Or rent a car and follow our itinerary by your own!!!
Arrival in Kos airport or Port of the island and transfer to the hotel. Rest day free.
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.

Check in and rest of the day free
On Lipsi not a day goes by without being able to experience something brand new and original. The twenty four islets that embrace it are “living museums of natural history” awaiting exploration. With their rich flora and fauna and their registration in the Natura 2000 catalogue, they make the ideal refuge for the Μonachus-monachus seal, sea turtles as well as Eleonora’s falcons, herring gulls and other rare birds, whose nests occupy every eligible nook and cranny.
Swim in the turquoise waters, dive to admire the wonderful sea bed, or take a boat ride to visit secluded bays, cave formations, coves and beaches and, if you are lucky, a dolphin may join you!
For imaginative palates
Resisting the influx of “tourist cuisine”, the inhabitants of Lipsi use their local produce in delicious, traditional recipes. Their sea provides its treasures generously: cray fish, prawns, crabs, oysters, fish and octopi ideally accompany the ouzo you will drink in the harbor at dusk, a meeting place for locals and visitors who do not take long to become one big convivial group.
And if you prefer home cooked food, try stuffed mountain goat, courgette flowers with rice, “pitaroudia” and “giaprakia”. Accompany your meal with exquisitely delicious hand kneaded bread and local Lipsi wine. For a sweet tooth, “pougakia”, “patsavouropita” and “xerotigana” with honey will leave no room for complaints. The game of flavours never ends on Lipsi!
Footpaths – hiking routes
If you love hiking routes, follow the wonderful paved footpath past the holy church of the “Kimisi tis Theotokou” – Assumption of the Holy Mother of God- all the way to the temple of «Ano Kimisi”, or climb to the “Aravis” mill at the highest point of the Hora (the main village).
The view to the big Aegean blue will be reward enough. If you want to go higher, the castle with the remnants of an acropolis lies at the highest point of the island. The serenity of the landscape will captivate your heart!
