Open yer eyes, oh, ye lucky wanderer,
for near to here is a place
where heaven and earth kiss and caress.
(Håkan Nesser in “Levande och döda i Winsford”)
In southeastern Crete, we walk in the beautiful lush mountains with amazing views of land and sea. Olive groves, chapels and villages pop up and make the landscape varied. Calm and quiet in a silence where everything you hear is the wind and the goats’ bells. We enjoy here and now. Both body and soul get rest and recovery, new energy and power.
With a hiking leader, you can relax, not worry about getting lost and experience hidden gems. After some years of hiking, I have collected a good range of personal and unique walks.
The walks are based in Ierapetra in southeastern Crete. Here the pace is calm and everyday life is rolling. The area is rich in excursions such as charming villages, beaches, historic sights. And of course, we will enjoy the excellent good food and the famous Cretan hospitality!
The hiking season extends from early September to the end of June. I offer:
and year-round a city walk in Ierapetra.
Welcome to Crete!
