AREA OF LIGONAS, MOUNTAIN VILLAGES OF  PETRI AND VAFIOS, TO EFTALOU/MOLIVOS
In this package many routes are conceivable, in which you either pass by or go through a valley with ruins of watermills. In the past 17 watermills were active here, where  nearby farmers brought their grain to grind. The ruins of these mills are surrounded by beautiful, volcanic rock formations and mountains. Lunch break can be held in one of the picturesque villages of Petri ,Vafios or Molivos, according to the choice of the route.


2. AREA OF AGIOS ALEXANDROS - SKOUTAROS
This trek takes you through olive groves winding up to the former living quarters and sanctuary of Saint Alexander(4-5th  century).After crossing this nice valley, with its breathtaking rock formations, it goes to the direction of the mountain village of Skoutaros. It’s worthwhile during early spring to diverge from the route a little bit, to go and see the enclosed waterfall “lakkos tis koukougias’.

 3. AREA BETWEEN LAFIONAS AND SKOUTAROS
The walk begins in the mountain village of Skoutaros, where an astounding view of the villages Petra, Molivos and the Turkish coastline awaits.
About 15 minutes of walking outside and above the village, we will find the path that will take us to a height of more than 500 meters while passing through olive groves and pine forest to the descending sand path leading to the village of Skoutaros. During this hike a break is taken at a lovely old 'aloni', the place where farmers used to thrash the grain.

4. COASTWALK SKOUTAROS - TSIGRADA - AMBELIA - PETRA
This is a wonderful hike to the beaches of Tsigrada and Ambelia, following the goat paths above the coastline. You have the opportunity to swim in the bay of Ambelia, or take a break at the quaint cafe on the beach .Continuing our walk through olive groves of the village of Anaxos, and criss-crossing the landscape, we find the path which directs us to our final destination, the village of Petra.
