  • From the top of the mountain you can see the Cyclades, and say, to Asia minor in a day without fog. It is a highly recommended walk. It should alight at Agia Marina, not in Filoti, it saved a considerable time of walk which is basically by route. From there, take a path that goes to the right and is easy to navigate. It is a hike of medium difficulty, need to bring plenty of water since there should be protection for the wind. The Greek passage, with goats that ebb and flow by the boulders, rocks, vegetation and marble (eye sliding!) can be admired. The view from the top is unforgettable. One experience more than recommended in Naxos and Greece. You can download by another path and see the cave of Zas, it is a little difficult to find but you can do with a map and planning. We went to Ag Marina again and then walked to Filoti, is a road along the route that not I liked very much

  • Almost a remake of the film "the Englishman who went up a hill and came down a mountain". This mount Zeus (Zas in greg), top 1001 (or 1005 according to the guides) meters, is worth a visit. The ascent takes about 2 hours which is low and the panorama is really worth.

  • As we didn't spend the whole day walking in relatively warm weather, we opted for the easiest path, which starts from Agia Marina. Nice hike, no danger of getting lost and superb view from the top (in our case, the weather was sunny but humid and it was bad the Islands in the distance). 1 hour rise, 50 minutes of descent. This short walk then allowed us to visit the surroundings (Apirathos and Chalkio). Beautiful day in the center of the island.
