Hiking in Skyros
Skyros offers an inexhaustible field for hiking and exploration. Some 5 routes are circling the highest peak, Kochylas; most of them are quite long and demanding. The loop trail from Chora to Panagia Lympiani is easier and in a much more friendly environment. Shorter trails, such as the hike around Palamari and the walk from the Chora to Molos, are meant for families and groups.
