    Lemnos – Rural Charm

    7 – 14 June 2018    (8 day workshop)

    Delightful, undiscovered, quiet and with a rural charm the island of Lemnos lies exactly in the centre of the North Aegean Sea. Sung about by Homer it is known since antiquity for its technological civilisation. Its name, which has remained the same throughout the centuries originates from the Phoenician word for “white”; as it is low and treeless and from a distance appears “white”.

    The Achaeans going to Troy stopped on the island and left Philoktitis – the hero who inspired the tragic poem the tragedy of “Philoktitis” by Sophocles, which is preserved in full till today.

    A gifted place that hides a large variety of precious ecosystems; from thirteen registered wetlands that classify Lemnos among the most important and great wetlands in Mediterranean level; to the severe and volcanic scenery; to diamond coast lines and crystal waters. Everything composes a primitive and intact landscape captivating you from first sight!

    If you are looking for authenticity in your holidays look no further! Seize the opportunity and feel the “different air” – the humble Lemnos awaits!

    There will be a fair amount of easy hiking and you will need to be able to get up hills, flights of stairs, and be OK with a certain level of heat. If you are carrying a camera bag full of equipment you will need to be OK with having this on your back for several hours at a time.

    A camera is the obvious one, but also a tripod is a must. Having spare batteries and memory cards is also strongly advised.

    No, you have to make your own way to the destination, but wherever possible we will meet you at the airport in Greece.

    Yes. We always ensure you will be staying at the best accommodation possible in the area. This means it will be clean and well presented, although in the more remote locations may not be as fancy as in the cities.

    All levels are welcome, from the novice to the seasoned professional.
