Two island associations, the Anavasi Greek Cycling and Hiking Association of Aegina and the Association of Active Citizens of Aegina, have cleared and marked 10 paths so you can get to know the rich history of the island, its natural beauty, its culture, and its folk tradition. These paths were recently included in the Paths of Culture project of the Elliniki Etairia Society for the Environment and Cultural Heritage. Nine of the ten paths have been numbered. They have a total length of about 45 kilometers and range from easy to moderate. Path two (2) starts at the northern limits of the settlement of Sfentouri and heads straight north to the Ancient Olive Grove (Archaios Elaionas, 3 kilometers, approximately 75 minutes). On the way, we will pass the little churches of Saint Nicholas (Agios Nikolaos) and Saint (Agios) Dimitrios, and we will find the impressive ‘Achlada’ watering hole. From the watering hole, a 300 meter uphill detour to the south will take us to the famous 'Drakospita.'
