Skiathos Island, Greece - Hiking in the Aegean Paradise
SKIATHOS - HIKING in the AEGEAN PARADISE
A Hiking Guide by Ortwin Widmann
In our book collection at Villa Maestrali, we keep a copy of Ortwin Widmann's wonderful Skiathos hiking guide.
The author has lived on the island for many years and was the first to map and mark 25 beautiful hiking trails, adding up to a total of 197 km.
Having categorised them from easy, to medium, to difficult, and ranging between 1 to 6 hour hikes, his book not only guides you through the island's lush nature to enjoy breathtaking views, rest at romantic picnic spots and visit historic sites. The author is also knowledgable on the large variety of wild herbs and their medicinal uses.
The guide book is obtainable in most supermarkets on the island.

The "Skiathos Hiking Medal" is a fun challenge and can be obtained by anyone making a note of at least 24 code markings of the 25 trails.
Lush vegetation all around, Skiathos is rich in water.
