A ride in the water park

The area of Tristomo in Karpathos is located in the heart of the protected area that is included in the Natura 2000 network of the most important ecological areas in Europe. It is a special place made in the water and the stone on which there is no basic infrastructure.

For someone to to go there will have to travel via sea by boat or walk from the nearest village taking one of the two paths that will lead them in the area’s arms.

Easily one can understand that contact with a place like Tristomo presupposes love for nature and a sense of adventure and action. So a walk in the marine park of northern Karpathos seems to be like a journey in time. Iliahtida Project is the road that can get someone to make this journey, a journey that would lead to peace and tranquility that exists in Tristomo and Iliahtida.

In action and adventure that special place can offer to anyone who wants to see and learn about the protected area and its ancient civilization. Living within the protected area and having activities integrated in nature and directly related to the lifestyle of the people of the region, from ancient times such as crops, tree service, animal husbandry, beekeeping fishing etc.

Hi! My name is Manolis and my origins are from a place called Tristomo in Karpathos island, Greece. Here at Tristomo I lived for the first three years of my life. My family then moved into the capital of Karpathos, Pigadia for financial reasons. For the last 15 years I have started slowly to come back at Tristomo, the place I was born, thus my home. Nearly 5 years ago I started implementing a plan to restore Iliahtida a traditional Green House. This project first of all represents my true presence at Tristomo and the creation of a daily life, based on activities such as, cultivation, fishing, beekeeping etc. Then I want to do everything I can to help Tristomo, a place that participates on the Natura 2000 network in the heart of the third Sea Park of Greece. This is a dream that I hope to complete with much effort, work and the help of people who will come to Tristomo and Iliahtida to live with me real experiences in the area, and also help protect this unique site. Thank you.
