Our mediterranean island walking holiday on Crete mixes a special blend of the Island's high mountain scenery, picturesque coastal walking, traditional villages and legendary Greek food and hospitality. From the mountain hamlet of Omalos, our first objective is walking to the summit of Gingilos (1980m), a rocky peak which provides spectacular views across the White Mountains and a bird's eye perspective of our next day's route, which takes us down to the Mediterranean via the famous Samaria Gorge. We then spend 2 nights at Agia Roumeli, a pretty collection of tavernas accessible only by walking or by boat, with the option of a rest day on the beach or a variety of day trekking excursions. Following sun-kissed shoreline and cliff-side pathway, our next day's walking in Crete takes us to Marmara beach and the charming, white painted seaside hamlet of Finix. From a hotel base here, the trekking leads us up to Pachnes (2453m), the highest peak in the 'Lefka Ori' and then completes the circular hike via the impressive Aradena Gorge and the pretty village of Anopolis. Fall under the spell of the White Mountains on this walking holiday on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Crete!
