Firstly we go to Kinidaros Village where our hike starts, walking through the village we go up some stairs to our left, past the elementary school until we leave the village behind us.
Following a farm road and a sidewalk which leads to the riverbed, this hidden Oleander Paradise is an ideal place for us to pause awhile.
I must add a word of warning that whilst Oleanders are pretty they are also known to be extremely toxic, even to touch.
When ready we will continue partly along the river bed and also ancient paths until we reach the second special place. Break Time to enjoy the rather nice company of the “River Turtle Family”.
«A lovely Trek along different terrain including a riverbed, its passage towards the sea and its life sustaining occupants.»
We continue into an intense aromatherapy stroll collecting Oregano and Thyme until we reach Eggares close to the northern shore.
We will be picked up from here and return to Chora.
Amazing Hike on Naxos
What an amazing hike. When visiting Naxsos hiking with Stella is a must. Stella is a caring and knowledgeable guide.The views of the mountains, the plants along the way and finally the beautiful swim and lunch at the end was memorable. We will definitely do another hike the next time we are in Naxsos.
Never a dull moment with Stella. She is a hidden gem
We hade a great amazing experience on our hike with Stella from Koronos to Lionas Bay. Stella has unlimited knowledge on the botanics, history and geography of Koronos region at Naxos. Our group of 16 greatly enjoyed her passionate story telling and learned so much during the beautiful hike. ended with a dive in the waves of Lionas Bay and a fantastic lunch. Highly recommeded.

I really enjoyed this 2 days walking with Stella, I did 2 différents hikings , one through 7 beautiful villages of Naxos island. Stella knows about medicinal plants and tells stories about the history of the island. The second hiking is a fantastic way from the village of Koronos to the bay of lyonas. Stella is well organized I really had pleasure with her.

Koronos to Liona Bay Hike
We had a wonderful day with Stella. She picked us up at the hotel in Ágios Prokopios and then drove us to Koronos where the hiking started. The marble path is fantastic! Stella makes us feel very relaxed, shows the different villages surrounding the area and provides a lot of “aromatherapy” experiences with the herbs that grow in the area.

Want to find the real Naxos? Ask Stella.
My wife and I have been coming to the blessed island of Naxos for 10 years. This year we decided we must make more of an effort to discover more of the island. Stella is a local lady who gave us a brilliant waterfall walk. She is awesome. Knowlegable about everything Naxos, including plants and herbs founds on the walk. Ignore the rest, choose the best... Stella.
