Andros is the most northern island of the Cyclades. It is the wettest and therefore the greenest island of the Cyclades. All year long you’ll encounter waterfalls and streams. There are wonderful arched bridges and elegant pidgeon towers.
On October of 2015 the European Ramblers Association ERA certified thé Andros Route (100 km length) as Leading Quality Trail/Best of Europe. Our walks follow as much as possible of this Andros Route.
About the walks
It’s a mini-trekking taking in 4 locations. Almost every day the hike ends at the overnight accommodation. Sometimes a taxi will take you to the start of the walk. Once you’ll be picked up at the end of the walk, although you may decide to walk the rest.
The net walking time is at most 3¾ hours (excluding the breaks). This gives you ample time to enjoy the marvellous views, the many streams and the rich flora!
The walks take place on ‘stenès’ (paved walled paths), country roads and paths. You walk alternately through green and rocky terrain. The paths are in good condition and excellently marked. There may be loose stones though and some parts may be steep.
We thus recommend you to start the tour well trained and prepared with well worn-in ankle-high walking boots.
It’s a tour for people that desire peace and nature and want to enjoy at ease one of the finest European hiking routes.
