Hike 2
From the Port of Hydra to Mount Eros via the Monastery of Prophet Elias and the Convent of Saint Evpraxia
Total time: 2 ½ hours
This is quite a rigorous hike due to its steady ascent, so it is best to start out in the early hours of the morning. However, the road is easy to make out and the views are compelling, especially from Eros, the highest mountain of Hydra. You also get to see two interesting monasteries.
