I myself have never hiked on Kos and I'm not sure whether it's a good hiking island or not. But I can very well imagine that it is a good hiking island since the scenery is very beautiful in its places. So far, I've just walked along the beautiful beaches. Next time I go to Kos I will do some real hikes. :-)

The best hiking map of Kos is published by the Greek cartographic company Terrain maps, also known as Skai Maps. The scale is 1:45,000 and can be purchased on Kos. The map describes the best hiking routes on the island.

The hiking book Rhodes, Karpathos, Kos and Southern Dodecanese by Dieter Graf describes eight hiking routes in detail on Kos. The book is available for purchase on Kos, you can also buy it on internet if you want to plan your routes in advance.
