Nightingale Group

Nightingale Group

Our passion for Samos and its beauty has motivated us to work together to share our experiment.

We are primarily interested to clean old donkey transportation paths no more in use, that nowadays can be used for wonderful walks.

We clear these paths free when overgrown and try to clean them from garbage.

To share these beautiful walks, we mark them and report them in a hiking map for us and tourists.

People who are interested in our work are very welcome to participate in our group for ours meeting or cleaning.

Ours meetings are scheduled every first Thursday of the month at 19:00 in the bar Traffic Cafe in Agios Konstantinos. (except July and August).

Areas of our engagement are the villages along the Nightingale valley:

  • Agios Konstantinos / Ambelos / Stavrinides
  • Manolates / Margarites / Valeontades
  • Vourliotes / Avlakia / Kokkari
