Sifnos is an ideal place for hiking. With its trail network being one of the most organised ones in Europe, it can promise its visitors unique experiences.
If you are familiar with technology, you can find all the trails of Sifnos on the webpage http://www.sifnostrails.com. If, on the other hand, you prefer traditional navigation with a map in hand, you can buy a hiking map in one of the island’s bookstores.
In case you are scared of wandering alone in the mountains, you can visit the webpage http://sifnoshiking.com and find organised excursions to the trails that are led by professional mountain guides.
If, on the other hand, you are a sea lover and a water sports enthusiast, you will find what you are looking for in Platis Gialos and Vathi.
The island’s touristic companies organise daily excursions with boats to beaches of the island that are difficult to access otherwise, as well as visits to neighbouring islands such as Kimolos, Paros, Milos and others.
If the bottom of the sea is what fascinates you, an educational diving centre operates in the island. In the case of fishing (undersea or not) being what appeals to you, Sifnos is an attractive fishing spot that will compensate you for your efforts.
In an island with an ancient tradition in pottery that goes back to the Protocycladic era, it would be interesting to visit one of the pottery laboratories that are sparsely situated in Sifnos. Among them you will find our family laboratory named “Ceramics Lebesi”, that has moved from Heronissos to Artemonas and is operating there since 1984.
If you would like to spend your time in a more productive way, you can even take classes of traditional greek dances or greek cuisine.
