Paths in Kos Island

Kos (Town)

Kos is not only the city but the mountainsides too. Routes through the beautiful mountainous nature cut off from the rest of civilization overlooking the island and the Aegean. Starting from the town of Kos you can choose either the trail that passes through the village of Platani near the Asclepion of Kos, or the route that passes by the mountain Sympetro and the wildlife shelter. Common destination:  Asfendiou district and the beautiful Zia!
The distance for the route from Kos town to Asfendiou is around 10 km and you can travel it by car or bicycle and the second route, until you reach the wildlife sanctuary, is 13 km and you can travel it with mountain bike or on foot, since the car is extremely difficult to go through the treacherous canyon roads there. For the second route that goes through the shelter you should pay attention as at some point it is so difficult that it is also called "Calvary." One of these routes also lead to “Piso Therma”.
You have to be careful with these Routes since the road is bumpy in most of them. Always carry a map with you so you can travel through the gravel and asphalt roads. It is also important to bring along plenty of water and maybe food, since long distances under the sun can cause dehydration.
