VILLAGES OF NAXOS AND BEYOND

Food, People & Culture

We invite you to join us for an exciting island tour of the villages of Naxos, which stimulates all five senses. Draw the curtain down on the guidebooks and discover the tapestry of local customs and traditions which brings the spirit of Naxos to life. Together, with your expert guide, you will explore the island’s local culture, from village to village, meet people, taste traditional products and experience the sights and sounds of nature while unravelling the rich history of Naxos.
 Our tour begins with a small hike to a tiny village, off the beaten path, where time stands still.. We are invited to a young farmer’s olive grove, set among natural springs and running waters and overlooking a green valley, where we’ll enjoy olive oil tasting and organic seasonal tastes. We continue to the site of the unfinished colossal archaic statue, known also as Apollo, which was “sleeping” in a nearby garden for centuries before its discovery by local farmers. After a glimpse of the island’s ancient past, we drive from the plain to the highlands passing the marble quarries of Naxos. Time for a tasty stop at the mountain village of Apeiranthos, known for its marble streets and medieval architecture, to sample local cheeses with a glass of wine and savor Naxian tastes full of local flavor. Dessert is as special as our next village stop: Chalki is the former capital of the island where we’ll taste Naxos’ famous citron liquor at a 100 year old distillery and, as an exceptional treat, savour the locally- prepared custard pie. Drive back with treasured memories filled with a true taste of Naxian life, now and then.
