We will start our walk from Kalogeriko in Chora, the capital of the island, descending towards the impressive Monastery of Panagia Chozoviotissa. We will visit the Monastery and have a close look at this amazing 1000-year-old structure and the views to the endless blue it offers. In continuation, we will follow the path at the southern slopes of Mt Profitis Ilias, a beautiful hike amid one of the most breathtaking sceneries of the Aegean. After passing the areas of Theoskepasti and Xenodochio, we will start our walk back from the northern side of the mountain in Kapsala, following the old school path with amazing views towards the neighbouring Cycladic islands. If conditions allow it, we will deviate towards the peak of the mountain and the chapel of Profitis Ilias, in a seemingly precarious location at the edge of the cliffs. This is the second highest point on Amorgos offering stunning panoramic views to all directions. We will then descend back on track towards Chora and the end of our tour.
