The Island of Ikaria and Armenistis
Ikaria is one of the most unspoiled of the Greek islands, often called 'the beautiful unknown'. The Atheras mountains seperate the rugged rocky cliffs of the south from the gentler landscape of the north with its green river valleys, plane trees and oleander; its scatered villages with olive trees, terraced vineyards and orchards. Beehives are everywhere, and honey from Ikaria is a deliacacy. Ikaria's higher regions are wooded. Holm oaks and ferns grow beween enormous granite boulders and on a clear day you have an unforgettable view of the Cyclades, the Dodekanes and the northern Aegean islands.
Ikaria is a paradise for independent travelers, hikers and nature-lovers. Tourism centers are around the small coastal towns Armenistis, Gialiskari and Nas with their sandy beaches on the glass-clear, turquios-blue Agean sea.
Cars, Jeeps, Scooters and Mountainbikes can be rented in Armenistis.
