NAXOS AT YOUR FEET (HALF DAY TOUR)

Naxos hides unknown treasures, so try to discover them and enjoy the delights of walking! We start from Kournochori, a small traditional village where you will have the chance to taste some fruits from the gardens and then our road will lead us to the valley of Melanes. We will pass through the village Mili where we will find a small waterfall and some abandoned watermills.

Moving on we will come to one of the three Kouros of Naxos, which is unknown to the public, as it is not easy to reach if you don't know the area. An old marble foot path starts after it, which used to be the donkey road of the village, leading to the villages of Potamia from where a river starts.

A wonderfully green scenery starts and on your way you will find water turtles, crabs and other small treasures of the river.

It's a great way to spend a part of your day in peaceful and tranquil surroundings, untouched and undisturbed by the modern way of life.

RIVERWALK (FULL DAY)

We start in the morning from the travel agency Naxos Tours, or we can pick you up from your hotel. After half an hour we arrive at the mountainous village Kynidaros (550m high), in the middle of the island. After a small sightseeing tour in the village, we visit an old olive press.

Then, we go down an old path that leads to the longest river of the island, which provides drinkable water throughout the year. The valley that lies before us is an oasis of silence in nature. Half the path goes under shady trees, by the cool brook, so even in summer it's not too hot for this tour.

We also visit the big church of Agios Artemios, the old monastery of Agios Dimitrios, nine old watermills and a waterfall. The tour is about 11km downwards and lasts about 6 hours. During the tour we may come across a lot of animals, such as turtles, crabs and butterflies. Also, we can collect various species of herbs and taste fruit in season.

Then, we arrive at Engares, the most fertile village of the island, where we have one and a half hours to enjoy a delicious meal with a wide variety of starters, local wine and Greek coffee. At 5pm we go back to town. Your will be provided with an English-German speaking escort.
