From 2009 until today we have revived a network of 180km of old hiking trails of Andros, making it the only island in Europe that has a continuous long-distance hiking trail with the prestigious European quality certification Leading Quality Trail by the European Confederation – European Ramblers Association.
In October 2018, about 1000 pairs of feet walked the paths of Andros with us, within the framework of the 1st Andros on Foot Festival. The enthusiasm of those who participated in the 1st Andros on Foot Festival, also supported the organization of the 2nd Andros on Foot Festival in October 2019.
