Hiking in Amorgos



Seven old mountain walks between villages – used until the 80s by the villagers to get from one village to the other – have been transformed into eco-trekking routes that reveal the best of the island.

Two of the oldest hiking routes are from Katapola to Hora or to Minoa. The longer hike is from Hora to Egiali. Other wonderful hikes start from Arkesini and Kamari. Many are clearly signposted. Pick up the Travelogue of Amorgos at the town hall with all the historical hiking trails. There are 23 hikes on the island overall, with some of the most popular and interesting being:

Chora – Egiali 
Chora – Profitis Ilias – Chozoviotissa – Chora 
Egiali – Langada – Tholaria – Egiali (hike no. 
Egiali – Langada – Agios Theologos – Stavros – Egiali
Kamari – Kastri – Lefkes – Katapola
Katapola – Chora – Katapola (shorter hike)
