Nightingale Valley – Manolates Hiking

Explore together with our professional guides the mountains of north Samos

The tour – after the bus transfer – starts in the coast area underneath the mountain village of Vourliotes. You will meet with the guide and talk about the hike as well as areas that you will experience  during the day.

After the stop we start our walk across the Nightingale Valley, vineyards, crossing the Kakorema River & then continue our path to the village Manolates through the shaded forest.

In Manolates village we make an one hour stop to explore the artists’ workshops and enjoy lunch in one of the tavernas (not included in the rate) .

Then we continue downhill to the picturesque area of Platanakia, the biggest plane-tree forest of the island to meet the bus for the way back to the hotels.
