Hiking Tour from Frousseoi to Gavrio

 

An extremely diverse scenery

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 this long hiking tour you will admire not only the impressive stone buildings along the stream but also a varied scenery as you will continue to Amolochos. The village was the largest of Northern Andros during the Ottoman domination. Crossing the high slopes of Gavrio and with magnificent views to the port and the sea, your hiking tour will end in Gavrio.
