One-day trekking trip to Dirfi, the highest mountain of Evia with an altitude of 1,743 meters, which occupies the 93th place in the altitude classification of the Greek mountains.
Nevertheless, it is considered – and not unfairly – as one of the most beautiful and wild mountains of Greece, with impressive bas relief, great biodiversity and a special microclimate.
Our route will begin just outside the scenic Steni through the Aesthetic Forest of Steni, of 500 hectares long, which is now part of the Natura ecological network, rich in chestnut trees, fir trees, oak trees, plane trees and beeches. A path in a dense forest that will clear the mind and fill your soul with unique images.
In the second half of the route, we will cross for a while a rocky part of the forest and will have a view of the majestic volume of Dirfi and south of the alpine Xirovouni. In less than 10 minutes, we enter the last part of the route, which is in dense forests, known as “Elatia”. The path ends at the “Michalis Nikolaou” Shelter of the Hellenic Mountaineering Association of Chalkis at 1120 meters.
In the shelter, we will stop for rest with hot tea, coffee, snacks and, if the weather conditions are appropriate, we will enjoy the view of the Aegean Sea and the characteristic conical point of Dirfy.
Then we will start our journey down to Steni where we will stay for lunch in the picturesque taverns of the area.
