Hiking Route: Polichrono – Turtles – Polichrono

Hiking route

This walk takes you up into the hills behind Polichrono to visit a pond in the woods, where turtles can be found (Mavrobara lake). The route there follows broad forest tracks, passing through a high valley, which is surrounded by sandstone cliffs and a pine forest. The return path, gives you many fine views of the sea and coast as it gradually descends, through the trees, back to Polichrono.

These pinewoods, which are covered with dense undergrowth, contain many large trees reaching up from the deep gorges towards the light. This provides a fine habitat for birds, small mammals and insects. As well as the turtles in the lake, there are tortoises and lizards which are often encountered. Depending on the season, the more open ground can be a mass of colour, with its flowers, shrubs and butterflies.
