Samothraki: the island of the Great Gods

The island of the Winged Victory (Niki – currently on display at the Louvre) and the Kabeirian Mysteries.

Full of mysterious energy

Chosen by the Gods of the sky, nature and the sea who once resided here and left their marks which are still obvious today to even the senses. The huge massif which reaches up higher than any surrounding Aegean island, Mount Saos, was chosen by Poseidon as a vantage point from where to observe the Trojan War.

Wild natural beauty, vegetation abundant till the edges of the seashore, world-renowned canyons, 61 streams, natural rock carved (“vathres”), the highest waterfalls in Greece (Kremasto) falling straight into the sea, untouched beaches and crystal clear seas, internationally recognized antiquities, local products and gastronomy. But also the traditional villages, a living heritage, standing, still unspoiled by time. Chosen to be a part of the Natura 2000 network, as well as the UNESCO “Man and Biosphere Program”, and of course chosen by thousands of visitors every year. The complete harmony of nature, culture, wild beauty, mountain and sea enchants. Words are not enough…
