Περιγραφή

Mountains rearing straight up from the sea, deep wooded gorges, ravines and valleys — and yet more glorious mountains, standing proud and acting as a magnet to the eye and the imagination — that’s western Crete, or real Crete, as some would say. Its strong, dramatic scenery and colours create sweeping landscapes of harsh but beautiful countryside — countryside that has been the backdrop for heroic deeds, ancient civilisations and constant intrigue for thousands of years, and the home of obdurate, tough people — made so by their labours on the land and their experiences. Western Crete is real hikers’ territory, and this book takes in all the best routes.

The best months for walking in Crete are April to June, September or October

Area covered: From the Gramvousa Peninsula east to the area around Rethimnon
