Our experience starts with a short walk to reach the entrance of the cave. Put on your helmets, switch on the flashlights and let the tour guide lead you in! The cave is an impressive spectacle composed of stalactites, stalagmites, and helictites, hanging rocks, colorful limestone and gourformations. After the visit, we start our hike, ascending the mountain with first destination Fallika Village. Savor the beautiful surroundings, and at the top, admire the magnificent view to the town.

The hiking tour continues on the old cobbled path, crossing the abandoned village of Petria and through oak trees and beautiful agricultural scenery we reach the picturesque village “Vrachnou’. From now on we can see the green valley of Livadia and Andros Town. Your guide leads you to the center of the town where our hiking day tour ends.
