Crete is famous for the longest gorge in Europe, the Samaria gorge, but it has many lesser known, and just as beautiful, (and not as long) ravines to explore. Join us for a week of the best gorge walks that Western Crete has to offer with stunning scenery along the way and a chance to discover the lesser known Western tip of the island.
This far west side of the island also provides the opportunity to discover a very authentic side of Crete life and its traditional culture.
Our base is the provincial seaside town of Kissamos, predominantly an agricultural working town, which offers a glimpse of local life mixed with a touch of tourism. It is situated in the middle of a beautiful bay that sits between the 'fingers' of two peninsulas, Gramvousa and Rodopos, on the north coast.
Walking boots are essential for this tour as the terrain can be quite rough underfoot. Walking poles are also advised. The walks are organised by Stelios and Angela Milonakis, a local Greek/English couple, who began their walking company in 1999 and have been leading our very popular Walking in Western Crete tour for the last 8 years.
