Say goodbye to hours wasted on dating platforms & apps and prepare for real, human connections. Refresh your mind and attitude with the help of our local hosts and the guidance of our teachers.

“On the trip with Footour, I have realized that healthy food can be so colorful and tasty.” Flor
Inspired by the Mediterranean cuisine we cook food from healthy local ingredients. You can choose between vegetarian and carnivore versions.
You will stay in a traditional, stone-build guesthouse at Dafni, a beautiful mountain village of Neohori, Adonis and Aladin will be your hosts. Adonis is a great painter and photographer working with people in need and a wonderful teacher. Aladin has left his country due to war and is currently helping out with many projects in Lefkada. They are both well known and loved in the village. Their friends are captains who sail ecologically, farmers, herbalists, artists, paragliders and sportsmen, it’s simply their home.
As volunteers, we will support the local communities in order to pay Lefkada back for its hospitality. We, here at Footour, believe that life should be more about giving. We will meet the community representatives from the Habibi Cultural Centre next to the Refugee Camp of Katsikas – inviting people from different backgrounds to share ideas and create using a variety of tools – to learn the challenges of the local life. We will dedicate our time and our effort to make sure we contribute some knowledge, skills, experience or labour.
This trip is designed for those who care about the environment and want to protect it. It is for those who want to enhance their lives, support others in need and leave a positive footprint.
