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

 

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 with bus or taxi.

”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 organise other activities, tours and theme weeks.

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

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 bring us back to Ierapetra. (approx 5 hours plus time for visit at the monastery)

Day 6 – The taxi takes us up to the mountain village where we start and walk to the next village. We continue along the trail, among pine trees and greenery, on the hillside. When we reach the village on the north coast, we take a taxi to Ierapetra where we have lunch. (approx 4 hours)
Dinner together in the evening (optional).

Day 7 – Day of departure.
