Overview

Join us to discover the hidden beauties of Evia by crossing one of the most beautiful hiking gorges in Greece!

Agali gorge is one of the most beautiful gorges of Evia, heading to the summit of Dirfis, passing through many, small but worthwhile habitats. Its length reaches 6 kilometers, while it is characteristic of the rich vegetation that includes: alpine pine, shrubby plants (holly, oregano, thyme, rosemary and many others), perennial plane trees, buds and flowers. Close to the summit starts a cephalonian fir forest. The longest length of the gorge runs through a stream that forms beautiful lakes and waterfalls. This stream originates from the sources Arkoudovrysi and Kryovrysi, in the gorge, which are the main sources of river Messapis. The name "Agali", as the locals say comes from "agali" (means slowly in greek), as in many narrow and uphill spots, hikers have to walk slowly.

Our hike starts from the village of Agios Athanasios. The route inside the gorge is uphill. We cross the river by the metal bridges that have replaced the old wooden ones. In less than half an hour's walk from the entrance, the gorge gets narrow and towering impressive rocks rise beside us. Our first stop is at Kryovrysi spring, where a beautiful stone fountain with gurgling water awaits us! Then the landscape changes, we say goodbye to the towering plane trees and we hike among pine trees and then to fir trees. We cross sub-alpine slopes and meadows and reach our destination, "Kratia" spring, at 730 meters altitude, with the characteristic giant plane tree. We return throug the same path.
