Full description
Hike or walk in southeastern Crete with its beautiful mountains and breathtaking views of land and sea. Olive groves, chapels and villages turn up in the rich and varied landscape. Peace and quiet in a tranquillity where all you hear is the wind and the goat bells. Spend time in nature, take in greenery and views, enjoy the present. Both body and soul get rest and recovery, new energy and power. Let your thoughts wander over the mountains. Marked hiking trails are rare in Crete. After some years of hiking, an excellent range of personal and unique hikes have been collected. With a hiking leader, you can relax, do not have to worry about getting lost and will experience hidden gems. The hiking leader will give information about the area, culture and history that will enrich your hiking experience. The hikes begin in Ierapetra, in southeastern Crete, away from the main tourist areas. Here, the pace is calmer and everyday life goes on. The area is rich in sights with such charming villages, historical landmarks and nice beaches. Enjoy the wonderfully delicious food and the famous Cretan hospitality. The hikes follow mainly small dirt roads. The hiking season runs from early September to mid-June. Welcome to the magical island of Crete.

Beautiful vistas, good paths, knowledgeable companion.

Ia is organized, communicates well and really knows the countryside we hiked through. I loved hiking over a mountain pass. It was a unique Cretan experience.

Die Reiseführerin ist sehr nett , organisiert und kennt sich gut aus. Die Strecke zum Dorf führte aber über lange Asphalt Straße die für Naturliebhaber uninteressant erscheinen.
