    Hike around charming traditional villages and areas of unparalleled natural beauty.
    The journey begins and concludes in Halki, a captivating village showcasing remarkable neoclassical architecture. As you depart from Halki, you will traverse the scenic Tragea valley, where Byzantine churches of distinct architectural styles and varying historical periods are scattered, some decorated with stunning frescoes. Your hike will lead you through the region's olive orchards, fig groves, and citrus farms, arriving at Panagia Drosiani, one of the oldest churches in the Balkans dating back to the 6th century AD. This church is considered to be one of Naxos` most significant Christian monuments. Midway through your trek, you will reach the village of Moni, and after a short break under the trees, you proceed to the charming villages of Kaloxylos and Akadimoi. In the heart of Kaloxylos village, a visit to the folklore museum awaits, allowing you to step back in time and marvel at the rare exhibits from a bygone era.
    During the whole journey you will be embraced by nature! Lush forests, earthy trails, cobblestone pathways, a verdant gorge, and clusters of oak and plane trees , all harmonize to create an unforgettable hiking experience.
    Upon completing your hike, a visit to the local distillery producing Kitron, Naxos` famed citrus-based liqueur, awaits, providing an opportunity to raise a toast to life, laughter, newfound friendships, and a day etched in memory. The hike ends with a delectable meal at one of the island`s finest traditional tavernas, nestled under the cool shade of a climbing grapevine.
