For walkers, Thassos has a lot to give. There are many tracks all over the island. The months of May, June, September and October are especially good months to enjoy the nature. In spring there are so many flowers and in autumn the colours and fruit give pleasure.
There are some maps of the island available, but the best way to learn about walking is the little booklet “Walking on Thassos” written by Truus van de Mast and Rose Gruwel. Every second year there is a new edition, with other walks and corrections. You can buy this booklet in the bookstore “Chartopoli” and the “Leather Lane” shop, both in Thassos Town. At Golden Beach, the booklet is available in “the sunny shop” and “the beach shop”.
For guests who want to learn more about Thassos nature, it is possible to take a walk with Rose; she is a Dutch biologist and nature-guide on the island since 1992. The ins and outs of nature are her life; she lives on Thassos since 1987. She works for all the Dutch travel agencies and the British travel agency Thomson.
