Naxos: The Mediterranean Diet Experience with Food & Drinks

2. Naxos: The Mediterranean Diet Experience with Food & Drinks

Spend a morning with us and connect with our authentic local lifestyle. You will enjoy the sensations of idyllic settings – far from the crowd –beyond massive tourism and staged tourist space! Research suggests that Greeks in rural settings live long and healthy lives in impressive numbers. A fact attributed to daily physical activity, the Mediterranean Diet, renowned for its simplicity and natural ingredients, including plenty of olive oil paired with fresh, non-processed food, as well as the characteristic slower paced, low stress country lifestyle. We begin our countryside experience with a short drive to a tiny, off-the-beaten-path, village where time stands still. On the way, you’ll learn about the flavorful food and tastes of Naxos. Once we arrive, you’ll step into a traditional coffee shop to delight in honey-tasting and local herbal teas. A walk through the sights and sounds of the village leads to the orchards where we’ll hike through unspoiled Nature. We’ll pass local farms before reaching our glorious final destination; a young farmer’s olive grove in a mythical setting with natural springs and cascades. Our host welcomes us to olive oil tasting and ‘farm to table’ local product sampling under an olive tree where the sound of the little waterfalls is like music to our ears. You’ll savor a variety of Greek olive oils and learn about our ‘liquid gold’, with its nutritional benefits, as well as the historic presence of olive trees on the island, and the current harvesting techniques. Gathered ‘Around the Farmer’s Table’ we enjoy the pairing of different types of olive oil with the homemade specialties of the farmer’s organic brunch creating a memorable gastronomy experience, sprinkled with Naxian magic!

What people are saying about Naxos

Absolutely amazing tour! Natasha was the best tour guide as she was so knowledgeable and friendly!! She was so accommodating to my mother who needed a little extra help. The food was excellent and I couldn’t believe the amount we tasted. From donuts, to wine and cheese, olives and capers, to a full sit down meal that we shared. It was one of the highlights of my trip and I would recommend to anyone.

Can't say enough about Maria Daphne as our guide. Her combination of friendliness, warmth and thorough knowledge of Naxos made our food tour through the town a delight. Not only does she know about the food (and the places that serve it) but her ability to weave in history and culture made this an unforgettable experience and the highlight of our trip there.

Our guide was fabulous in sharing the history of the food such as the way cheese was made as well as the area we were walking in. She was such a pleasure to have as our guide and made the experience more meaningful.

It was wonderful, great stories and histories from Maria. Thank you!

Great value, excellent variety of locations, and history throughout.
