Crete - 60 walks - Rother Walking Guide

The finest coastal and mountain walks


Crete is incredibly varied for walkers. Many areas of the island are still rugged and pristine. The island's terrain is dominated by three mighty mountain ranges, furrowed by deep gorges. Lofty mountains and a deep-blue sea are in close proximity - an ideal combination for any holiday.

The routes range from a pleasant walk across foothills through vineyards and sprawling groves of olive trees all the way up to the highest panoramic summits. There are even some demanding peaks, over 2000 metres, to climb. Breathtaking canyons can be traversed and isolated, dripstone caves are waiting to be explored. Everywhere you look, you'll find little villages, secluded monasteries and remote caves. Even the classic Cretan walks, like the Samaria Gorge and Dead's Gorge with its Minoan palace grounds, are included in this guide.

Rolf Goetz, a seasoned writer of walking guides for Bergverlag Rother, presents 60 walks on the island of Crete, all rich in diversity. Each individual walk includes a short preface with all the important key points, an exact description of the route, a height profile and a little walking map with the route marked. GPS tracks are available for downloading. Map scales are 1:50,000 and 1:75,000.
