Walking Routes


For someone who wants to explore the island by foot, the ideal beginning is the path Symi – Panormitis.

The hiker should start early to avoid the midday heat. The route is quite green, and is full of churches: Agios Konstantinos, Panagia Strateri, Agios Ioannis, Agia Marina of Nera and the Monastery of Megalos Sotiris. A deviation from this point leads through a forest of cypress, in Kourkouniotis area, where there are 11 restored stone crushers.
