Karpathos is the second largest island in the Dodecanese after Rhodes. It is situated between Crete and Rhodes, in the "Karpathian Sea".

In aspect of geomorphology, Karpathos and Saria - the small island north of Karpathos - are two of the most gifted Greek islands. Calcareous rock beds define its morphological character. Over the rock beds of limestones lie more recent beds of stones such as plaster and others. The variety of scenery of the island is unique. The transition from scenery to another and the changes of colors and shapes are frequent and unexpected and never make the visitor feel boredom or monotony. In contrary, high and steep mountains (Lastos, 1215 m. high –the highest in the Dodecanese) compose unique scenery. On the mountains one will see steep dingles, dashing streams, deep caves with stalactites, green valleys with crystal clear waters which spread their melody and breeze everywhere. Moreover, one can find himself in mountain sides, full of pine trees which are spread allover reaching golden and sandy beaches.

With amazing natural beauty and respect for the environment, Karpathos is today one of the islands of the Dodecanese that still retains its traditional character. Its architecture and folklore blend harmoniously, giving Karpathos a unique identity, different from that of the other Greek islands.
