rather slow) I’m sure you will have fun with him running up up the mountain. Since he is kind of almost a professional marathon runner. He really supported to go far beyond my limits. I had an amazing time, he is funny dude and very easy going. The view from the top was priceless. We went down with the cable car while enjoying a nice coffee to go from the Casino of Athens. I can highly recommend to join Chris in this amazing AirBnB experience.

What a wonderful way to spend some time training while getting up in the mountains outside Athens. Chris is the perfect host, who will fit the workout to your ability and day. Be sure to ask him about his races!
