Cycladic Hiking Tour ( 8 Days)

Hike in the mountains of Naxos, a place of picturesque landscape ornamented with shepherds, goats, and tiny, solitary, whitewashed churches. Swim at the beautiful long beach of Pori in Koufonisi, where the sand is satin white and the sea a dazzling turquoise. Take in some of the most breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea at Amorgos. Savor fresh fish from the daily catch, at a local tavern by the sea.

DAY 1

Arrival in Naxos and welcome dinner

Your trip begins in Naxos. As the ferry arcs toward the island you catch the first glimpse of the Portara, a marble gateway on the headland, all that remains of an ancient temple to Apollo. Your guide will wait for you in the port and he will escort you to your hotel. In the afternoon, after a brief orientation meeting, we’ll set off to explore the old town of Naxos. To conclude the day, we will have our first dinner together in a traditional Greek restaurant. Overnight in Naxos, Read more

Naxos 1 night
DAY 2

Hike from Kouros statue to Chalki

There are countless hiking opportunities around Greece, thanks to its diverse and rugged terrain, and one of the best islands for this kind of activity is Naxos. Today you will start your hike from the spot where the two “small” Kouroi (male statues) of Naxos lay down, for 2600 years now. Continue onwards the Upper Castle, the former Venetian stronghold, passing olive groves interspersed with elements of the phrygana and maquis, and enter one of the most beautiful villages of the island, Chalki. A traditional meal in a local tavern will be served as a perfect remedy for the given effort. Hiking distance: 7km / Hiking Duration: 3 hours. Overnight in Naxos Read more

Naxos 1 night
DAY 3

Hike Mount Zeus

The island is home to the highest mountain in the Cyclades, Mount Zeus and the hike to the top of it, is probably the most epic one in the region. Mount Zeus has important historical significance because in ancient times, the local Greeks believed that the cave on the northwest flanks of the mountain was the birthplace of the god Zeus. When climbing it you'll get the distinct feeling that Greek mythology is actually rooted in reality. Afternoon is free, and the best way to spend it is to relax on one of the beaches around the main town and refresh your body in the clear and scented waters of the insuperable Aegean Sea. Hiking distance: 6,5km / Hiking Duration: 4 hours. Overnight in Naxos. Read more

Naxos 1 night
DAY 4

Stroll in Naxos town and ferry to Koufon

The town of Naxos is regarded to be one of the most beautiful towns in the Cyclades, particularly popular for its fine architecture that is composed of Venetian and Cycladic elements. In the morning explore the impressive Venetian castle that stands on top of it. Later on in the day catch the ferry to Koufonisi. Hidden away between the larger Cycladic islands of Naxos and Amorgos, Koufonissia is made up of two tiny islets, which are separated by a 200-metre sea channel. These two islands combine to form a place of sheer, tranquil beauty. Locals live mainly from fishing – it is claimed that there are more boats than residents – and there are no proper roads and hardly any cars, so everyone either walks or cycles. Overnight in Koufonisi Read more

Koufonisi 1 night
DAY 5

Hike at Koufonisi and afternoon ferry

The sandy beaches that rim Koufonisi's south coast give onto cerulean blue sea of a hue that seems confined to artists' palettes, seemingly impossible in reality; reaching them is a pleasure in itself. Since there are only a few roads, and little traffic, the best way to do that is on foot. So today will hike from our hotel to the beach of Pori, where you can enjoy a swim before returning back. In the Afternoon we will catch the ferry to Amorgos, the most eastern of the Cycladic Islands. The amazing crystal-clear waters of the island’s coastline provided a setting for Luc Besson’s 1988 film“The Big Blue.” There’s a peaceful atmosphere on this small island, and the few residents are mainly fishers or farmers. Hiking distance: 8km / Hiking Duration: 4 hours. Overnight in Amorgos. Read more

Amorgos 1 night
DAY 6

Hike a circular route above Aegiali bay

Amorgos’ landscape is famous for its wild herbs that grow in abundance everywhere on the island. Walking along the paths you will experience the calm silence, authentic island scenery and some of the most breathtaking views of the Aegean. Today head out on the beautiful 8,1 kilometers-loop walk that links the traditional village of Langada with the monastery of Epanochoriani and the village of Tholaria. The cobble stone path takes you high up, in the enclosing circle of hills dotted with small white churches, a patchwork of stone walls and lush vegetation. Hiking distance: 8,1km / Hiking Duration: 4 hours. Overnight in Amorgos. Read more

Amorgos 1 night
DAY 7

Hike from Chora of Amorgos to Aegiali

At 400 metres above sea level, Chora is an impressive sight. A rock plug wrapped with a 13th-century Venetian castle looks down on a clutch of whitewashed houses and churches. After visiting the Chora hike towards the monastery of Chozoviotisa. Clinging high above the turquoise sea on the island of Amorgos, and nestled like an aerie on a sheer bluff is one of Greece’s most extraordinary old Byzantine monasteries and religious gems. From there, follow wide cobbled mule paths, all the way to Aegiali.Hiking distance: 13km / Hiking Duration: 5 hours. Overnight in Amorgos. Read more

Amorgos 1 night
DAY 8

Ferry to Naxos
