A lovely walk past olive groves, an old olive press, followed by stunning views of the Marine Park and surrounding islands.

Our walk starts from the edge of Alonnisos, at the rural bay of Gerakas. After being dropped off, we start our 5 km walk to the top.

We make the first half km on the road before branching off to one of the old roads that climb up through the olive groves. As we walk, we will pass an old olive press and some uninhabited houses and for sure we will have many goats wandering around with us at these paths.

After we reach the top, we follow the tarmac road towards Dhiaselo and then branch off down towards the new reservoir. There we take another old road that leads us down towards Aghios Dimitrios. This part give us spectacular views into the Marine Park and surrounding islands.

Arriving at Aghios Dimitrios, we can take a cooling swim and enjoy our picnic lunch.

From there, we can proceed along the road towards Kalamakia port (approx. 2km) where our walk ends.

Before our transport takes us back to Patitiri, we can enjoy a nice cold drink!
