PANAGIOTIS KARKANIAS

Co-founder/Adventure Travel Operations

Panagiotis was born in 1985 in Athens, Greece. His studying background begins with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics at the National and Kapodestrian University of Athens followed by a Master in Tourism Destination Management at Breda University of Applied Sciences, The Netherlands.

A passionate traveler with a strong interest in tourism geography, ethnic cultures, worldwide environmental issues and sustainability in tourism development, Panagiotis has visited 30 countries across 4 continents. He has participated in tourism field research at international destinations such as Sydney, Australia, Chiang Mai, Thailand and Bali, Indonesia, as well as having conducted individual research on ecotourism at his country of origin.

Early 2014, he decided to combine his tourism background with his appreciation of Greek traditional culture and beautiful landscapes, creating - along with Stavros - Bearing True South, a project that invites travelers to explore the 'off the beaten track' parts of Greece.

A FEW WORDS

Our team's collective and individual skills have been gained through years of operating in some of the remotest regions and culturally diverse communities around the globe.   

We take great pride in our extensive knowledge of the local culture, history and geography of every single destination we visit in Greece. 

Everyone at Bearing Tue South shares certain values on what traveling means to everyone involved in this process, be it the visitor, the host community and the natural environment.

We constantly strive for a minimum environmental footprint, while aiming for maximum benefits for the local communities and the visitor alike.

We believe that every journey is a cultural exchange, leaving its mark on both the traveler and the locals.

Over time we have cultivated strong personal relationships with the communities we visit, which ensures that you, besides feeling welcome, can enjoy genuine hospitality and immerse in the local culture.

Your overall experience and personal safety are of paramount importance to us and our professional skills and expertise are at your disposal at all times. 

Evey single aspect of our tours has been extensively researched personaly by us.
