The mountains, gorges and rugged coastline of Greece’s largest island
Guided Walking Holidays - Wild Crete
Discover the wild high ranges that dominate the spine of Crete, its canyons and idyllic coastal routes between villages, some only accessible on foot or by sea. Wild Crete offers great hiking, sometimes strenuous, but rewarding, exploring deep gorges, imposing summits, following much of the E4 path.
From Paleohóra we take the coastal route to Sougia, and walk on the imposing Gingelos (2080m) en route to Omalos, a village situated inland on the mountain plain.
From Omalos, we’ll head into the Samaria Gorge National Park for the 11 mile, 1300m descent through diverse and spectacular scenery. We recover at the village of Agia Roumeli on the coast, before moving on, via a coastal route, to the tranquil fishing village of Loutro. From Loutro, we walk through the Aradhena Gorge with the opportunity for a rewarding swim to end the day. We continue along the coast to Hora Sfakion en route to Chania for our final night.
