Alonissos offers a lot to make your vacation active. This only becomes challenging in the hottest months of July and August, but there is plenty to do in the mornings and evenings.

Possibly the most popular outdoor activity, especially in the earlier and later parts of the season, is walking and hiking. The island is perfect for it and many „non-walkers“ have been converted by the variety of footpaths. There is an extensive network of signposted trails on the island totaling around 50 kilometers that lead through stunning scenery and often end at a beach. Routes range from easy walks on forest trails through pristine olive and almond groves to a boulder-strewn secluded gorge or a strenuous climb to the island's highest point in the north. A number of helpful books are available in shops detailing the routes. You can also find book tips in our Books section. If you decide to set off on your own, don’t forget to take water, wear a hat and sunscreen and tell someone where you are going.

In early June, the Alonissos Council organizes the annual Alonissos Challenge. There will be three runs in total, 20km, 10km (for runners and walkers) and the 2km Kids Run. More details and information at

Alonissos was awarded Best Diving Destination at the Greek Travel Awards in London. This award is not surprising given that the island is surrounded by the Northern Sporades National Marine Park, which stretches over some 2200 square kilometers. The dive site has many caves and is home to groupers, moray eels, pen shells and red sea fans. The Blue Grotto is for divers of all skill levels. There you can safely explore the large cave open to the sea with shallow depths, and more advanced divers can dive on the deeper wall and search for the diverse inhabitants in the crevasses there. The most adventurous divers with deep diving certification and drift diving training can look forward to the Gorgonian Garden, one of the most densely red gorgonian-covered walls in the Mediterranean at around 35-40 meters depth.

The park's most prominent resident is the endangered Mediterranean monk seal (Monachus monachus), which finds shelter in the caves of the uninhabited island of Piperi. You can discover the underwaterworld for instance with Alonissos Triton Dive Centre or IKION Diving.
