As the there weren’t any proper roads constructed in Amorgos before the 1990’s, settlements used to be connected by paths while donkeys were used for transportation of goods from one place to the other. Now that cars have replaced donkeys, we are left with very well preserved paths passing through cultivated valleys and impressive rocky slopes waiting to be explored. There are trails of all levels of difficulty including easy paths and more demanding trails, both short and longer ones, so that you can select what suits you best, depending on your experience, mood and time available.
Some of the most popular walking paths are from Katapola and Minoa to Agios Georgios Valsamitis, from Arkessini to Vroutsi and then Katapola, from Chora to Katapola, from Chora to Aigiali, which is the longest trail, and many more.
If you select Katapola for your Amorgos accommodation, you are close to most of the above paths. Get the right equipment and get ready to discover the wild beauty of Amorgos.
