Kythera Trails were opened in the past by the inhabitants of the island and in many cases functioned as the main destinations on treacherous canyon roads, or as a shortcut between the main roads. Later, due to the decline in population and the corresponding reduction in agricultural work, many of these were closed by vegetation, but some of them continued to maintain the passage of wild goats and their traces preserved until today.
These hidden paths reveal the unseen aspects of the island, generously offering all the greatness of Kythera-lovers of nature and exploration. The acquaintance of the landscape at the speed of walking gives an opportunity for the eye to see and understand the natural environment in all its fullness, thus transforming this activity into an experience, which ultimately is a true recreational exercise.The natural beauty of Kythera island is an attraction for all hikers and especially in recent years there is a large increase of visitors dealing systematically with this activity.
