GREENEST ISLAND OF THE AEGEAN
Landscape & Climate
Samos is the greenest island in the Aegean, because unlike the Cyclades Islands, it is overgrown with beautiful varied vegetation. The short, rainy winters provide enough moisture for the rest of the year. Many springs supply the island with the precious wet. A sea of flowering bushes and many cypresses and silvery shimmering olive trees enchant the landscape, and everything is adorned with bright colours.
From April to June, Samos is a single flowering paradise. In the summer months, when it gets hotter, the all-lasting green provides pleasant freshness. And in the late summer months of September to November, which are called autumn, the flower splendour comes out for the second time to decorate the little paradise before the short winter. After that, when the flower splendour has faded, lemons and oranges shine on the trees, and the vines hang full of grapes.
Since Samos has two high mountains that even extend beyond the tree line, after a nice hike you have the opportunity to see 1500 m above sea level over the Aegean Sea or the nearby Turkish mainland.
