Tour overview

A few words about Xirovouni …

Xerovouni is a limestone mountain in central Evia and is essentially a continuation of Dirfy mountain complex. Its highest peak, Portaris, is 1,453 m high.

The vegetation of the mountain is consisted mainly of pine and fir trees and secondly of beech and chestnut forests.

Our route …

The route we will  follow, starts near Dirfy’s shelter and ends at Xerovouni Plateau, where you can enjoy the view of the peaks and the imposing wall.

We start for our hiking experience, enjoying the marvelous view of the majestic Dirfy mountain on our left and Xerovouni mountain on our right, that cause awe as they are the highest part of Evia, at 1,743 m and 1,453 m respectively.

Then we will walk on our path, in the forest, rich in flora. Do not get confused because of its name, since nothing but “dry” is Xerovouni (in Greek it means Dry mountain), since there are many springs and great vegetation from evergreen and deciduous trees. As we go up the landscape will become alpine with magnificent rocks embracing the peak!
