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

This walk starts from the edge of Alonnisos, at the rural bay of Gerakas. After being dropped off, you start a 5 km walk to the top.

You 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 you proceed, you will pass an old olive press and some uninhabited houses and for sure you will accompany many goats wandering around!

After reaching the top, follow the tarmac road towards Dhiaselo and then branch off down towards the new reservoir. There, you take another old road that leads down towards Agios Dimitrios. This part offers spectacular views into the Marine Park and surrounding islands.

Arriving at Agios Dimitrios, you can take a cooling swim and enjoy your picnic lunch.

From this point, you can proceed along the road towards Kalamakia port (approx. 2km) where this picturesque walk ends.

Before your transport takes you back to Patitiri, you could certainly enjoy a nice chilled drink!
