Together we travel to the centre of the Island to Moni where our hike will begin. Exploring the flora and fauna of this region we will follow the old marble trails to the next village of Kaloxylos.

Aromatherapy Herbs such as Lavender, Louisa, Lemon and Verbena surround us, the fresh clean air has a perfume, you sense you are far away from urban pollution. The trail leads us through fertile land, Citrus, Pomegranate, Plum, Cherry, Fig, Olive and Grape are managed to reap a rewarding harvest. Transiting the Tragea plateau we reach the quaint, charming village of Halki, an ideal location for our first refreshment break.

Here we have the opportunity to visit the Kitros museum owned by the Valindras family. It is the oldest distillery on the Island and you are able to sample their famous beautifully coloured liqueurs.
