Local experiences

Brief information regarding the activities

Sithon Holidays team has noticed the intense interest of many tourists to gain an experience during their stay, therefore we decided to organize several meetings with locals who love their area and activities so that way they can transfer their knowledge and love for them. You can see our activities below and book one or more that might interest you as well.
