DAY 1
Arrival on Andros | You take the ferry from Rafina (near Athens) to Andros, from where a transfer brings you to your hotel for check-in. In the evening you meet your guide, who gives a preliminary briefing about the planned course of the tour. We then enjoy our first dinner together.

DAY 2
Hike along the “Venetian Trail” and snorkelling | Today we set off from Batsi on a 9 km / 5.5 mi. long hike. First, we make our way to the highest slopes of Palaipolis. We follow a section of the old Venetian trail that connected the west with the east to one of the most impressive natural sights on the island, the Palaiopoli waterfall.

Here we can look forward to magnificent views of the Aegean Sea and the sunken old harbour of the ancient city. We get our day’s adrenaline rush next, as we abseil down to the village below.

But our tour doesn’t end there! We enjoy a break in a traditional “Kafeneio” before starting the beautiful descent to the sea. Once there, we have time for a swim. A special attraction here is snorkelling as you can discover the secrets of the ancient harbour town from under the sea!

DAY 3
Climbing, hiking, and swimming | Today we explore the southern part of the island, combining a climbing course with an incredible nature experience. Our destination is Vouni with its beautiful limestone cliffs and a climbing area of 8-12 km / 5-7.5 mi. consisting of 7 different climbing routes.

You are free to choose which route you would like to climb. From here there is a breath-taking view of the surrounding area and the sea. Those with little or no climbing experience are safely supervised every step of the way so they can learn the basic climbing techniques and how to correctly use climbing equipment.

More experienced climbers have the opportunity to improve their skills in cliff climbing. Our day trip ends on the pristine Grias Pidima Beach in Korthi Bay. Here there is plenty of time to swim, relax or have lunch before we return to the hotel.

DAY 4
River hike and swim | Diverse and beautiful landscapes await us on our moderately difficult hike today from the green Arni to the remote nature reserve, Achla Valley.

We hike through wooded valleys and climb to the highest point of the island. Later we reach the Achla River, which we follow to a magnificent waterfall. Here a wonderful natural river pool entices us in for a swim.

After our refreshing break, we continue our walk and listen as our guide tells us all about the rich flora surrounding us. A narrow path leads to a beautiful old stone bridge which we cross to the other side of the river.

We continue on through a wonderfully shady sycamore forest and finally reach a pristine sandy beach dotted with dunes and caves. Here the river mouth forms a small lagoon, an area important for the island’s biodiversity and home to migratory and a variety of other birds.

Take time to rest, swim and enjoy a picnic. We then return to the hotel by jeep, driving through the north of Andros with its traditional villages and breath-taking nature.

DAY 5
Diving and water sports  | Today’s programme is dedicated to the sea. Diving in the morning, water sports in the afternoon! The coast of Andros is the ideal place to explore the underwater world for first-time divers as well as for those with more experience.

At a depth of only 10 metres in crystal clear warm water, we marvel at the underwater world of eels, octopus, sea bass, bream, and schools of various Mediterranean fish.

In the afternoon, we meet for windsurfing or a 2-hour stand-up paddle board course. Our coach familiarises us with our equipment, gives safety instructions, and shares tips on how to get maximum fun out of our water sports adventure.

There are different lessons for beginners, intermediate and advanced paddlers, so everyone gets their money’s worth regardless of their level of expertise.

DAY 6
Mountain bike tour  | What could be better than exploring more of Andros by bike! After a bike fitting in the morning, we start our moderate, 40 km / 25 mi. long bike tour, which takes us once again to the north of Andros.

We follow small country roads and paths and discover hidden scenic treasures and the traditional villages of northern Andros. Our destination is the beautiful beach of Vitali. Here there is enough time for a break and a swim before we start our return journey.

In the afternoon, you can take the time to enjoy the unique atmosphere of this beautiful Cycladic island.

DAY 7
Departure from Andros | Unfortunately, today our multi-sport experience comes to an end. You take a transfer to the port according to the departure time of your ferry to return to Rafina, near Athens.

From there, you can travel home individually or extend your holiday in Greece.
