What we offer
Masticulture strives to offer visitors on the island the opportunity to combine their holiday with a discovery tour that enables them to become acquainted with Chios' natural splendor, whilst experiencing the joy of natural life in the countryside: a game of backgammon at the local coffee house, gathering nets on a fishing boat or a solitary walk along the old cobblestone paths that lead to secret mastic fields.
Masticulture encourages every visitor to take initiative and personally seek out all the things that contribute to Chios' culture. Many times, however, people's tentativeness and sense of discretion prevents them from creating a direct or warm contact with the locals. In other cases a lot of interesting local goings-on are kept under wraps by inhabitants and are hard to learn about.
We make access to all these, and other interesting aspects of the island easier through the programmes we create. These activities address everybody and have been designed to be entertaining, educational, mind opening, and safe. Some are made-to-order while others are pre-programmed. They always take place during comfortable hours so that they don't interfere with your time at the beach or demand that you wake up at the crack of dawn to accompany farmers and fishermen to their work.
Peruse our activities catalogues, select specific activities, a combination of these, entire packages or just your accommodation in one of the select destinations and settlements. You can also provide us with your personal profile and interests so that we can advise you on a complete, unique and fully authentic programme to suit your every interest, requirement and taste.
