Rural Island Life

If you’re an enthusiast of local flavors and the Mediterranean cuisine, you’re going to love this tour. Naxos is famous for its gastronomy and even grows some of its fruits in its fertile midst. Take a riverside tour among picturesque communities and villages lying along running waters and marvel at the traditional way of life in the countryside. Walk through beautiful gardens full of fruit-bearing trees, see for yourself what ‘farm to fork’ really means, and rediscover man’s intricate dependence on nature for sustenance, far away from the mechanics of mass production. Finish off the tour with a local treat in a traditional coffee shop.

This 3-hour walk by the river will take you through stone-paved paths that make it suitable for all ages. You might come across muddy parts in the rainier season.

The picturesque villages of Potamia, two Byzantine chapels, colorful trees, Venetian tower.
