  • Urgent II for Tinos footpaths

    According to the, urgent I information about footpaths of Tinos, previous e-mail where we noticed, “ Always check until last time ferry’s schedule ! ”, oh … yes the Sunday evening ferry from Tinos to Rafina … converted suddenly to an … afternoon, at 14:30, ferry, so the hike to Ktikados on Sunday will start one hour earlier at 08:30 a.m. and yes … we’ ll use the option to get a taxi from Kionia to Tinos city and save 30 minutes more.
    Estimated arrival time at port by this way is 12:00, so it’s enough time left for a quick meal .. !

    Best regards,
    The organizers
    Georgos and Anna

Duration is 5 hours approximately and total distance to be covered is 12 km. The path from the starting point is always descending towards the sea, the height difference up again is 380 m., but if some like to avoid the ascend, will have the option to call a taxi… from Falatados ( maybe it’ s 15 € for 4 people ).

Total duration of this hike is 4 hours approximately and total distance to be covered 9 km. One more option for those who likes to shorten … the hike to a maximum of 6,5 km is to return from Kionia by taxi, 5 Euro ? … will see !

  • Walking in Parnitha … by night

    Walking  in  Parnitha  …  by night

                 On Saturday the 8th of July, under full moon, SAS organize an easy hike in the footpaths of Parnitha during evening in order to avoid summer’s heat in one hand and enjoy fresh cool air at the other ! Virtually, more than half of the distance is a night walk but not a … nightmare !
    The trail that we’ll follow, leads deep in the dense fir forest and then like a circle return to the starting point. Terrain is not difficult, a little bit rocky in few parts so hiking boots are advisable. It is obvious that head torch is the most important equipment we need..! ‘‘ Mola ’’ site will be the most remote place we’ll reach and duration of this walk is 3 hours approximately. Height differences are not more than 130 meters so the grade of difficulty is considered as ‘‘ easy hike ’’.
