Alonnisos on Foot, A Walking and Swimming Guide is a helpful book if you want to experience the island on foot. Apart from the beauty of the landscape, the island
also has a widespread network of old transport routes from the era where mules and donkeys where the only means of transport. Most of these paths are kept clean by the EOT (Greek Tourist Organization) to ease the way for hikers.
The routes that we have chosen in our book cover a big area of the island and offer a wide variety of both natural and cultural points of interest. You visit the historical old village of the island, the small fishing villages with their colourful fishing boats and turquoise-green water; you pass from great views to deep ravines and beaches with crystal-clear water.
You walk along footpaths and earth roads as much as possible but also a little on asphalt. The landscape on Alonnisos is hilly and on most tours it goes up and down but in most cases with an easy gradient.
