Ikaria Island, Explore and Experience is a travel and walking guide with maps combining practical advice with informative text on the history, culture and nature of the island. From the myth of Icarus to all-night festivals, hidden villages, stunning beaches and mountain footpaths, this guidebook will lead you deep into Ikaria’s wonderful culture and natural world.

The guide opens with a brief history of the island and a ‘Planning your Visit’ section, including information on when and how to go, what to pack, hotels and restaurants and the places not to miss. It then elaborates on the culture, food, life and entertainment that are on offer. Ikaria’s rich biodiversity, ecosystems, local flora, fauna, and geology are considered in a separate section.

The last part of the guide details 10 walking routes ranging from easy to difficult leading to gorges, rivers, old watermills, castle ruins, peaks, plateaus, the protected ‘Ranti’ Forest, hot springs and more. Each walk features a summary of the route with time, distances, elevation, difficulty ratings and type of markings or signpostings; detailed directions and indications of the places worth noticing. Topographic map extracts show the route trails usually pairing 2 walks. Colour photographs throughout the book bring the beauty of this place to life.
