Hiking in Lesvos
I have never gone hiking on Lesvos, even though I love to hike when I'm in Greece. It's because there's so much to see and do on Lesvos, so I have never had time to hike. The highest mountains on Lesvos are Mount Olympos in the south and Mount Lepetymnos in the north. Both mountains are 968 metres above sea level.
The Lava Path that runs through the Voulgaris gorge.
Someday I'll do it, because of course it's a fantastic hiking island. There are many hiking trails in the vicinity of Plomari, called the Lesvos Olive Trails, and it looks fantastic. Another hiking trail I would like to follow is The Lava Path that leads through the gorge of Voulgaris.

If you are going to hike on Lesvos, I can recommend Anavasi's map (1:18,000) which describes many hiking routes on Lesvos, simple as difficult. Anavasi also has a map for those who drive a car around the island. Both maps are available for purchase on Lesvos.
If you do not like to hike, you can stroll around in the beautiful alleys of Molyvos.
I recommend you to buy the hiking book Lesvos: Car Tours and Walks. The book describes 51 long and short hiking routes on Lesvos. The book is available for purchase on Lesvos, you can also buy it on internet if you want to plan your routes in advance.
