Wonderful walking, remote villages, charming coastline and historic gems

Ruins above Karystos

 Evia is a walker's delight, a real hidden paradise, with old stone paths connecting quaint villages tucked away on the slopes of the mountains. We visit Roman quarries and aqueducts, Byzantine churches and Frankish castles, and often end the days swimming and snorkelling at deserted beaches and coves. Traditional tavernas and waterfront ouzo-meze shops make eating and drinking here a wonderful experience, and we try a different one each night to really make the most of it. A walk down the famous Dimosaris Gorge is perhaps the highlight of any walking holidays in Evia, ending at the coastal village of Kalliani. Walks are optional, usually between four and seven hours long and moderate in grade.
