The island of Samothrace (Samothraki), in the North Aegean, lies 34 km southwest of the Thracian city of Alexandroupolis. It is the second highest island in the Aegean: Mount Saos rises to 1611 m. The island is small, at 176 square km, but it contains one of the ancient world's great mystery sites, the Sanctuary of the Great Gods, including the Great Mother of Axeiros and the Kabiri. Samothrace is not on the main tourist route, but the natural beauty of the island, with its rivers, forests and mountains, has the capacity to enchant all those who come here. Access to the island is by boat only, adding to its charm.
