Crete Coast to Coast

Discover a diversity of unspoilt landscapes as you walk from the north to the south coast on the Greek island of Crete. Explore secluded and pristine beaches, the Lefka Ori or White Mountains, the fertile and green Apokonoras plain and the impressive Sfakia and Aradhena gorges, world-renowned phenomenons whose incredible landscapes were formed many centuries ago due to seismic activity. 

During the walks you will feel truly immersed in traditional areas of Crete that few tourists get to see. Walking through olive groves and row upon row of cypress trees you will be enamoured by the white-washed and cobblestoned villages, Greek Orthodox monasteries and churches and surrounding peaks that will be snow-capped during the spring. Also enjoy delicious Greek food in the local tavernas.
