What you'll do

The 21 miles (35km) itinerary passes through rural trails, farmlands, and local villages. The terrain is mostly flat but still considered a medium-level ride. There will be plenty of time to stop for photographs, and your guide will share local history along the way. 

Your adventure starts in the charming village of Halki, considered as the "capital" of Northern Naxos. Take a stroll down its lovely old mansions, charming churches, and colorful alleys, and feel as if you've been transported back in time. Your first stop is the Agios Mamas' Byzantine Chapel, tucked away in a lush green valley in the region of Kato. This Chapel holds great importance to the locals, as Saint Mamas was a beloved figure, serving as the protector of shepherds in a time when agriculture and cattle breeding were the primary sources of income for the people of Naxos.

Next, visit Back to the Roots Farm, located in Halki, where you can immerse yourself in nature and learn all about the charming donkeys and other animals as you interact with them amid the lush olive trees. You'll have the chance to feed the donkeys, sheep, and geese in complete tranquility. After that, you can have some fun as you try your hand at amateur archery! Your friendly hosts will guide you every step of the way and teach you the techniques, making it an exciting adventure for everyone.

Last but not least, visit the Saint Anna Winery in Potamia Village. You'll have the opportunity to taste local wine, produced and bottled in Naxos, paired with Naxian olive oil, cheese, tomatoes, and olives. This small yet great vineyard has a chapel, a threshing floor, and, most of all, a great atmosphere.
