4X4 ACROSS THE ISLAND
On this off-road tour of the island you'll discover that the most exciting roads to travel are dirt roads. And there are viewpoints where you'll want to take a thousand selfies. They include the Armenisti Lighthouse and its marine headland. Do adventures make you hungry? Discover what taramosalata is in a typical taverna in Ano Mera.
- Armenisti headland lighthouse
- Agios Sostis: sightseeing tour
- Ano Mera, Monastery of Panagia Tourliani and food tasting in a typical taverna
- City of Mykonos
- Some of the roads on Mykonos are only suitable for a 4x4. You'll board yours at the port of Tourlos after a briefing with our local guide.
- Get ready: with all the photos and videos you'll post on Instagram, your friends will know every detail of your holiday before you even get back home.
- In the north, after bouncing around a little on the local dirt roads, you'll find yourself at a headland on which stands the Armenisti Lighthouse, with the Aegean Sea and the Island of Tinos in the background. Here, far from the bustle of the city, the only sounds you'll hear are the birds, toads and wild rabbits.
- Back on the 4x4, you'll set off for the wild cove of Agios Sostis. Before you lies the large bay of Panormos and a distinctive little white church with a red roof.
- Then it's onward to Ano Mera. With a stop to visit the village and the monastery of Panagia Tourliani. Here you will also experience a food tasting in a local taverna to try taramosalata, a creamy fish roe meze.
- If you have 4-wheel drive, you need to use it: so coming up next is a climb to the highest point on Mykonos to admire the view of the island's little white houses and windmills.
- Then it's straight to Chora for a free tour of the city. If the island's capital feels like a maze, that's because it was done on purpose to discourage pirates. Don't miss Little Venice.
