Olympos (Bus + Boat Tour)
The excursion to traditional village Olympos, takes place with a boat, which starts from the main port of Karpathos Pigadia at 08:30 to the port of Diafani. From Diafani port we reach the beautiful village of Olympos by bus. Olympos is an impressive traditional village situated at the northern part of the island. The village combines an excellent natural environment with a very interesting traditional architectural style. Olympos preserves a rich folk tradition even today. The local dialect preserves impressive remnants of ancient and Medieval Greek. The custom of “enjoyment” which is still observed to a great degree and the traditional costume worn still by the older women as well as the young during festivals, make Olympus an oasis of traditional culture in our time
You can visit the church and the windmills and also a typical Karpathian house and you will have plenty of time to walk around in its narrow paths, talk with the locals and try to live this mysterious atmosphere or to enjoy a delicious lunch.
The bus will return to Diafani where you will have time to walk around or swim in the crystal turquoise water. At 18:00 the boat has you back to Pigadia with fantastic memories!
