1st Walk: Nature Interpretation Walk

The interpretation walk is found at the centre of Tilos island and its beginning is close to the main road of the island (near the helicopter airport). Its direction is north-eastern and it is 2.500 metres long. It is an old island path that leads to a former Italian observatory that was built at the top of ProphitisIlias (or Olympus). The walk has big slopes, low vegetation and many rocks and, in general, is of moderate difficulty. We encountered it at the western side of Prophitis Ilias.
