While some of the Cycladic Islands are quite popular with international travellers, this trekking tour takes in two islands that are still largely undiscovered: Andros and Tinos! Andros is the 2nd largest and the most northerly island in the Cyclades. Thanks to local springs, Andros is irrigated and thus verdant with a large number of olive trees, pines and fruit trees. One mile from Andros is Tinos, famous for its characteristic dovecotes, and full of picturesque villages and windmills. Twice a year, on March 25th and August 15th, pilgrims inundate the island to visit the famous church of Virgin Mary (in Greek: Panagia).
