Hiking in Skopelos

As you can imagine, Skopelos is a first-class hiking island, beautiful scenery and rich wildlife are just some of the advantages. The fact that many of the old donkey and goat tracks are in good condition is also a big plus. The only downside that I can see, is that it can be difficult to find the way in many places since the vegetation is so dense. It's not like in the Cyclades where there are no trees or bushes.

If you are not used to hike, I can recommend the short walk to Sendoukia, or in all simplicity stroll around in the alleys of Skopelos Town. :-)

 

Hiking in Skopelos.

Skopelos offers very nice views during the walks.


If you are going to hike on Skopelos, I recommend the blue map (1:25,000) published by Anavasi, which describes several hikes on the island. Terrain maps (or Skai Maps) is another Greek cartographic company specialized in hiking maps. They also have a map of Skopelos with a scale of 1:25,000. Both maps are available for purchase on Skopelos.

 

Monasterys in Skopelos.

East of Skopelos town are several beautiful monasteries that it is possible to walk between.
