‘Ios Paths’ promotes the island’s trail network
Meanwhile, adventure fans and hiking enthusiasts can learn more on the island’s unique network of trails through Ios Paths, an online guide created a few years ago by a young couple from Ios – Giorgos and Flora.
The guide includes information on more than 20 trails, which can be downloaded on any portable device.
Visitors can also find out more on the religious sites of the island, as well as other tourism attractions that the couple has visited and registered on a map, such as its beaches.
The “Ios Paths” portal is available here.
The Greek Travel Pages (GTP) is a media sponsor of Ios Adventure.
