Amorgos • Hiking map 1:32 000

Amorgos • Hiking map 1:32 000

A new and updated in 2021 hiking map of Amorgos island in a scale of 1:32 000, in English and French.

Amorgos Hiking map in scale 1:32 000 is updated with all new footpaths, roads, toponyms and even the diving center.  

From above, Amorgos looks like a skeletal form whose ravines draw the bones, but as you get closer, the continual variations of the landscape become clearer, and make meaning: the archaeological sites of the first European societies, the Hellenistic towers, the monastery in the cliffs, the white houses, the multiple terraces, and modest chapels blessing all this improbable fertility. And then, the beds of small torrents retaining the freshness of water, the numerous wells, ancient cisterns and sources of fresh water overturn the initial impression. All these elements tell the story of the thousand-year-old cohabitation of man in the Cycladic landscape, a story of hard labour, but also of elevation towards a refined spirituality.
And the tale unfolds step by step, revealed to hikers who follow the centuries-old trails of the island.

 The new edition is printed on synthetic paper (waterproof and rip-proof) is even more lightweight and very easy to carry.

Une nouvelle carte de randonnée de l'île d'Amorgos mise à jour en 2021 à l'échelle 1:32000, en anglais et en français.

La carte de randonnée d'Amorgos à l'échelle 1:32 000 est mise à jour avec tous les nouveaux sentiers, routes,  et même le centre de plongée.

D'en haut, Amorgos ressemble à une forme squelettique dont les ravins dessineraient les os, mais en se rapprochant, les variations continuelles du paysage se précisent, et prennent sens : les sites archéologiques des premières sociétés européennes, les tours hellénistiques, le monastère au flanc des falaises, les maisons blanches, les multiples terrasses de cultures, et les modestes chapelles bénissant cette fertilité improbable. Et puis, les lits de petits torrents qui retiennent la fraîcheur de l’eau, les puits nombreux, citernes antiques et sources d’eau fraîche démentent l’impression initiale. Tous ces éléments racontent l’histoire de la cohabitation millénaire de l’homme dans le paysage cycladique, une histoire de labeur dur mais aussi d’ élévation vers une spiritualité épurée.

Et cette histoire se déroule pas à pas, révélé aux randonneurs qui suivent les sentiers séculaires de l’île.

La nouvelle édition est imprimée sur du papier synthétique (imperméable et indéchirable) est encore plus léger et très facile à transporter.

Anavasi maps are all available in digital format (geo-referenced images), combining new technologies with high-quality cartography.
For smartphones we recommend Anavasi mapp. Within the application one purchases each map (corresponding to the printed one) separately. After the map is purchased and downloaded, the application works offline. The map is identical to the printed one and shows your location in the center of the screen. We can also choose one of the proposed routes to follow.

The digital maps available from our online store are geo-referenced map images in 3 different formats. All three are included in the compressed zip file.
1. Map image georeferenced in GGRS87, the Greek Geodetic Reference System (filename *87.tif), which can be used in GIS programs or other cartographic data management programs.
2. Map image georeferenced in WGS84, the global geodetic reference system (filename *84.tif), which can be used in GIS programs or cartographic data management programs.
3. Map image in Kmz format, which can be loaded on most new Garmin GPS models. Please check out the Garmin site to see if your GPS model supports "Custom Maps".
We  recommend to use the digital map always in combination with the paper map that gives us a complete overview of the area and is useful when planning our journey.

It is forbidden to copy and distribute the digital files. They can only be printed for non-commercial use.
