Mount Ipsarion 4x4 Tour


Great outdoors

On this full day excursion, you'll climb aboard a 4x4 vehicle and head deep into the rugged hills of central Thassos. Cue rocky slopes, remote villages and soul-stirring views. The route takes you to the Theologos springs and waterfalls, Mount Ipsarion and Maries, a typical Greek mountain village. Buckle up and speed off along winding country tracks to our first stop - the settlement of Theologos. Tina, one of our expert local guides, says, ‘The 13th century village of Theologos used to be the capital of Thassos. Here we'll visit Theologos springs and waterfalls, one of the natural treasures of the island.'Local rules in Theologos aim to preserve the village's traditional appearance - you'll notice the harmonious architecture as we set off to Panaguda Monastery. It's a serene place to enjoy the rural surroundings and the peaceful atmosphere. Leaving the monastery, we'll drive on rough tracks to the highest peak on Thassos - Mount Ipsarion. It's quite a mountain, rising to 1204m, one of the highest points in the Aegean islands. From here, the views take in the whole island and extend to the mainland too.On the way back down from the top, on tracks surrounded by wild vegetation and wonderful scenery, we'll stop for a snack before calling at Maries, a mountain village hidden among the cliffs and truly off the beaten track. After a look around the church - built back in 1800 – we'll take a short walking tour through the traditional lanes of the village, and finish with a drink in the central square.
