While spending several weeks on the lovely island of Naxos I took the opportunity to book two hikes with Naxos Trekking. The first hike was the Halki-Moni loop trail which winds through the Naxian countryside between two quaint villages. While the experience of traversing through the olive groves, among oleander and jasmine, past ancient Byzantine churches would have been rewarding on it's own, Yiota, my guide, shared with me her knowledge and insights on the history, culture and nature of Naxos: and this made the experience one of the best during my stay. The following week I went with Yiota on the trail to the summit of Mt. Zas and enjoyed it just as much. The 360 degree views from the highest point in the Cycladic islands were stunning. Again, I was very impressed with the information and insights provided by Yiota throughout our trek.
I would definitely recommend the guided tours provided by Naxos Trekking to anyone looking for an authentic Naxian experience. (If you plan on hiking, you should allocate the space in your luggage for hiking shoes - it is worth it).
