Dear friends of Andros,
After an effective lockdown period earlier this year, all tourist accommodation on Andros is open and bookable again. For your safety, to minimise the risk of Corononvirus infection, the Greek government has introduced several strict accommodation hygiene measures that will be in place for the foreseeable future.

To prevent the spread of the Coronavirus there are additional checks for people travelling to Greece. For example, all passengers are currently required to complete an online Passenger Locator Form before entering the country. You can find this form and information on the entry Protocols HERE. For comprehensive information about travel to Greece during the Pandemic we recommend you go to Visit Greece’s  COVID-19 webpage here. The ferries between the mainland and Andros are running, although currently at 50% capacity to allow social distancing. So if you are planning a trip this summer, we recommend booking your ferry tickets in advance.

We are hoping that things will slowly return to normal by the time the hiking season starts in September. We are expecting this year to be much quieter, with fewer visitors, so you certainly won’t have a problem keeping a one and a half meter distance on this tranquil island.

Please take care and stay safe,

Best wishes from the volunteers of Andros Routes.

Andros – an island made for walking

Lush green valleys, flowing rivers, beautiful beaches and ancient pathways. Andros is an island full of surprises. Let us share this undiscovered jewel of the Aegean with you.

Andros Routes was formed by a group of volunteers who love the island, its culture, history and beautiful landscape. Our aim is to develop sustainable tourism on the island by restoring and maintaining the ancient network of paths for hiking. Since 2012 we have restored and signposted over 160km of paths including the Andros Route, a 100km continuous path across the length of the island. In 2015 we were the first island in Europe to be recognised by the European Ramblers Association and the Andros Route was certified as one of the Leading Quality Trails – Best of Europe.
