The Municipality of Aristotle of Halkidiki defines geographically the whole of Eastern Halkidiki. A destination naturally located between three green mountains and 300km of coastline is essentially determined by the existence of hundreds of routes, many of which are mapped and marked bike paths.

The difference of the walking and cycling routes of Eastern Halkidiki from other similar routes lies in the historical brands (identities) that accompany them:

  • routes to Mount Aristotle – which “carry” the natural and cultural aura of the years that inspired and formed Aristotle,
  • places that hosted the famous Greek Alexis Zorbas – the time when he lived in Paleochori and worked in the area as a miner,
  • roads and paths along the borders of Mount Athos – that “smell” Byzantium,
  • routes and paths like the one followed by the Persian King Xerxes, to cross the Athonite Peninsula,
  • paths that highlight the history of Ancient Akanthos and the historical area “Mavro Aloni” of Ierissos, an emblematic place of sacrifice of the locals in the name of freedom from the Ottoman yoke,
  • natural routes that promote the olive and fir as natural creations with special quality characteristics.More information
