On foot - Samothrace
Samothrace is a lush green place with very rich vegetation. The most common trees are olive, oak, chestnut, plane and bush trees. The mount Saos or Saoki with its imposing peak, Feggari (1670 m) is a real challenge for climbers (Alpine Club of Samothrace, tel. 25510 89209). Near Loutra, in a region with dense vegetation you will find natural pools, known as Vathres. The ravishing scenery of exceptional natural beauty is composed by age-long plane trees, crystal water springs and imposing waterfalls. Furthermore, the route along Fonias stream passing through plane trees, elms and ferns is of unique beauty.
The Archeological museum of Samothraki includes findings from excavations that took place during the 20th century in the ancient town (Paleapoli). Together with the findings the museum exhibits the model of Nike of Samothrake.
