Ikaria is one of the largest islands in the eastern Aegean Sea and has a surface of approximately 270 km and almost 160 km is the coastline. It is located East of Mykonos and West of Samos. It is generally characterized as a mountainous island , with several intense geomorphic contrasts between bare cliffs and green valleys.
Most of the villages on the island are mountainous, with characteristics and features that have emerged throughout history and have been the lightened spot of its culture. It has an extensive river network, rich vegetation, biodiversity and abundance of water.

Ikaria is a place with rich mythological past, and it has connected its name with the mythical figure Icarus.Sandy beaches, running waters, mountains and Lush green hillsides compose the majestic relief of the island. Ikaria is also famed for its thermal springs, unique in the whole world for their chemical composition and radiation.
Ikaria offers something for everyone: remote & cosmopolitan beaches, accomodations to suit all tastes; the famous Ikarian "Panagiria" celebrations featuring music, dancing, food & Ikarian wine; archeological & religious sites of interest; winery tours; language & cooking classes, Greece adventure travel activities (hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, scuba, sailing, yacht charter, jeep/beach safaris) & more...
Ikaria is one of the few exemplary locations in the entire world where people live such long, balanced lives. An important distinction is made for the island and the recording of the 'Blue Zones', a name given in 5 regions of the world ( Ikaria, Sardinia, Okinawa of Japan, Nicoya of Costa Rica and Loma Linda of California, USA), whose inhabitants surpass the life expectancy and reach over the age of 90 years.

The island is also famous for its tradition of panygiria, or festivals. Between May and October, the island is famed for hosting between two and four such events per week. The panygiria, which are usually held in various parts of Greece to celebrate a major religious holiday, such as the most major of all, the 15th of August celebration of the assumpion of the Virgin Mary, in Ikaria are held almost gratuitously, for the sake of gathering communities and visitors for all-night dancing.

Ikaria is named after Ikarus, who according to Greek mythology was the son of master craftsman Deadalus, and who was escaping imprisonment from King Minos in Crete by flying with wings his father had made. But ignoring sage advice, the youth flew too close to the sun and landed to his death on the island.
