Self-Guided Collection

Expertly planned, flexible walking itineraries, led by you, with accommodation, route plans, and luggage transfers all taken care of by us.

Overview

Holiday Highlights

  • Pioneering as the First European Quality Trail situated on an island.
  • Rich heritage of historical mule tracks.
  • Scenic blend of beachfront and rustic inland countryside.
  • Advocate for sustainable tourism practices.
  • Explore Andros town, renowned for its stately mansions.

The Cycladic Island of Andros is conveniently reachable via a 2-hour ferry journey from the mainland. Second in size among the Cyclades, after Naxos, Andros boasts lofty mountains and an intricately sculpted coastline. Andros Routes, a voluntary organization, has meticulously cleared and restored approximately 160 historical footpaths, with ongoing maintenance being a continual effort. The remarkable success of this initiative is attributed to the active involvement of the local community, drawing volunteers from abroad to contribute.

These ancient mule tracks, often bordered by distinctive patterns of walls, guide you through terraced fields, connecting picturesque villages. In contrast to the typical white houses and blue-domed churches of other Cycladic Islands, Andros showcases houses constructed from local grey schists.

Your accommodations are strategically situated, ensuring proximity to serene sandy beaches with a limited tourist presence. The inhabitants of Andros, traditionally engaged in shipping, have maintained a deliberate distance from (mass) tourism, preserving the island's pristine and authentic character.

The Andros Route spans from the South to the North, with stays in four distinct locations, each lasting two nights. This arrangement allows for a harmonious balance between trekking days and optional round walks or leisurely breaks.



  • Eight nights accommodation on a bed and breakfast basis.
  • Airport transfer on day one from Athens to Rafina Port.
  • Ferry from Rafina to Andros.

Day 1

Arrival

Meals

Breakfast

Accommodation

Upon reaching Athens airport, our designated taxi driver will transport you to the Rafina port, where you will embark on an afternoon ferry journey to Andros. The ferry ride typically lasts around 2 hours. Upon reaching the Gavrio port on Andros, you will then proceed to Ormos Korthiou via a local bus, which takes approximately 1 hour. The island's public buses are synchronized with the ferry arrival times.

Upon your arrival, you will be presented with a welcome package containing a small pruner and gloves. These items are provided to encourage your participation in the activities organized by the voluntary organization 'Andros Routes.' You have the option to assist in maintaining the trails during your walks by trimming vegetation along the paths.

If your flight arrives after 14:30 hrs, we recommend booking an additional night either in Rafina, the village of Mati (located 5km from Rafina), or in Athens before the scheduled program begins. In such a scenario, you can take the morning ferry to Andros.

Spending Money

Holiday Budgeting

If your holiday does not include dinners (see itinerary) we recommend budgeting an additional £25-30 per day.

The currency in Greece is the euro.

Tipping

Tips are not included in the holiday price. Although entirely at your own discretion, tipping is an important aspect of tourism and hospitality life and expectations are fairly high.  We strongly recommend when receiving good service you make a tip to the local supplier.

Passports and Visas

European Passport Advice

If you are planning to travel to an EU country (except Ireland), or Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino or Vatican City, you must meet the Schengen area rules.

Your passport must meet 2 requirements. It must be:

  • less than 10 years old on the day you enter (check the ‘date of issue’)
  • valid for at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave (check the ‘expiry date’)

For some Schengen countries your passport may need to be less than 10 years old during your whole visit, and the 3 months at the end of your visit may need to be within 10 years of your passport’s issue date.

Check both the issue date and the expiry date in your passport. If you renewed your passport early, extra months may have been added to its expiry date. This could affect the requirement for your passport to be less than 10 years old.

Non British Passport holders should consult the host country’s embassy for applicable passport and visa entry requirements.

Meals

Breakfasts are taken in the hotels each morning with a selection of homemade goods and local products. Items for lunchs are available from local shops and it is recommended you take a picnic lunch with you each day. In the evening you have a wide choice of taverns in Andros Chora, Batsi and in Gavrio. In Ormos Korthiou limited possibilities.

Footwear & Kit List

Footwear

Footwear is a walker’s personal choice; however, we suggest lightweight waterproof walking boots with a good, moulded sole (such as Vibram or similar) and a deep tread and which provide ankle support and may be essential for some walks.

Luggage Transfers

When you travel on a ferry you always take your luggage with you.

Travel Insurance

It’s a condition of booking that you obtain adequate travel insurance, from a reputable provider, to undertake the holiday, including UK trips chiefly due to the cancellation element of cover.

The policy must cover the period from the date of booking to the last day of your trip and should include, as a minimum, cover for: medical expenses (including the consequences of a Covid positive test result), mountain rescue including helicopter rescue, death, repatriation, cancellation and curtailment and shall not have exclusion clauses limiting cover for the activities you will partake in on your trip, including altitudes reached in the holiday arrangement. It is your responsibility to check that your policy is adequate for the nature and destination of the holiday booked.

Once you have obtained your travel insurance, please provide us with the name of your travel insurer, the policy number and the insurer’s 24 hour emergency assistance number.

In the event that you fail to obtain suitable Travel Insurance we shall not be liable for any costs incurred or claims made against us due to your failure to comply with this term.

If travelling outside the UK you must carry proof of insurance with you and produce it if reasonably requested to do so by RWH Travel staff, tour leaders or suppliers. No refunds will be made should you be excluded from the walking programme through being uninsured or you being unable to demonstrate that you are insured.

Our house broker MPI should be considered for whom we are an affiliate and contact information is on our website and will be referred to in your booking confirmation.

If you are travelling to an EU country or Switzerland please also ensure that you have either an existing valid EU EHIC card (European Health Insurance Card) or a valid UK GHIC (Global Health Insurance Card). You can apply for a UK GHIC free of charge on the NHS website at https://services.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/cra/start.

EHIC & GHIC Cards

Starting January 1st, 2021, you, as a UK traveller, can continue using your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) throughout its valid five-year period, granting you access to medical assistance during your holiday until its expiry date. Be aware, though, that this coverage will no longer extend to Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, or Switzerland. In case you don't have a valid EHIC, you can apply for a new UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC), which will replace the EHIC as it gets phased out.

It's essential to emphasize that the EHIC/GHIC, while valuable, should not be regarded as a substitute for comprehensive medical or travel insurance. For your peace of mind and comprehensive coverage, considering additional insurance is highly recommended.

Additionally, our Trust invites applications for small grants from local organizations in the UK that require support for walking-oriented activities. This encompasses initiatives such as establishing footpaths and bridleways, funding for the reconstruction of bridges and refurbishing huts, and bursary funding for organisations that support individuals to enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors..

Heart & Sole is a venture managed by our office staff, whose aim is to reach the heart of the communities in the countries we visit. Through Heart & Sole, we hope to make more of a long term, direct impact to these communities, particularly in less developed countries where even a small amount goes a long way.
