The island of Ikaria is itself a well-preserved jewel. Located in the North Aegean archipelago, Ikaria is one of the five blue-zones in the world. The simple lifestyle in harmony with nature and unspoiled traditions have kept the island away from mass tourism.

A balanced interweaving of mountain and sea, hot springs, sandy beaches and clear waters, lakes, waterfalls and vineyards.
In the northern part of the island, near the village of Mileopo, the mountain has the face of an Indian.
The most beautiful way to explore the island of Ikaria is on foot, on a mountain hike. The Erifi Plateau is a place straight out of sci-fi movies. Rocks that spontaneously grow out of the ground in the strangest shapes, waterfalls and amazing sea views. The secret to getting to them is to stay on track. Even if it seems like you’ve reached the end of the road, keep going!
