Our air-conditioned coach will pick you up for a day touring our beautiful island. Our guide will tell you all about the fascinating culture, history and sights that Kos has to offer.
First you will learn about the history of Hippocrates by visiting the Asklepeion, an ancient hospital, dedicated to the God of Health, Asklepeios.
After we scale the mountains to the traditional village of Zia, which looks over the island, providing panoramic views. Here you can visit the quaint, traditional craft shops and the Natural Park with its birds, goats and other different animals of Kos, or maybe stop for a coffee break in one of the many cafes, while taking in the unbeatable view.
Continuing through the mountains, we visit Pyli with its fresh mountain spring. Next we head to Kefalos where we stop at Kamari Bay. Here you will have time to enjoy the crystal clear waters at one of the best beaches on the island or have a meal at the beach tavern.
Last but not least we visit Antimahia, in the middle of the island, with the oldest active windmill of Kos and a traditional greek house.
Enjoy yourself and get to know this beautiful island all in one day !
Take the chance to visit one of the most beautiful island of the Aegean.
Nissyros, one of the smallest islands of the Dodecanese, still untouched from today’s modernism, is rich in unparalleled natural beauties and cultural heritage.
It leads its life between the white painted narrow streets of its capital Mandraki and the semi-wild nature of the Volcanic Valley.
Have your breath taken away as our guide accompanies you in the coach, driving up 2000 feet to the highest point of the mountain for a visit to the volcano, one of the few dormant volcano’s in the world. Experience the incredible panoramic view before starting the descent to the crater, where you will feel the volcano alive, bubbling under foot and see the sculpture springs hissing.
The visit of the island is not complete without a homage to the old Byzantine Castle, which hosts the Monastery of Virgin Mary, carved into the rock. Myth has it that the monastery was established by regretted pirates who became its first monks.
As a special highlight we will as well visit the traditional and picturesque mountain village Nikia during our stay in the island.

Arrival in Astypalea port and transfer to the hotel.
Astypalea or Hora
The island’s capital is built on a hill jutting out into the sea to form two distinct bays; namely Livadi and Pera Gialos, where the main port is situated. The white domes of the churches of Evangelistria and Agios Georgios stand out against the dark, local stone of the hilltop castle in which they are enclosed.
Clustered on the hill around the castle are whitewashed houses with blue doors and windows, and wooden railings on their balconies. In the main square of the Hora, overlooking the mills, you will find restaurants with fine food as well as picturesque coffee shops and bars for an evening drink.
Following the course of a fertile gorge, then spreading wider where it meets the bay of the same name, the village of Livadi is the flower garden of the island; tangerine orchards, orange groves, vineyards and houses garlanded by flowers, all tumbling colourfully down to its beautiful beach. Throughout the day, you can enjoy a meal at the beach cafes and restaurants overlooking the sea and Hora.
Pera Gialos is the first port of the island and typifies authentic Astypalean hospitality.
It has lovely views, restaurants where you can enjoy the local cuisine, small traditional cafes and bakeries and a lovely beach, ideal for relaxation and the occasional dive into crystalline waters.
If you want to explore the rest of the coastline, Pera Gialos is also a great starting point, as here you will find tour boats that can take you to exquisite beaches of Astypalea and islands like Koutsomitis and Kounoupa.
Analipsi or Maltezana
A quiet coastal village nestled in a small valley in Mesa Nisi, ideal for relaxing on the fine sand. Its alternative name, Maltezana, dates back to the days of the pirates, who would roam the Aegean and take refuge in the island’s enclosed bays. The holiday village embraces a bay with a long pier, where fishing boats dock, and stretches back inland to delightful orchards and vineyards.
Maltezana has many restaurants where you can enjoy fresh fish.
A very narrow bay of about 50 meters, which looks more like a lagoon, Vathy has two small settlements: Exo Vathy, located at the entrance of the bay, with a number of small steps down to where fishing boats dock, and the more pastoral Mesa Vathy, at the end of the bay, with quiet fields, shady orchards and vineyards. You can reach Vathy via a passable dirt road.
It lies about 12km from Maltezana.
