Our walking holiday in Naxos and the Small Cyclades will start from the island of Naxos and will continue with island-hopping around the islands of the Small Cyclades. Naxos is the largest, richest and most multifaceted island of the Cyclades. You will experience lofty mountains, fertile valleys, plateaus, springs, rivers, caves, picturesque villages, Byzantine chapels, Venetian towers, kouros statues, ancient sites, endemic wildlife, unique customs and cultural happenings as well the longest sandy beaches in the Aegean. South of Naxos there is a group of small islands called the Small Cyclades; Amorgos, Iraklia, Schinoussa, Pano and Kato Koufonissi and Donoussa. Until recently, these islands were very isolated so they still remain unspoiled, a small piece of heaven, Greek hospitality and traditional culture.
