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.

They have lives and worked on Karpathos since 2011 and have a lot of knowledge about Karpathos and the proud Greek history and their traditions. This they try to transmit during their many different walks.
