KOS: UNLIMITED WAYS TO CONNECT WITH NATURE
For the ones who prefer the green sceneries Kos features many interesting walking trails and hikes. One of the most popular trail begins in the village of Zia and reaches the peak of Christos on Mount Dikeos after a hike of one to one-and-a-half hours, with a stop along the way at the Christos Chapel. The trail meanders through the forested slopes of the mountain and from the peak at 843m there is an amazing view of neighboring islands in the Aegean. Another two short but interesting trails start from Palio Pyli and leads to the Byzantine castle at the top of the hill and to the summit of Psoriaris where there is a viewing kiosk. The island is also known as the bicycle heaven since many Greek movies of the ‘60s feature actors riding bikes in the «palm avenue» of Kos harbor.
