Ikaria

Ikaria

 

Ikaria owes its name to Icarus, the hero of the Greek Mythology. The Island has been known from ancient times due to elements, such as its thermal springs, east and west of the main port of Agios Kirikos, and its famous dark wine.

For those who love hiking around wild beauty, with no added infrastructure and crowds will enjoy the typical immaculate ancient Greek vibe of the Island, almost untouched by tourism influence.
