Naxos Island

Danakos – Mount Zas

Reach the top of the highest mountain of the Cyclades Islands!

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Conquer the highest peak in the Cyclades
  • Discover the fascinating flora and fauna of Naxos
  • Learn about the historic significance of the Mountain of god Zeus



 

Local inhabitants attributed the highest peak of the Cyclades to god Zeus for good reason. Overlooking the island cluster in all its glory, Mount Zas, as it is known in Greece, stands at 1004 meters above sea level, and is home to many ruins of locals’ former activities. You will discover these structures as you hike your way up on the old footpath, surrounded by varied Cycladic landscapes with fascinating flora and fauna. One of its surprises is an ancient rock inscription ΟΡΟΣ ΔΙΟΣ ΜΗΛΩΣΙΟΥ, which proudly refers to Zeus and his mountain. As you stop to rest on the way and catch your breath, you will be rewarded with the stunning views of the Aegean Sea.
