Meet your guide in the morning at the hiking starting point, or get there from one of the meeting points in Andros Town or Batsi Town with our transportation.

The exciting hiking tour starts from the Monastery, where the monks introduce you to the history of this impressive stone building and its spirituality.

Our hike begins through one of the major routes crossing the Mountain Gerakonas connecting the east coast to the west. The beautiful rural landscape unfolds in front of you the agricultural character of the old times, while you experience magnificent view to the country villages Pitrofos, Menites, Lamyra and the capital of the island, Chora.

Among the uniquely beautiful trail, overgrown with oak and mediterranean maple trees your naturalist guide introduces you to the magnificent herbal world of Andros.

We arrive to the chapel of Ag. Triada in Stavropaida, next to Gavrio-Korthi main road and then we start heading south. The downhill trail follows a dry stream for the most part to reach the chapel of St. Georgios. The route ends at a hill peninsula with the impressive remains of city walls, houses, streets and the temple of the settlement of Zagora, dating to Geometric period. The area has been nominated as a zone of absolute protection against modern interventions. Admire the view to the Archipelago!!! After a short rest, we walk for another 1,5 km to reach the main road where our hiking tour ends.

I had a great time! The island is beautiful and very different from the rest of the Cyclades! team trekking andros really helped me and I met with them what the true Andros is.
