Learning holidays: Greece, island ikaria

Hiking on the island of Ikaria

Hiking is organized twice a week, each time in different locations of Ikaria, depending on the ability and physical condition of our guests. An online map that includes some of the trails of the region of Arethousa is also available for those who want to walk by their own.

Ikaria is a mountain that rises from the depths of the sea up to 1Km above the sea level. In a terrain consisted of deep ravines and high peaks stretches a network of old paths that tried to connect the settlements that were scattered in the mountains. Several of these trails are still accessible. We will walk several of them and so you will have the opportunity to enjoy the Ikarian landscape and wildlife of the island. You can find some images of this landscape and wildlife in the small video clip of the French musician Paul Barreyre that follows.
