Walking on Crete

Crete is like a country on its own and with its varied landscapes it is ideal for walking! There are many walking possibilities on Crete like the many gorges, high mountains and spectacular coastal areas. 

Walking in Crete is the best way to discover the Cretan landscapes, to meet the locals, smell the flowers and discover that nice little tavern! You can either walk individually with descriptions or join a guided walking tour. Individually you can walk at your own pace, using a walking guidebook or booking an individual walking holiday where the travel company provides you with walk descriptions. Guided (daily) walking tours can be booked locally by several specialised tourist offices or freelance walking guides. You can also book guided walking holidays through a travel company, usually offering 1 or 2 week hiking tours. 

On this website we have a summary of some known gorges on Crete and give you a description of the different mountain areas. A separate page we have for the famous E4 long distance hiking trail.
