Sunday 22 September - Circular walk from Katigiorgis

Our first walk for the autumn of 2019, this is an 8.2 km walk (about 2hrs 30 mins) starting and ending at Katigiorgis.

We will meet at 10am on Sunday 22 September on the beach at Katigiorgis.  We will walk along the narrow track to Vromoneri and from there up the steep road to the Katigiorgis - Kastri road.  We will then walk along the road for a short distance (about five minutes - please watch out for traffic) before turning right and immediately right again onto the mud road which leads from the junction with the Martini track down towards Theotokos.  We leave the mud road after about 3km and turn right downhill through olive groves towards Katigiorgis. (The route here is more difficult to follow but is marked with both yellow Kalderimi signs and red paint).  

The walk will finish at around 12.30.

Following the walk we will eat at Stamouli’s taverna (taverna Areti), as usual we need to know numbers of people intending to join us for lunch.

Please confirm before 19:00 on Friday if you will be eating.  Please click here to confirm by email that you are eating and the number of people in your group and you will receive confirmation from us that we have received your reservation for lunch.

PLEASE NOTE: The taverna will not be able to cater for additional diners on the day. If you have not confirmed by 19:00 on Friday that you will be joining us, you will need to make your own arrangements for food elsewhere.  Please do not arrive on Sunday and ask us to include you for food if you have not confirmed you are coming, we will not be able to include you.

We look forward to seeing you there.
