Hiking in Amorgos

Hiking in Amorgos

Amorgos took its name from the amorgion plant, a type of flax, from which were made in ancient tunics of Amorgos ("Alice amorgides"). It has an area of 121 sq.km and an elongated shape, which follows the rocky ridge of the unique orographic axis of the island. Two relatively sheltered bays, constitute Amorgos harbors, Katapola and Aegiali. The capital is the sung by poets Chora of Amorgos, a snow-white, tight settlement, built in a fortified position away from the coast.

From the island’s rich path network, a particular network is selected and marked which interconnects three major landmarks: the town and the port, with Arsinoe and Aegiali.

A hiking guide of topoguide app series, dedicated to Amorgos, is under development. However, all trails are already included in the cartographic application Toponavigator, available for both Android and iOS (iPhone και iPad) devices.
Toponavigator provides full coverage of Greece with hiking off-line maps and thousands of POIS and offers tracking and navigation services.
