Europe Trip Leader

Vasili Vasileiou

Vasili Vasileiou was born and raised in Ioannina, Greece, and followed in the footsteps of his father and uncle in the trekking business from a young age. After attending college in Thessaloniki, he began working as a trek leader, and in his desire to experience even more mountains, traveled to Cervinia, Italy, where he worked as a ski patrol guide and led private trekking trips. In 2017 he attended the newly formed Greek government school for mountain guides and successfully completed his training two years later. He is now a member of UIMLA (Union of International Mountain Leader Associations). When not guiding our Zagoria & Mt. Olympus trips during the summer season, Vasili likes to spend time in his home village of Zagorochoria, exploring the mountains of Greece, and ski patrolling at the national ski resort of Vasilitsa. “Mountaineering, skiing, and hiking are my life. And that life I want to share with the people I guide—the peace and the simple life of nature.”

Client Testimonials

Vasili is understated yet thorough, restrained yet ever-watchful, always prepared and always willing to help. He is very, very congenial and willing to spend evening time talking all things Greek...or other. He is incredibly intelligent and informed about the world around him without imposing on the people he leads.
