Welcome to Xanthi & Around


It's worth settling here for at least a couple of days, to explore the old town, as well as surrounding natural attractions. To the north, the inky-green Rhodopi Mountains rise to the Bulgarian border: go for forest hikes and thermal baths, and a glimpse of the Muslim Pomak culture in the villages. To the west, take a pretty walk along the Nestos River, or a kayak ride. South of Xanthi, the ports of Keramoti and Kavala have ferries to Thasos and other islands.
