M. AlonnisosSights: Alternative Tourism of Alonnisos

Nature Tourism

Alonissos’ landscape is ideal for day trips and long walks in nature. Enjoy local forests and wildlife; visit the chapels and bays found on the island. And to refresh yourself, have a swim in the crystal blue sea! It’s also a nice idea to walk along some of the most beautiful ravines, such as Vathi Rema rising from Megalo Chorafi and flowing into Megali Ammos beach. Or, you could also explore the fascinating ravine of Kastanorema that cuts the north-eastern part of the island in half before flowing into Strovili beach.
Adventure Tourism
Get in touch with nature and adventure! Canoeing and kayaking are two of the most popular water sports to enjoy nature and explore the local marine park. Go hiking or bike-riding with your friends and family, and enjoy the beautiful natural scenery or join one of the local hiking and bike-riding clubs. Fishing and boating tours help your body and mind feel refreshed! Last but not least, mountain walking is a great alternative for nature lovers. Travel agencies and outdoor activities clubs make special offers for adventure-loving
tourists.
Diving Tourism
The sea world has so many new experiences to offer! The largest natural marine park of the Mediterranean Sea is found in Alonissos. Its impressive wildlife and amazing  andscape give the feeling of intact natural surroundings. It’s no coincidence that Alonissos is the natural habitat of the Mediterranean monk seal (Monachus monachus) and other rare wildlife species forming the precious ecosystem of Northern Sporades. Incomparable natural beauty meets ocean myths and legends. Marine archaeology has
verified the existence of old shipwrecks of historical interest dating back to the 4th and 5th centuries or the Byzantine period. Since 2011, there are 14 spots in the marine park where diving is allowed. Experienced and properly trained professionals provide all support and services necessary for a magnificent scuba-diving experience.
Homeopathic Medicine
The International Academy of Classical Homeopathy (IACH) (www.vithoulkas.com, www.vithoulkas.edu.gr, www.vithoulkasbooks.gr) sits in Alonissos. IACH is the only nstitution in the world dedicated exclusively to the teaching of Homeopathic Medicine. The aim of the International Academy of Classical Homeopathy is to train medical students, doctors and other health professionals in order to become certified classical homeopaths, according to the principles of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. Every summer, doctors from all over the world (Germany, Italy, Sweden, Norway, United Kingdom, Russia, USA, Canada, Australia, Japan, India, Mexico, Brazil, Greece, etc.) are trained at the International Academy of Classical Homeopathy. Since 1980, the International Academy of Classical Homeopathy has provided training to 9,000 doctors and homeopathic practitioners from 32 countries.
The International Academy of Classical Homeopathy plays a significant role in promoting Medical Tourism in Alonissos.
