Go For Hiking
We cannot think of a better island than Andros for nature lovers and for those seeking a walking adventure.
Andros is mountainous and it is intersected with a number of mountain ridges which create numerous fertile valleys, steep ravines and deep gorges. In comparison to the rest of the Cyclades it rains a lot and there are numerous rivers, streams, springs and waterfalls. As a result the island is remarkably green and characterized by a rich flora and diverse landscape which are waiting for you to explore. The hiking trails selected for hiking, have a strong ecological and cultural interest and through them we will discover all the hidden beauty of this island. These paths include cobble or gravel paths, dirt or cement, ranging from mild to rough rocky terrains, which frequently take you through streams or dense vegetation and are categorized as EASY - MODERATE - DIFFICULT depending on the distance, the field (inclination) / terrain and altitude. Theh trails include some steep parts. Previous experience is not required for these hiking tours, but a relatively good state of health is essential.
