We came here twice during our stay on Samos, the first time we were unprepared for the water - but we didn't want to miss out! A lovely walk from the coast road, passing one of the oldest churches on the island. The further in...More

Me and my boyfriend traveled to Samos for a relaxing vacation, but this activity was perfect. Beautiful surroundings and a nice walk through the water. We were there early which was perfect. The stairs leading up to the resturant and the big waterfall are quite...More

The waterfalls themselves are not that impressive but the way to them is beautiful. Nice cool walk through the forest with birds and streams being the only noise. There is also a very nice chapel along the way. Enjoyable and relaxing, so worth going for...More

A little tiring, but the view is amazing. You need to keep your stuff over your head to get in the water and reach the waterfalls and you have to be wearing waterproof footwear and your swimming costume, as you go through the water.

We were a group of less young ( 55-65) adults and enjoyed a day trip to Potami. It’s a lovely easy walk on the shores of a small river, under the shadow of trees. After 200m there is a 11th century Byzantine church ( the...More

Amazing opportunity to walk 10 minutes in the nature in order to reach the end of the small river. Starting from there you can walk in the river, 1 meter deep at its deeper part, climb using ropes and bare rocks the 3 different levels...More
