8. Skado to Apollon (via Komiaki)

Total duration of this tour is approximately 6.5 hours, 4.5 hours hiking and 2 hours travel by vehicle to and from the mountain village of Skado.

Our trek starts just on the outside of the charming village of Skado, after awhile the path narrows (Monopati), this altitude attracts more annual rainfall than at sea level so we see the Oak and Walnut trees flourish in a green, fertile valley. The route continues towards the village of Komiaki with its mysterious ravines. The terraced gardens are well kept and cultivation is a challenge for the local villagers.

After a short ascent we reach the picturesque village with its many flowers, next to the church we will briefly stop at the Kafenion for refreshment.

«A very rewarding hike from the mountain villages to the seaside fishing village of Apollonas situated on the northern shore. Breathe the fresh, healthy air, feel the energy within, a detoxifying hike of contrasting scenery.»


Hiking Guide

After our pause at Komiaki we follow the mountain path carefully through “Hill and Dale”, mostly unspoilt countryside where the goats stop and stare as we trek their pastures.

The views are truly spectacular, the bay of Apollonas, distant Islands outlined in a sparkling, turquoise Aegean sea. You only now begin to appreciate the natural beauty of the Island.

After arriving at Apollonas we will be ready and willing to choose one of the specialities on the Tavernas menu. After satisfying our appetites a bus will return us to the village of Skado.
