Northern Syros is well suited for hiking, the southern parts are flatter and do not have as beautiful scenery.

If you are going to hike, I recommend Anavasis blue map (1:20,000), it describes twelve hikes on Syros, both easy and difficult. The map also include a very good map of Ermoupolis.

Terrain maps is another Greek cartographic company specialized in hiking maps. They have a map of Syros, scale 1:20,000. Also that map describes twelve hikes and are available for purchase on the island.

I recommend you to buy the hiking book Amorgos, Naxos, Paros and The Eastern & Northern Cyclades by Dieter Graf. The book describes three nice hikes on Syros in detail. The book can most likely be purchased on Syros.
