Put some outdoors adventure on your wish list:
If you love outdoor activities, here’s one for your list of things to do on your holidays in North Evia. As greenery returns, so we can once again set out on hiking trails and go chasing waterfalls. Untouched by the fires, Mt Telethrio and Mt Licha (near Edipsos) offer numerous signposted hiking trails (with more continually being marked out).
The best experience is to join an organised excursion where your guide can tell you about the local flora and fauna.
And when it comes to waterfalls, where do we start? The Dafnokouki Waterfalls near Ilia (for hiking and canyoning), Gerakiou Waterfalls near Pefki (reachable by foot or car) and Kremasi Waterfalls in Agdines (in a hard-to-reach part of the forest) are all highlights. The most popular are the Drymona Waterfalls (on a hiking route that passes the Monastery of St David the Elder) in an area affected by the fires but that is now a focal point of conservation efforts (another opportunity to witness nature regenerating). And who said it was only hiking? Horse riding can be enjoyed in Kamatriades, on the slopes of Mt Telethrio (as well as in Agia Anna, as mentioned above).
Nature continues to play a leading role in the experience of visiting Evia, even after the fires. The places that were unaffected continue to offer the same feeling of escape and wellbeing. And the areas that suffered damage, whilst not as beautiful as before, now provide an opportunity for reflection and even hope. Visiting allows you to observe the natural regeneration for yourself and be a witness to the process where, from nothing, a forest is being reborn. It’s as if nature is giving us all a life lesson in the power of recovery through a determination to overcome adversity. It’s another reason behind the mass outpouring of support for North Evia.
