Στενή Ευβοίας: Ένα από τα ωραιότερα χωριά της Εύβοιας!
Στενή Ευβοίας: Mια χαράδρα κατάφυτη από πλατάνια και καρυδιέ
Αυτό είναι το δάσος που καίγεται στην Εύβοια - Τεράστια οικολογική ...

Now Greek islands are free zone … to travel, so SAS organize the programmed hike on Sunday the 7th of June in Evia island at the foothills of Dirfis mountain.

The hike will take place in a forested area north of Steni village up to the ‘ EOS Chalkidas ’ refuge and way back will be from another footpath combined with a forest road. Total distance is 9 km approx. and duration 6 hours approx. including one hour stop at least at the mountain hut, height difference to be covered 600 m so the difficulty of this hike could be considered as medium.

Meal or dinner could be taken either at the refuge, if it’s open …, or at Steni which is full of traditional taverns, under the shadow of ‘ Platanus ’ trees, we hope without waiting a long queue … cause arrival time at village will be at 16:00. Estimated arrival time in Athens at 21:00.

Meeting point is at 08:15 in N. Erythraia on 162 Tatoiou str. just 100 meters before the Varibopi motorway junction and the traffic lights, as we come from Kifisia, where an Everest café exists at right. There, you’ll find also a car park.
As usual a car pooling system could be applied between us. Estimated cost 36 € per car approximately.

Please declare your participation until 4th of June 21:00 and also if you have car or not and your telephone number.

Leader will be Georgos Foteinos, e-mail geoplanf@otenet.gr Emergency phone 6945 386255.
