Dimitris Zografos

I have organised my first adventure ski trip in mount Parnassos for my classmates at the age of 14. One year later, I was lucky enough to surf in Oahu Hawaii. Since then I have never stopped exploring the world, and have dedicated my life in discovering how travel shapes our personalities and our relationships. How we become better and transform ourselves and others through travel. This journey is an ongoing process during which my goal is to evolve together why all those who share similar values.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"We specialize in both yachting and land tours, in the best locations that Greece has to offer whether this is around Athens, Central and northern Greece, the Cyclades or the Ionian Islands, the Peloponnese and Crete. We like to dig deeper and explore the hidden treasures of each place even if it is a popular destination.

I have always been trying to combine my travels with certain activities that will allow me to experience the destination from a unique perspective. I found this so much rewarding since it allows me to connect easier and truly with local people. My favorite activities are walking, hiking, sailing, biking, sea-kayak, stand up paddle board (SUP), surfing, Yoga, ski/Snowboard and practically everything which extends the dimensions of the journey. In addition, I am very fond of history and culture, which is a prerequisite for a holistic experience."

How did you get involved in travel?

"Starting at the age of 18, I had the chance to work for several summer seasons at a small hotel business which belonged to my uncle. I was involved practically in everything, from being a receptionist and concierge to negotiating collaborations with travel agencies. I also had the chance to be in charge of several day tours around the coastal area the hotel was located. This experience, interacting with people and sharing my local knowledge, was the turning point that made me realise that this is what I would like to do for a leaving. "

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"It was in 2008 when I joined a group of 10 friends to Morocco surfing. We met a local surfer who we became friends with after the second day. Since it was Easter time in Greece, we came up with the idea of having a big BBQ at his place, a tiny house in the middle of nowhere. Some of us went to the woods to gather wood for the fireplace and others went to a big open market to buy the ingredients. We ended up spending the night at his place telling stories about us and our countries and gazing the stars of the clear Moroccan skies..."
