INDIVIDUAL HIKING TOUR IN
SFAKIA, SOUTH WEST CRETE
This is an individual hiking tour with detailed descriptions and maps of the walks. Hotel reservations are included. There are two different options:
. The start and end of this 8-day walking tour is the village of Chora Sfakion, 75 km from the airport of Chania. Apart from coastal walks and gorges, there is the opportunity to climb Mount Pachnes, the highest peak in the White Mountains.
. The starting point is also Chora Sfakion, but now you keep following the South Coast to the village of Paleochora. In this tour the emphasis is even more on gorges: apart from the Imbros and Aradena Gorge, you also walk through the Samaria and Irini Gorge.
You will walk with your daypack. The rest of your luggage will be transported by boat, taken care of by the owners of the hotels.
In early spring and when weather conditions are bad, there may be no boat connections. If this is the case, you will have to carry the luggage yourself.
You will get a pack of very clearly written, accurate walking instructions and detailed walking maps for every walk separately and a detailed map of the total walking area.
In this way you can thoroughly enjoy your walks without spending time looking endlessly for the right path! Another advantage is that all your lodging has been reserved for you and that your luggage will be taken care of by someone from the hotel.
Your Cretan journey starts at the airport of Chania. Here a taxi will be waiting for you to bring you to Chora Sfakion, where your first hotel is situated.
The walks will lead you through the south-western part of Crete, well-known for its striking, beautiful and authentic countryside.
The first walk is quite easy and not very long, so you have time to get used to the climate and the local atmosphere.
During this walking tour you will stay overnight in three different coastal villages and once in a mountain village. You are booked for bed and breakfast in comfortable C-class hotels and rent rooms, with a welcoming atmosphere.
You will have your evening meals in local tavernas; there are several in every village. Let yourself in for a nice surprise or ask for advice at the hotel owners.
You will get a complete set of precisely and accurately described walks, some days with the possibility of choosing a longer or a shorter walk. This set of written walks will remain the property of THE HAPPY WALKER
and we would appreciate you returning it at the end of your walking tour with your recommendations and/or remarks.
It is always possible to extend your holidays, either before, during or after the walk.
