Walking & Hiking in Samos

5.1km

In south-western Samos at the foot of Mountain Kerkis, the highest mountain in the Aegean (1,445m) and literally in the sea, lays Kampos Marathokampou. The natural beauty and the mild weather turn Kampos Marathokampou into an attractive touristic destination.

In the same area is located the chapel of the Virgin Mary “Sarantaskaliotisa”: in order to get there, the visitors will have to ascend 40 steps carved in steep rock. A bit higher still (altitude 700 m) is the monastery of “Moni Evagelistria”, the oldest church in Samos, from where one can enjoy panoramic views of the Aegean and surrounding islands.

For the walkers and hikers enthusiasts, the area offers countless routes and marked paths through the countryside, around the coastline, in the forest hills, including caves and rock formations. The region is classified as Natura 2000 European protection area (GR4120003), with remarkable vegetation and wildlife.

The ultimate highlight is the slightly more challenging hike to the top of mountain Kerkis (Vigla | 1433m) which offers the most spectacular views to the north, south and west Samos as well as the neighbouring islands.

COVID-19 Preventive measures and regulations

We are doing our best to prepare our premises for your future holidays.

 

Your safety comes first!

With this information we wish to vanish any anxiety you may have and assist you to decide which option of booking fits best to your travel needs and make sure you are informed of our safety precautions.

 

If you already have a booking with us:

If you have booked your stay directly through our website or our reservations team on a non-refundable rate and has an arrival date till June 30RD you may:

  1. Rebook your stay for the period 1/7 – 10/10/2020 under the same terms & conditions and without any cancelation fees apart from the rate difference according to the new travel dates and get a complimentary room upgrade up on availability.
  2. Take an open date Voucher valid for 18 months ahead, without any cancelation fees and equal to the total money you have paid for your booking, which you will have the chance to offset with your future reservation cost.

In case you do not redeem your voucher within 18 months from the issue date, the entire amount will be returned to you at that time.
We would like to let you know that, faced with the unprecedented turn of events, the Greek state, as well as other EU countries, recently passed a law that allows businesses in the travel industry to issue such a voucher instead of extending an immediate refund.

We assure you that we will show you the same flexibility and respect, honoring your booking at any time over the next 18 months.
