Hike through the old Venetian trails

Meet your guide in the morning in Chora and get a transfer to the abundant ravines of Menites, where a small detour takes us to the springs. 


This magnificent hiking trip starts from the green village and via an excellent trail under the shade of plane trees leads us to the settlement of Messaria, the old Byzantine center of the island. With our destination being the Panachrantou Monastery (alt.500m), a living historical and architectural monument (wooden carved temple 18th c, library etc), we follow the paved path, crossing the legendary arched bridge of Stichiomeni (The Haunted). After a challenging uphill for some minutes we arrive at the abandoned village of Petrias, a monument of Andros folk architecture. Upon our arrival to the monastery the hospitable monks guide us around. After a short rest and a picnic at the monastery’s yard, we will start our way back to Chora.

This time heading to Livadia and through the “Potamos” stream we reach Andros Town to end our hiking tour.

The team is very thoughtful with you. Organisation is perfect. I really recommend Trekking Andros! Don’t hesitate
