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 one is the longest and most difficult marked path, with a total length of 8,800 meters (5 hours). The route starts in Anitseo, climbs up to Vlachides, continues toward Sfentouri where it meets Path Two (2), and after the Achlada watering hole (souvala) ascends to the top of Mount Ellanio and the church of the Prophet Elias (Profitis Ilias, the toughest point), before descending to Taxiarches (Archangels) and returning to Anitseo.
