Description: Hiking across the centre of the island, along the traditional old footpath from Melegakia in the north to the church of Agios Konstantinos, over the “aloni” (threshing floor) and past the “laka” (small wheat fields), you will get a glimpse of life as it used to be. We finish at the lovely white pebble beach of Lefto Gialos.
