Hike through old paved trails and verdant landscapes

Meet your guide in the morning and get to the verdant and mountainous village of “Arni”. On this half day hiking tour we explore the mainland of the island through fertile ravines and streams, old abandoned farm houses, small forests of oaks, planes, chestnut and walnut trees.

Arni-Valley-Andros-Cyclades

The village is built on a smooth slope at an altitude of 500 meters. The area is one of the most forested on the island. The park of Kanavas is a natural beauty area with rich vegetation and running waters.

“Arvanites” settled in the area of Arne in the 14th century after the invitation of the Venetian conquerors. The old dialect remains in use in the region even today, though, it is spoken by few.

The trail crosses three consecutive hills in absolute beauty scenery and descends towards “Katakoilos” where the river passes through the scattered settlement. After a short rest and a light picnic at the shady square of the village, the route continues to Batsi. With beautiful view to the sea and to Batsi bay, a well preserved narrow trail with the typical dry stone walls, leads us to the town.

A route of great variety and wealth of rural landscapes connecting central with south Andros.
