About me

Welcome to my website!
My name is Ia Löfquist, I’m from the south of Sweden and I speak Swedish and English.

Life is a journey and it brought me to Ierapetra, Crete. The first time was in the late 80’s and I knew immediately that this is “my place on earth”, here I feel at home. As often as I had the opportunity I came to visit and in later years for longer periods. For some time now, Ierapetra is my base, but I visit family and friends in Skåne now and then. I work mainly on the internet, but I also lead hikes.

Spending time in nature has always been important to me but in different ways. A number of years ago I started hiking and has not stopped yet. I am convinced that it is important to occasionally step away from everyday life, unleash the thoughts and just enjoy everything beautiful here and now. Hiking means relaxation and disconnection providing peace, strength and energy. Plus, you get fresh air and exercise.

To hike in Crete’s wonderful landscape is a favour. It’s so tranquil and varied with marvellous views so who can resist?

Let’s go hiking!
