Dirfi is a majestic mountain hosting rich biodiversity and mysterious fog clouds in the center of Evia island. Also this perios transforms into a paradise for mushroom hunting!

Our journey will start just outside the picturesque village of Steni through a dense forest(part of Natura) rich in chestnuts, firs, oaks, plane trees, ferns but also small mammals, various birds and amphibians.

The uphill trek starts next to an idyllic river, crosses the best part of the fir forest and ends at the local refuge. There you can breathe the fresh cool air from the Aegean sea and admire the cone of Dirfi and the surrounding peaks.

After a short rest we start our descent from a different terrain, traversing a rocky garden for a short while, overlooking the village and south towards other alpine peaks. Finally, we cross the pine forest with the smell of resin gushing around us!

During the trek, we make many breaks for refreshments and try to introduce you to local customs and culture.

In Steni we can enjoy a walk in the small alleyways & find hand-collected herbs!

The whole hiking route (~10km,+700m) has a moderate difficulty with small challenging but enjoyable parts.

On the way back we can stop at a mushroom station and learn more about the fungi kingdom!

*See tips for transport
**Evia is in the yellow (low risk) zone for covid, shops & restaurants are still open!
Other things to note
*The transport from Athens to Chalkida should be covered by yourself. Train & buses (accessible by metro) run from Athens almost every hour to Chalkida ~1.15h ~7€ ticket price
**After booking I send specific directions to individuals to meet together in Athens and arrive as a whole team

Mount Dirfi is situated in the middle of Evia and with a height of 1743 m. is the island’s highest peak.

The proximity to Athens and the unrivaled beauty of the aesthetic forest making the mountain a favorite destination for hikers.Being between Aegean Sea & Evia's gulf offers great 360o views with weather conditions normally found on much higher mountains.

Seen from afar it resembles a volcano which is why many people call it "Greek Fuji"

Without a doubt best and most memorable Airbnb experience I’ve ever done. Such a beautiful location and Fotis is an excellent guide and clearly an expert on the areas natural diversity. I also had to catch a flight the same day after and Fotis was very accommodating to this by starting a bit earlier so there was no rush! 100% recommend this to anyone wanting a beautiful and unique Greek experience to remember for a lifetime!

Fotis was a great and knowledgeable host. He was very accommodating with picking us up from Athens since he was in town. We did a lot mushroom hunting, per my request, and ended up with a lot! he has a really great eye for finding mushrooms and identifying them. The location was really lovely and we didn't run into a lot of other people. Overall a really lovely experience and fun hike.

Fotis organized the walk very well and have planned everything from A to Z, so there was nothing to worry about. Seen some great places, learned unusually a lot about mushrooms, was enjoying a good mood the whole time. Fotis also gave some good tips for future hikes and travels. I couldn't ask anything more, 10/10

This location is one of the best in all of the areas in Greece I visited, including islands. Fotis is a great organizer and got us coordinated and to the spot with no hitches. He is a real outdoor enthusiast and shares that passion with you. Makes it fun.

Hike with florid was great. He was a very experienced hiker and very knowledgeable about the mountain and mushrooms. First time hiking and flotis made it very comfortable for me and my friend who was catching a heart attack lol. 100% recommend this trip with flotis. Also the town and island is beautiful!
