Hikes – three arrangements

I have obtained an excellent range of personal and unique hikes. By walking with a hiking leader you can relax, do not have to worry about getting lost and will experience hidden little gems. We walk together with space for everyone.

I speak Swedish and English, see also About me.

I offer three arrangements:

  • occasional hike
  • hiking week
  • ”tailor-made” according to preferences

 

Occasional hike

herde hundar berg kreta vandraIf you wish to hike a day or two, please contact me by using the form Inquiry. If you are already in the area you can also check for information flyers at your hotel. We will discuss your preferences and agree on how many hikes, date, and price.

The hikes begin and end in Ierapetra, in southeastern Crete. Usually, a hike begins and/or ends by bus or taxi.

 

Hiking Week

The hikes begin and end in Ierapetra, in southeastern Crete, so you stay at the same hotel. Sometimes a hike begins and/or ends by bus or taxi.

Hiking Weeks
Hiking Season: early September – mid-June.
Contact me for dates during 2017 and 2018!

Hiking Week programme
(approximated time: comfortable pace and with breaks)

Day 1 – Day of arrival.

Day 2 – Taxi to a mountain village where we walk up to a chapel and a magnificent view, followed by a walk over the mountains to another village where we have lunch and a taxi will take us back to Ierapetra. This hike gives us the opportunity to get to know each other and get used to the landscape and the climate. (approx 4 hours)
Dinner together in the evening (optional).

Day 3 – Today we are going to cross Crete! We leave Ierapetra in the morning, walking through olive groves to the first village. Small mountain roads and village streets will take us through three villages, with a coffee break in one village, up north to Pachia Ammos at Mirabello Bay where we have a bite to eat at a tavern down by the seaside. Return to Ierapetra by bus or taxi. (approx 5 hours)
Dinner together in a mountain village in the evening (optional)

Day 4 – No scheduled activities. Please feel free to ask if you want suggestions or ideas for things to do and see!

Day 5 – Taxi to the starting point where we take the same route as pilgrims up to the monastery. We visit the monastery if it is open. After that, we walk, as the monks did, over the mountains to the next monastery. Then it’s down to the village where we have lunch. Many nice views remain on the retina! Taxi brings us back to Ierapetra. (approx 5 hours plus time to visit the monastery)

Day 6 – The taxi takes us up to a mountain village where we start our hike over the mountains. We pass small fields, walk among pine trees and greenery while we are enjoying beautiful views. In the kafenion in a small village, we have a light lunch. When our legs have had some rest, we take another path through pine forest and over the mountains to return to the starting point. From here we travel to Ierapetra. (approx 5 hours plus lunch break)
Dinner together in the evening (optional).

Day 7 – Day of departure.

The programme may be altered due to weather conditions or other unforeseeable events.

”Tailor-made” according to preferences

If a group, a community or a workplace want a different number of days of walking than a hiking week, mixing with other activities or to have hikes as an element in another programme or a conference then we ”tailor” a program according to preferences. It is possible throughout the hiking season (early September – mid-June).

I have several hikes to choose from. The hikes begin and end in Ierapetra, in southeastern Crete. Usually, a hike begins and/or ends with bus or taxi.

I can help organize other activities, tours and theme weeks.

Please contact me by using the form Inquiry. We will discuss your preferences and agree to an arrangement, date, and price.
