    Envision the scenario: traversing under the shelter of plane trees and citrus groves, a monumental kouros statue, a representation of a male youth from ancient times, lies flat on the ground just minutes into your hike. And there's another one a short distance away! Unravel the mysteries surrounding the presence and abandonment of these statues right on the spot!

    Adjacent to the Kouros statues, ancient and modern marble quarries unfold, recounting Naxos' enduring connection with marble. Progress through villages via ancient footpaths that have linked these charming whitewashed locales for centuries.

    Upon reaching Ano Potamia, take a refreshing pause at the village's water fountain. The uphill portion of the hike leads you to Apano Kastro and the remnants of a Venetian citadel, treating you to a breathtaking panoramic view: the Tragea valley stretching beneath; the Aegean sea's limitless blue merging with the horizon; and lunar-like landscapes punctuated by villages nestled in verdant surroundings.

    As you descend, you'll first arrive at the scenic village of Tsikalario, concluding your hike in Halki, an enchanting village showcasing neoclassical architecture.

    The journey concludes with a visit to a local distillery producing Kitron, Naxos citrus based liqueur, where you can raise a toast to life, laughter, newfound friendships, and a memorable day! Cap off the adventure with a delectable meal at one of the island's finest traditional tavernas, nestled under the shade of a climbing grapevine.

    Our transport ensures a seamless return to your accommodations, completing the unforgettable experience.
