Artemonas is a settlement offered for relaxing walks in the morning or in the afternoon hours. It’s quite interesting to explore the narrow streets and let yourself get carried away by the images and the scents of the flowery yards. Every alley is different and hides many beauties.
You can follow the trail that starts from the main square of the settlement (50m from the hotel) and leads to Apollonia passing through the village of Pano Petali. You can also wander through the narrow streets of Agios Loukas (essentially it is an extension of Artemonas), where the view from the Kastro, Kato Petali and the Aegean Sea is unique.
Apart from the quaint streets of the villages with the financial aid of the Sifnians of Istanbul (immigrants of an earlier era) and with the continuous toil of the inhabitants of Sifnos in their effort to cultivate their fields and move their animals, Sifnos features about 200 km (100 mapped) old trails.
Some trails are paved and others are in good condition thanks to the organized efforts of the local authorities and volunteers in their maintenance.
The hiking trails are highly mapped and there are marks that facilitate the orientation.
