Vegetation in the gorges Knosano, Astrakiano and Kounaviano is wild and the waters rich; this is why there are so many mills and aqueducts from various historical periods accompanying hikers along whatever trail they choose.

The section of Astrakiano gorge that we recommend in “Hiking Trails” starts at Kato Astraki. After Agios Georgios church there are stone steps leading to ‘Neraidospilio’ [Fairy-cave]. This is where the trail starts, running alongside the creek, with some basic crossing infrastructure at the difficult points along the way. The old Ottoman aqueduct is visible along the trail.
