Kids & Family Tour

What better way for young adventurers to spend a fun and an authentic immersive day than exploring the magic of the Naxian countryside!

Our fresh morning start begins with a drive to the island’s largest expanse of olive groves. In this serene and peaceful setting, home to farm animals, we visit a private donkey farm surrounded by 800-year-old olive trees!! Family opportunity to meet and interact with the most famous Greek equine: the donkey, and other farm animals such as ducks, geese, chickens, bunnies, goats and others. After meeting, petting, feeding the animals it’s time for a fun activity: we invite young and old kids to a game of archery, like Artemis- the ancient goddess of nature.

We continue our exciting morning with a nature walk through the olive grove to reach the most picturesque village of the island, Chalki. Visit a local bee keeper for honey tasting and enjoy lunch at a traditional restaurant where our local escort will explain all about the local dishes and the famous local custard pastry (“galaktoboureko”). Finally, there is an extra treat for parents; a visit to the old distillery, founded more than 100 years ago, for a taste of the local “citron” digestive liqueur. Drive back to the hotel with treasured memories of an authentic island day to remember.

Fun for kids - fun for parents, loved it!
Very authentic and highly sustainable. Great way to connect with local people and their reaality. Kids enjoyed petting all the animals at the farm, parents also enjoyed food and wine at the small village. If you are travelling with young kids looking for a local tour experience away from tour buses and noise, this is the Naxos tour for you!
