Route Type: Path.

Vegetation: in the largest part low bushy and in smaller parts dense tree.

Fauna: the Saria Island has been designated as the "Important Bird Area of ​​Europe" as it hosts a remarkable number of rare raptors such as Hieraaetus fasciatus, Buteo rufinus and Falco eleonorae.

Interesting places: the virgin and without traces of human intervention landscape of the island and the wider marine area, the churches of Ag. Spyridon and Ag. Andreas in the first part of the route, the chapel of Ag. Sophia near the settlement of Argos, around which there are scattered ancient columns and remnants of an ancient sanctuary as well as the Early Christian basilica of the 5th - 6th century. Also, the old settlement of Argos with the dozens of farmhouses of particular architecture and beauty and the archaeological site of the palaces located at the site of the ancient city of Nisyros.
Last but not least, the paved cobbled path, from the Saria to the Giaplo, is still of interest.
