Experience the most of your holiday

This Half Day Hiking Tour is one of the best ways to get familiar with the rich naval tradition and history of the island, while you walk through picturesque settlements of Cycladic minimalism and neoclassical nobility. Experience the unique nature of the island as you hike through verdant landscapes and plentiful water springs.

Pythara-Waterfalls-Andros-Cyclades

This hiking route starts from Chora, following the coast of Neiborio and continues via the narrow uphill path to Gialia Beach, where the river forms a unique natural environment. The route crosses the riverbed and after a while the path leads up to “Fabrica” Ebeirikos Watermill, an interesting derelict factory, which gave life to the area before the Second World War, producing pasta using a large watermill, and later a mechanized steam mill. The footpath follows the river, crosses the Leontos bridge and after a few challenging uphill steps we arrive at the impressive Bistis-Mouvelas Tower, dated from the 17thcentury, in Stenies Village.

Our hike follows a stepped path, across lush landscapes of oaks, olive and walnut trees, along the river, to reach Apikia Village and the famous Sariza Spring. We continue hiking, this time to Pythara waterfalls, where we stop for a while to rest and relax with the sound of the water. On our way back, we descend via a different excellent cobbled path and we enjoy the magnificent view to the capital city, the Venetian Castle and the Lighthouse “Tourlitis’.

Andros is the greenest island I’ve been in the Cyclades and an ideal destination for nature lovers and hikers.
