Walks and Mountain bike tours on Samos

Walks on Samos

Samos is well known for its walking trails. A wide range of walks is possible from as early as April right up to October. You should have some previous experience when you walk in the Samos mountains along with physical endurance especially in the summer (due to the heat). For your safety you should also know that the rich vegetation and wide variety of fauna also present dangers (snakes, insects, scorpions). But you are normally not troubled by them. One of the difficult walks is the day walk to the highest mountain in the East Aegean, the "Kerkis". You should therefore inform yourself thoroughly before the walk.

The hiking guide Samos Hikes gets continuously updated and is a great reference and planning help for your hiking tours.
