  • Votsalakiaia Kampos - Kerkis cca 5-6 hour, back 4 hour, 2-3 liters water,somewhere long trousers (thorns)  more »
  • Beautiful views. We started hiking already 7am, to avoid the midday heat. We brought about 6l water for 2 persons and it was enough. Wear good shoes, the route is not easy to walk. Excellent marking.....  more »
  • Amazing the view from the top on the coasts of Samos and the bay beneath and also all the islands around Samos. The path on the way up is 3-4hours and 2-3h on the way down. There are two nice places to stop: first is the nunnery monastery (after 1 and half hour on the way up) and the second is the Profitis Ilias (3h from the start on the way up). The path changes all the way up from a small road at the beginning to a underforest path to bushes and Mediterranean plants on the top. A must do
  • A demanding route to the peak of Kampos, but the views pay off the effort. I recommend you go there when you do not warm the sun very much, because most of the route is on the outdoor space. Surely you need to have footwear suitable for mountain hikes (a lot of rocks) and a supply of food and drink (excursion from Kampos are several hours of hiking). The route is generally not well-marked, but places need to carefully look for red characters painted with a spray on the rocks (e.g. dots and arrows).
