A walk from Anemotia on Lesbos out in the Island's hills and valleys.
This pleasant circular walk out of Anemotia goes on tracks and paths and through pine woods and olive groves.The following 13 km circular walk could be rated as fairly strenuous particularly in hotter weather since it involves a long climb to start with and then an equally tiring very steep descent plus another sharp although not too long steep ascent at the end just for luck. Also note there are no tavernas or cafes available on this walk so you will need to be self-sufficient in drink and snacks i.e. take plenty of water with you.
Parking is possible on the track which goes to Skala Kallonis by the olive oil factory just on the outskirts of Anemotia - there is a parking area but it can sometimes get rather filled up by pick-up trucks. In this case simply continue on just through the factory area and there is usually plenty of room under some trees for parking on the other side. Walk back through the factory towards the town and turn left by the church and bell tower, continue up the initially cobbled street which soon bears sharply right then left as it heads towards the cemetery which is hidden in trees. Continue past the cemetery (on your left) and stay on the track - ignore a track on the right but just keep going ever upwards into the hills - with really good views of the valley below.
