Evia & Skyros
Discover Greece is hitting the road with its own digital travel show that gives you the stage to present Greece to the world. We’ll be sending our guest presenters around the country, broadcasting live across all our Social Media channels.
Share the WANDERLUST by using the #WanderlustGr hashtag on your Instagram, Twitter and Facebook posts from Greece, and join the travel show on the Discover Greece Social Media feed.
Season 3 of Wanderlust Greece sees our Digital Travel Show turn the spotlight on Evia and Skyros.
The 10-day itinerary brings to life to the many highlights of these destinations… starting from the iconic suspension bridge of Chalkida and heading into the heart of Evia where we discover cultural gems and inspiring nature, even an exotic coastline that resembles a tropical paradise.
We move on to Skyros, an island of long-standing traditions and customs, and unspoilt beaches for those who value the “throw a towel on the sand and dream the day away” kind of summer holiday experience over organized umbrellas, sunbeds and beach bars.
And then it’s back to the mainland for many more cultural and natural highlights, ending with a visit to a local winery.
Running as a constant theme throughout is the mouth-watering local food and agricultural produce that represent both the destination and the people we encounter.
We’re almost there! Season 3 of DiscoverGreece.com Digital Travel Show, Wanderlust Greece, is just a drumroll away – and this time we’re off to #Evia and #Skyros. Get ready to fall in love with a part of Greece you probably never even knew existed, just as much as you’ll love your new host! (Don’t miss the big reveal next week!)
We’re broadcasting LIVE | Join us as George Lentzas delivers the opening live video of Wanderlust Greece | Evia – Skyros. Share that wanderlust drone flight above Chalkida city and tune in on our social media channels as we introduce the splendid beauty of Evia to you!
Hey! @george_lntz here. Our second day in #Evia found us driving north, to reach the village of Limni. We started ascending on beautiful and narrow mountain roads, thinking to ourselves that we’re in a completely different place, compared to the coastal city of #Chalkida. Wild nature, cut-back rivers and locals commuting to their daily routines without the buzz of mass tourism anywhere around, turned our day into an interesting puzzle of views and images! #WanderlustGR
Hey, @george_lntz here again. I hope you’re enjoying your Sunday. Today is ? #earthday and we couldn’t find ourselves anywhere better than #Evia! This land is a mini version of Greece, inside Greece. Huge seaside mountain lines, sandy beaches, raw cliffs; Τhis place is a celebration of nature’s diversity. Remember, we ought to preserve that!
HEALTH WARNING guys! Danger of an acute case of wanderlust, causing you to fall hopelessly and irreversibly in love with #Evia. So much so that we’ve had to separate this coastline into 4 parts to avoid over-excitement. Swipe left at your own risk ? Ps: I’ll drop by later to check your levels of excitement!
If #WanderlustGR needed to be visualized as a transportation mean, it would have been a boat to me. Impatience and curiosity, expectations and reality check, calm and tension, all these feelings run through your soul, and you just wait to get off and see, feel, experience things first handed. My strong desire for exploration led me to #Skyros, and I’m sooooo ready to hop off that boat! Some serious wanderlust is just around the corner. Tune in!
Checking in from the Chora of #Skyros! This piece of land is – without a doubt – one of the most iconic communities you can find at the Aegean Sea. The locals have created a beautifully composed village that kept its architectural structure through the time. Tiny houses, well-built stone paved roads and many Mediterranean plants and trees, create the ideal scenery for your vacation this summer. Yay! ?
Hey folks, George Lentzas here with an undersea confession to make… #Skyros taught me that the deeper you go, the cooler it gets! The island offers a lot of tempting sea caves for snorkeling! A ten-minute boat ride from the port was enough to give us access to this crystal clear underwater paradise! Who’s keen on leaving bubbles on the magical island? ?
Goodbye #Skyros! You won us over with your authenticity. The view from the monastery was simply incredible… so we went for you even higher! We sent up our drone one last time to capture your magic and give you something in return. Stay tuned for DAY 9, we return to #Evia, the land of pleasure, adventure and discovery! ?#WanderlustGR
Here’s @george_lntz for ? DAY 9 of Wanderlust Greece | #Evia – #Skyros and we’re flying our bird above the astonishing Porto Buffalo port! A well-hidden fishing village renowned for its delicious fresh fish and its tranquility. This is today’s dreamscape guys… share it and love it! ?
- Hey folks, @george_lntzhere trying to grow my shadow over this gorgeous beach of southern #Evia. Apparently, we still run on island time here… ? Megali Ammos is one the most picturesque beaches of this land. With its exotic feel, its crystal clear waters and its playful shape the beach injected great enthusiasm into my soul! Lucky enough to have it all for myself, I started believing that home is where the beach is…
- DAY 11 for Wanderlust Greece | #Evia – #Skyros
It might be our final day on the island, but it had to be a day to remember! So, we took the boat to Petali island complex – 10 beautiful hidden spots next to Marmari, South Evia. If you are into scuba diving, this place has a lot to offer! If you are not, well… no problem. There are so many beautiful beaches around to chill and enjoy your day! Typical Greece, always delivers something for everyone!
What’s up, guys? @george_lntz here for one last post for Wanderlust Greece | #Evia – #Skyros. The feeling of wanderlust has to do not only with place but time as well. Several days ago, I was in real doubt that Evia would offer all these things a real adventurer looks for. Truth is it offers even more. There are so many beautiful and uncharted places right next to our playground, that escape our concentration while we’re thinking of great adventures and far away lands. That’s Evia for me. That blessed land is a whole world of off the grid experiences, an hour driving from my city, right in my backyard in other words… It’s not an easy nor a major touristic destination. It’s a place for thrill seekers, off the beaten path travelers and trust me – a lot of people don’t know Evia, but those who do, always come back. Thank you Evia! A traveler stunned by your majesty. ?
George Lentzas was born in Thessaloniki, Northern Greece, in 1990. He is a TV Host, videographer, nature enthusiast but mostly a ‘’professional fun haver!’'
He was studying Journalism and Communication in Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, when he expressed a huge interest in traveling and documenting his experiences, both written and captured in videos. That led him to go after study abroad projects, traveling in Australia, USA and pretty much all of Europe at a very young age. While still being a student he gained mass attention by participating in the action-packed traveling tv show ‘’World Party’’, that turned him from a traveling enthusiast to a pro storyteller.
As soon as ‘’World Party’’ ended, he developed a solid project called ‘’On the Road’’, about traveling all around Greece in a 72’ VW camper van, on a bucket list highly connected to greek nature, off-the-grid adventures and portraying Greek regional areas as never seen before on Greek Television.
On his 27th year of walking into planet Earth and having traveled around 58 countries and pretty much all of the Greek territory, he is still amazed by all the unseen beauties that his country has to deliver!
