Hiking in Naxos
Naxos is the largest island of Cyclades. Its mountainous terrain and slightly recessed coastline result in a shift of the population in rural rather than maritime occupations.
The highest point of the island, Zas has a height of 1,002 meters which makes it the highest peak in Cyclades.
Besides the presence of marble of good quality, it is the only place in Greece that emery deposits in exploitable quantities are found.
Rich in archaeological sites and medieval monuments, Naxos is one of the most interesting islands in Cyclades and one of the most popular for hikers.
From the vast wealth of the island’s paths, we propose a selection of the best trails.
A hiking guide of topoguide app series, dedicated to Naxos island, 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.
