An island with an altitude up to 1611 meters (Moon) but also pebbled beaches, springs, renowned spas, unique antiquities. An island in which 'was born' the Victory of Samothrace!

The north side of the island, in particular, is favored by the region's microclimate and is literally 'drowned' in green. At a high altitude dominate the forests with trees, oaks, chestnut trees and cedars. At the lower part spreads a 'jungle' by all sorts of bushes; according to the studies in Samothrace sprout around 20 rare species of shrubs. In the Pasture lands the air showers by the scents of nature; thyme, oregano and all sorts of aromatic and medicinal plants.

In the Martini forest you will encounter age-old oaks. The forests beside the rivers cool hundreds of streams with crystal clear waters, stemming from the mountain Saos and rolling rapidly towards the sea.
