Andros: A paradise for Walking, Hiking and Trekking

Did you know that Andros has one of the most extensive trail networks in the Cyclades? For this reason, Andros island is an ideal place for visitors who enjoy hiking, walking or trekking. Due to its mountainous nature and the variety of springs, Andros offers a unique experience. Hikers in Andros can see lovely historical and natural monuments along their paths: old bridges, watermills, valleys or even small waterfalls! You can walk beside rivers (Achla, Vori, Pythara), have the opportunity to admire “stenes” (stone-walled paths) and enjoy a unique view. Some of these routes almost reach the island’s mountain ridge. Andros is a special island of the Cyclades with plenty of water reserves, mountainous terrain, a sharp relief and extremely varied scenery. This place is definitely a delight to explore on foot!

Over the last years, there has been a continuous effort by the network Andros Routes to record, maintain and promote these hiking paths. Through their project, all the existing paths and many new paths have been cleared and fully signed, following European standards and managing to offer hikers a complete hiking network of 160km.

Do not miss a moment! Come visit the beautiful island of Andros, wear your hiking shoes and experience an unknown paradise!
