Hiking and Trekking on Karpathos island


«The best way to meet a place is to hike»

Hiking on Karpathos island is the most famous outdoor activity. Guided Hiking Tours help you to see the natural environment with safety but also to learn the history of every path of the island.

With more than 30 paths Karpathos invites us to explore and discover it as each one possesses its own unique history, architecture, and biodiversity.

We offer a wide variety of hiking packages for all ages and difficulty levels. For experienced hikers, we offer the crossing of Karpathos

in 8 days full of adventure, mountains, and unique local flavors!

It is a hiking program that gives you the opportunity to get to know the whole island of Karpathos, every village, and every mountain.

With our local guides, everything is done accurately and safely to ensure your maximum satisfaction! For nature lovers and wild plants,

we offer the 7-day botanical package in the protected area of Karpathos and Saria.

The nature of Karpathos is unique since there are more than

100 endemic plant species many of which are listed on the red list of IUCN. With absolute attention and respect to

the ecosystems of Karpathos, our experienced botanist will show you all the interesting plant and animal species as the only

frog of Karpathos.

For hikers with little experience or for families with young children, we offer specially designed packages with easy but equally beautiful

hiking trails where they can enjoy our nature, culture, and history!

A unique trait of the paths of Karpathos is the alternation of the natural environment because during hiking you can come across three different types of ecosystems.

You will also find a pinewood, a river surrounded by plane trees, a region filled with old terraces revealing the past, as well as natural springs with cool water which take your thirst away and give you the chance to relax!
