<strong>ITINERARY:</strong>
DAY 1
Depending on the time of your fight arrival you can join us on your first tour of your holidays.
You cannot say that you have visited Thassos without visiting its Ancient Agora, the Amphitheater, the old church St.Nikolaos built in byzantine years and the remainings of Acropolis.
Your first tour will start with a pick up from your hotel and a drive to Thassos town, the capital of Thassos, the glorious city state of Ancient Greece which had 50000 citizens at that years
After exploring the town and stroll through the monuments we move by car towards the most rare beach in Greece made out of the snowwhite marble of Thassos. Locals call it "Saliara" where we stay for a refreshing swim
On our way back we make a short stop to picture the magnificant snow-white mountain where the special marble is extracted. We finish our day with a fine 4-course meal in a typical fishing tavern hearing the sound of the sea.

DAY 2
After you breakfast we our driver will peak you up to transfer you to the starting point of our second hiking tour. We walk from the longest beach in Thassos Dasilio upwards to Prinos village through an olive grove with huge perennial trees.
Olive production is strongly related with Thassos culture and we will give you an insight about our agricultural life the production process the habits and the celebrations to better understand what is happening before you find your favourit greek olive oil at the selve of your super market. We reach Prinos and we visit the open market where products local are sold by their producers. There you can find the world famous Thassos origano on a really cheap price. We walk throught he old donkey road towards Mikro and Megalo Kazaviti. The villages took their name from the Venetian occupation of Thassos in the medieval years. Kazaviti meant the house of vineyards (Casa=house - Vidi=vineyards). In Mikro kazaviti we will enjoy a full meal on an authentic Thassian tavern where we will eat Staffed pumkin flowers with rise, staffed wine leaves picked up from thier garden, local pitarakia a small pie made with 15 different vegetables and herbs from Thassos land. not to forget the mix grill of local meats and Thassos lamb. You return back to you hotel which is only few steps away from tavern.

DAY 3
After your breakfast we pick you up to transfer you just outside of Thassos town where we will start our walk towards Panagia village. We meet in our way old sycamores and depending on the season we walk next to a stream of fresh water.
Panagia the village we will reach in approx 4 hours walk is located in 300 meters height between two mountains well hidden from the sea. Locals built in 1800 the village there to protect themselves from the pirates who were the fear of all Greek islands at that time. Panagia is famous for its fresh water springs. fresh water coming underground flow through the village to the olive groves and to the sea. In Panagia we will visit an old cafe and try greek coffee made with the tradiotional way and bouyatsa (a delicious sweet). Then we meet our driver who will drive us back to your hotel.
Optional meal at night.

DAY 4
This day starts with a visit to the historic monastery of Agios (Saint) Panteleimonas built in 1844 by local people of Kazaviti to pay honor to the Saint who was believed to protect the village. A welcoming nun will provide us the necessary special clothing and we will enter this holy place.
In the little church of the monastery are kept some finest masterpieces of byzantine art. We will visit a natural cave (Agiasma) where it is said that a Saint used to live. The cave "hides" an unexplained mystery.

Our walk is towards Thassos lake and we will reach it through a wild natural scenic. Turtles, eagles, wild goats is likely to find on our way. After reaching the lake we will try to walk a little path to reach a small hidden waterfall and meet on our way little ponds of sweet cold water full of fishes. You can enjoy a “shower” under the waterfall or a swim in the pond if you like!
After visiting this pure natural scenic being far away from the touristic places we will walk to the little village Maries the only inhabited in Thassos without hotels. There we will have a nice meal in a tavern. After our meal the driver will collect us to transfer us back to your hotel.

DAY 5
Starting our day with a drive to Potamia a village where was borned one of the most famous Greek sculptors with significant international reputation, Polignotos Vagis, with masterpieces exhibited in New York and also in his family house in Potamia which turned to be a Museum of Modern Art. Museum is from times to times closed but if we are lucky to find it open we will make a visit to it before starting our upwards walk towards the top peak of Thassos.

This hiking walk is maybe one of the most exciting and of course the most demanding in physical strength. We will start our walk from 101 m. altitude to reach 1206m. , the top peak of Thassos. We walk having always at our back Golden beach and facing two mountains exciting 1100 meters. Ipsario and Profitis Ilias. On our way depending on the season we hear the refreshing sound of a little stream and enjoy the shadow of large perennial trees. A pick nic facing the sea and having huge mountains surrounding us is not a bad idea, so we go for it. On our way back we make a stop to relax in one of the little “Cafenio” where we will try their coffee before driving you back to your hotel.
