Rural tourism is an alternative form of tourism, which in recent years is gaining more and more ground. The purpose of this kind of tourism is to get the visitor in contact with the tradition and the natural environment of the island. It refers to types of tourist activities which are harmoniously integrated in rural areas and includes several tourist activities that are complementary or they are not in conflict with the rural area.
Samothraki is just such a destination. The visitor comes in direct contact with nature, tradition and culture of the island. He has the ability to walk and to tame the wild unspoiled nature, to contact with an agricultural occupation, to relax away from the stress and the crazy pace of megacities.
