Trekking Trail 5: Apollonia - Panagia Niliou - Vathi


DifficultyLittle experience

EquipmentNot required

Average Distance9 km

Average Duration3h50'

One of the nicest and most large trails-paths of the island is the one that starts from Apollonia, rises in Katavati village, passes near Firogia Monastery directing to the beautiful chapel “Panagia Niliou”, and ends up at the Vathi bay and the homonymous village there. The total length of this trail-path is 9 Km and its duration is approximately 3 hours and 50 minutes. The trail-path runs along the island and its biggest part is integrated into the European program Natura 2000. The images you will change while trekking in this path are many and impressive, since you will have the the opportunity to get introduced to Sifnos nature, to see the Monastery of Firogia, to pass between Profitis Ilias Monastery and Agios Andreas church, while in its second half you will be able to have wonderful views of the western coastline of the island as well as the neighboring islands, Milos and Serifos. If you are a trekking-activity lover, do not miss this one.
