Hello, followers of our blog!
This post is a reproduction of our big friend Eleni's wonderful blog article «Seven Power Spots in Ikaria». There she has compiled all our maps that we have made on Google Maps, as well as the locations of the island that we love and cherish, places where we have often hiked, places that we have written several reviews about.
You may also check another friend's great article containing some our maps. This is Nana's «Hiking routes by OPS Ikaria on Google maps».
We think that all this can be very useful to hikers. Thanks bloggers!
