Hiking Akramitis Mountain

Summary

The hike starts from Monolithos, a beautiful rural village at the West side of the island. The top of Akramitis mountain, the second highest of the island of Rhodes, is our “mission”! The hike ascents at first on green slopes of cypress trees that overlook the bay of Apollakia giving us multiple chances for amazing photos. After the first part, we now hike through beautiful alpine meadows, full of aromatic herbs like sage and oregano and we soon reach the chapel of St John. Time for a well-deserved stop, before starting again to get to the top. Once arrived, the views are amazing. We will admire the nearby islands of Halki, Alimia, Tilos and even Karpathos and the inland of Rhodes Island. To go down we follow a different trail though high pine trees. This hike offers you the chance to explore a totally undiscovered area of the island, and can surely convince you that Rhodes is more than it seems.

About operator:

Rhodes possesses a unique historical and cultural heritage. Through history it has attracted Minoans, Phoenicians, ancient Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Byzantines, knights, Jews, Ottomans, Levantines and Italians who contributed to its rich cultural mosaic. Nowadays, Rhodes is a popular cosmopolitan destination with natural beauty, mild climate, almost permanent sunshine, wonderful buildings and monuments. Leaving behind touristic development, we discover alternative routes and getaways on the island. Moving away from Rhodes’ much frequented roads, we follow paths that served as the old social and trading network between the villages, paths used for agriculture and livestock farming, paths leading to pilgrimage sites and places of religious devotion. The island’s natural terrain and its unique environment offer exciting routes for cycling, mountain bike, hiking and sea excursions. Combine a rich cultural experience and discover untouched land where the scenery alternates rapidly under the deep blue of the Greek sky, beside charming beaches and crystal clear waters.
