The hiking tour starts from Apoikia Village. Our first stop will be the impressive Pythara small waterfalls which falls down into a crystal clear pool. We’ll follow a stepped path, across lush landscapes of oaks, olive and walnut trees, along the river. While walking across the riverbed, you will have the chance to discover the unique nature of the island, visit old castle-houses, stone bridges, watermills, traditional olive presses, impressive old mansions, evidence of the maritime tradition of the island. Our final destination is the unspoilt beach of Gialia where we’ll stop for a picnic and a swim. We’ll end our walk back at the Chora.

This Half Day Hiking Tour is one of the best ways to get familiar with the rich naval tradition and history of the island, while you walk through picturesque settlements of Cycladic minimalism and neoclassical nobility.

"Very nice way to explore the island with people who put their heart and soul into the trails"
