The trail of the great Greek philosopher begins from the EU-recognized Natura 2000 network at Aristotle’s Grove and the Ottoman-era mines and concludes at ancient Stageira in Olympiada, the philosopher’s birthplace.
The distance of the trail is 22 kilometers and follows the shady paths of the Aristotelian Mountain and overlooks the sea, the Akanthian and Strymonic Gulfs.
According to the Mount Athos Area Organization, “Aristotle’s Walk” will be promoted to international markets beginning from the World Travel Market in London this November.
In 2014, the next seven trails in the Chalkidiki peninsula will be presented. The second route to be introduced will be “Xerxes Walk.”
