In the past two years, the possibility of certifying some of the walking routes, especially on the north of Chios, has been widely discussed. Making a bold first step in this direction, the municipality of Chios has organized a two-day course in Volissos, delivered by the European Ramblers Association, thus initializing a process that will hopefully lead to the Leading Quality Trails certification. During the course, we were trained (both in theory and in practice) on the procedures that are required in order to prepare an application for certification.
