Boasting a natural landscape of lush vegetation, dramatic mountains and unspoilt beaches, Andros is a walker’s dream.

Visit in Spring for the ultimate revitalisation following a grey winter, with warm days, few tourists and many beautiful flowers; the two cross-island hiking paths – lined with walnut, chestnut and olive trees – lead to historical sites including the Geometric-period settlement of Zagora and the Monastery of Panachradou.

Walking on Andros costs from £670 pp (two sharing), including six nights’ B&B, some meals, ferry port transfers, full Walker’s Pack and local telephone support. Flights and ferries excluded.
