Hiking in Karpathos

Karpathos' magnificent scenery obviously offers fantastic hikes. The northern parts of the island is like a paradise for hikers: old goat and donkey tracks leads through a wild scenery of woods, high mountains and deep valleys.

 

Some walks in Karpathos are signposted.

The best hikes are in the northern part of the island, in the region of Olympos, Diafani and Avlona. One nice hike goes between the villages of Othos, Volada and Aperi. A hike I would like to do (but have not done yet) goes from Spoa to Lefkos, via Mesochori.

 

Hiking between the villages in Karpathos.

To hike between the villages is a great pleasure.


If you are going to hike on Karpathos, I recommend Terrain maps, also called Skai Maps, which is a Greek cartographic company specialized in hiking maps. They have a map of Karpathos with a scale of 1:60,000. The map describes the best hiking routs on the island.

The hiking book Rhodes, Karpathos, Kos and Southern Dodecanese by Dieter Graf describes 10 hikes on Karpathos in detail. The book can be bought on Karpathos, but you can also buy it on internet if you want to plan your hiking routs beforehand.s
