Mount Zas Hike & Local Lunch

Besides outstanding beaches and unique natural environment, Naxos is also known for its hiking trails. We invite travelers to hike together with an experienced mountain guide to the top of Mt. Zas, the highest mountain of the Cyclades, where according to our ancient Greek mythology god Zeus -the supreme of all gods- spent his teenage years before acquiring the thunderbolt from the Cyclops! Your private car & driver will pick you up from your hotel and take you to the beginning of the path where you will meet with Giorgos, your Expert Mountain guide. Following the ancient trail that will lead you to the highest point of the Cyclades, marvel splendid views of the Aegean on the way, learn about the local flaura and enjoy storytelling from a native’s perspective! On the way down, passing by farms and shepherds, we prepare your appetite for a lovely authentic lunch at Chalki village, the old quaint capital of Naxos.

Outstanding Hiking Day!
Our mountain guide George was great fun to be with and shared lots of local knowledge throughout the tour.

Hikers, book this tour!
We had an excellent experience with Naxos Cultural Tours and George. Naxos Cultural Tours took care of every single detail that our group requested ahead of time and the hike to the top of Mt. Zas was absolutely gorgeous. George was a great personality, very welcoming and with a great sense of humor! We equally enjoyed lunch at the small village afterwards. Highly recommended tour.
