naxos-hiking

20 of March! “International Day of Happiness” and Lagos Mare Hotel is portraying the best way to remain happy and healthy at your holidays in Naxos Island!!!
Naxos has an unparalleled and diverse landscape that ranges from the severe beauty of marble mountains and deep valleys to perfect and deserted coastlines.

It constitutes a miniature of Greece, where the fans of trekking and climbing can discover an endless network of stone-paved paths and experience the traditional Cycladic scenery and culture.

Naxos is the largest and perhaps the most beautiful island of Cyclades, so there is no better place visit either you are a fan of hiking or not. We guarantee that you will become one as soon as you explore the unrevealed paths and alleys with its picturesque views.

As the “The Times” and the “Independent” published at previous posts: The best way to get to know Naxos is to walk the island!!!

bullet   The island remains extraordinarily beautiful, filled with ancient Greek remains and Venetian towers, its whitewashed villages and well-watered terraces clinging to the sides of mountain that soar above deep green valleys. Olive trees and vineyards flourish in the fertile soil that for 5.000 years has attracted settlers.” –Patrick Cockburn, The Independent 2011

bullet   There can be few Greek Islands more suited to walking than Naxos, where verdant valleys, orchards and vineyards temper the rocky Cycladic landscape- and where tour operator Walking Plus has introduced guided walks.” –Jill Crawshaw, The Times

Carnival in Naxos – an outstanding experience

lagos-mare-carnivalb

“Apokria” is the Greek term that indicates the period which ends up to Lent, before the Orthodox Easter, and it is usually celebrated in every corner of Greece where great Carnival parades are taking place and a lot of excitement and pleasure overwhelms the participants.

It is also one of the most vibrant traditions of Naxos which is celebrated with festive manner especially the week before the Shrove Monday. The island of Naxos during the time of the “Apokria”, offers the pleasure and the ecstasy of a festival blessed by the ancient Greek god “Dionysus” (the god of wine and feast), which comes to a head on the weekend before the Lent. On this last weekend, celebrations are held in most of the villages and settlements where each of them contributes uniquely to the remarkable amusement of the visitors.

Proper feasts are taking place in every small town where you can savour the traditional dishes followed by plenty of wine and folk music. For example, in “Apeiranthos” village, the commotion and excitement are the dominant features of the “Koudounatoi” custom (the bell ringers), who appear dressed up in a peasant’s hooded cloak and storm the streets of the village shaking their bells accompanied with yells and shouts. On the other hand, at “Chora” on Friday (28th of February) it will be revived the myth of the marriage between god Dionysus and Ariadne and on Saturday (1st of March) it will follow the famous “Torch Race” at the Castle. The events finale will be on Sunday (2nd of March) with the great “Carnival Parade” at the beach of “Chora”. Finally during the Shrove Monday’s (3rd of March) celebrations, the villagers, primarily in the villages of the “Livadi” area, are dressing up in skirts, colourful ribbons and gold coins and they are dancing separated in teams at the villages’ squares. All of these folk customs involving masquerade are probably revived from the times of the ancient Dionysian festivals. Thus, it is not coincidence that these customs of the “Apokria” are taking place during the same time period as the ancient Greek festivals, the Dionysian springtime.

The Carnival peak days for 2014 are between the 28th of February and the 1st of March and Naxos is preparing to present its best festive side with special happenings and events. For this reason, Naxos invites everyone to experience unique moments dedicated to the god of wine and feast “Dionysus” as long as customs steeped in history.
