Every week Art and Walk guides you through a forest path to the Agia Kyriaki church overlooking the Aegean sea. The walk starts in Pigadia at the taxi-station where we take the stairs up to a beautiful viewpoint of Pigadia. Along the way you can spot an ancient temple, see old stavlos (old Greek stables), smell the scent of pine trees and local herbs of Karpathos, have a peek inside the Agia Kyriaki church and enjoy gorgeous views of the nearby villages and the sea.

Itinerary Details

Operated by: Art and Walk Karpathos

Meet your guide at the Alpha Bank (old taxi station) of Pigadia early in the morning at 8am. We start at this hour to avoid the summer-heat.

This adventure leads you just outside of the city of Pigadia, following the path to the Agia Kyriaki chapel. You walk passed old stavlos and olive fields while overlooking the Aegean sea and spotting all the Southern villages while you reach the higher part of the walk.

The Agia Kyriaki chapel is open for a visit and offers a great set-up for a break in the shade. Passing through the pine tree forest, you find several lovely views of the Eastern coast by Pigadia unfolding right in front of you.

Once leaving the pine tree forest path you will find yourself back in Pigadia around 11:30am.

The guide stops frequently for photo opportunities and the walking pace is not high. The walk takes about 3,5 hours. It is a challenging walk, with a steep ascent or descent.
