Location: batsi andros(See Map)
This route follows the old "ample way" which connected Gavrio and Batsi to the central villages of Andros and Chora. It has a westerly orientation, at an altitude of around 400m, starting on the highest points of Aprovato. The route crosses steep mountain slopes with holy-oak, wild olives and seasonal crops. The shady stoned-path, which has a wonderful view of the sea, passes springs, stone water tanks, old farmhouses, unusual rock formations and two waterfalls, flowing down the steep hills of Kouvara, impressively appearing through the dense plantation of Paleopolis. The main route turns north-east, passing above the Melida watermills and leading towards Ano Pitrofos through a rocky landscape. A worthwhile stop will take part for visiting Dimitris Chelmis renovated olive press. Our day ends at Pitrofos where we will taste local dishes of the island.
