ABOUT US

Nature - Hiking - Experience / Fora Zakynthos

FόRα started to work two years ago, by studying and finding unique tracks, all over Zakynthos. Our interest is not only about hiking. It's also about history, local society, culture, tradition, flora and fauna. And all this information we share and exchange with you during our walks.

We are now convinced that the mass, the junk, the "fast food" at all levels, is not for us. Instead, we are drawn by quality, by the human and the natural. Walking in nature can be a very good tool in this direction. It revives, it trains and it "wakes up" both the body and the mind, while it puts a brake on the fast pace of modern day life. So, we went out “with FoRa”, we found tracks, hidden treasures and we offer them to you. Promising to continue, not only during the touristic season, but the whole year round.

I was born and grew up in Zakynthos, lived - studied and worked - in Athens for many years.
After trying very hard, I decided that the crazy - daily life - rhythm of the big city is not for me any more. I came back to the roots, with a vision: to rediscover my home Island, to find the alternative and authentic.

I founded FόRα and for four years now, I am giving all my best, so that the visitors meet the real Zakynthos. I promise to continue as every year my passion, dreams and ideas are expanding! :)

I was born in Vienna, Austria. I am an Artist, Naturalist and Blogger

Several years I worked as interior architect, later studied painting at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. I run exhibitions in Austria and abroad. - That’s my artistic background. Inspiration I get from being outdoors. It floats into my drawings, landart, sculpturing, photography and blogging.

From my early childhood on, nature keeps calling me. That’s why I’m deeply experienced in native culture based teaching, talking to trees and forest bathing ;-)

I am a Nature Mentor (Coyote Teaching, 8 Shields) and guide you to reconnect your senses with the wild. Get ready! :-D
