Make the most of your precious holiday time on Thassos and see another side of the island. There are a range of activities to whet your appetite. Why not take a boat trip around the island, there is always a choice, sail boat, motor yacht and organised group boat trips. If you charter your own boat you don’t have to confine yourself just to Thassos, a trip across to the Athos peninsular of Halkidiki which is the ancient home of several Orthodox monasteries. The islands of Limnos and Samothraki are also popular destinations. The organised group boat trips are an easy and inexpensive way of getting to see parts of the island only reachable by boat.
The beaches and seascape of Thassos are definitely impressive and enough for most people but it would be a pity not to explore the interior of the island. You will be transported to another world! Dense forests of native Plane, Pine, Cedar and Oak trees provide refreshing shade and serenity. You will see huge ancient Plane trees which have their roots in the cooling waters of the many mountain streams. Reward yourself with a view enjoyed by the ‘Gods’ from the peak of Ipsarion (1204m) which gives you an amazing panorama all the way to Samothraki and the Turkish coast. You have a variety of ways to see the verdant interior of Thassos including jeep tours, bicycle tours and walking tours. For each of these you can choose between ‘going it alone’ or as part of a guided tour.
