Crete: hiking and culture in the southwest
We start the trip at the charming city of Chania with ist Venetian port. Our first hike lets us explore the monasteries of the Akrotiri peninsula. Then we walk down the famous Samaria gorge to Agia Roumeli where we stay overnight. Next day we walk along the coast to Loutro, a village where there is still no road. We stay there for three nights climbing the wild slopes of the Lefka Ori before returning to Chania via ferry and bus.
