Hiking Tour at the watermills of Frousseoi

 

Explore the north of Andros

Meet your guide in the morning and get a transfer to the north of Andros. This half day hiking tour will guide you on the trail of the old mill village of Frousseoi. One can be surprised by the use of water as energy in Andros, considered Cyclades as a dry and windy complex. The water mills of Andros are the clearest proof for the human ability to coexist with the natural environment and use ti for their basic needs. The large quantity of water mills were built in the 19th century and around 1830 there were 137 in operation across the Island.
Exploring with an experienced local guide, you’ll walk through this unique ravine between Ammolohos and Palestou. Enjoy this walk along the stream where you will meet ruins of watermills along, with homes that operated until the mid- 20th century and were altogether the unique mill village that served the surrounding villages. On today’s expedition you will hike a small part of the stream, but enough to admire the architecture and the impressive operating system that supplied water to the water mills. Rest with a light picnic under the trees in as lush vegetation, so surprised for Cycladic island . Admire the scenery and rest at the riverbed with a light picnic.
At the end of your hike, you will be transfered at the nearby beach of Zorgos with real blue crystal water. Swim and rest. You will be transfered to the meeting point.

Arianas' knowledge about the fauna and history of the old water mills was really interesting and my daughter really enjoyed the walk stopping en route to play in the crystal clear water . We finished our walk at Zorgos beach probably the best beach I have ever been to and enjoyed a swim and picnic . A really enjoyable day .
