Crete guided trekking holiday

Crete - Greek guided walking holiday

April 2020 dates to be confirmed Two one week guided walking holidays covering the West and then the East of Crete the southernmost island in Greece

I am getting together a new walk in Crete which looks like it will spread over two weeks. Why? It's because the island is full of great views, stories and areas to explore so I'm looking at two one week guided walking holidays, one week in the East and one week in the West.

Watch out for more announcements on this. Meanwhile check out what could be part of either of these weeks.

I'm always looking for uniqueness in the places I go walking. Crete has this in abundance. With such a big island and so much to offer I will get together a two centred two week guided walking holiday that really does get under the skin of the special Cretan culture. The food, the scenery and the people are truly heroic in so many ways.

The landscape is dominated by mountains, gorges, beaches and meadows.  Add another layer of Minoan archaeology with a diversity of architecture that represents the multicultural historic influence of the East, West, North and South you realise that Crete has been a cultural gateway for thousands of years. Crete has been the heartbeat and soul of the the Mediterranean.

In April when we go the flora and fauna will be at its best. The colours, the aromas to match the clarity of the sea and the splendour of the sunsets, we have a variety of species of flowers from the mountains via the plains and meadows down to the sea. A geological and botanical heaven.

However inevitably, it is the vastness of the terrain, where humans are squeezed, often accommodated on long, winding and mesmerising narrow tracks between the mountains and the sea. There are also wide meadows that we explore and villages through which we pass. The paths that have a close proximity to that area between rock and sea require your attention and the rewards are numerous in the vistas and the experience of journeys that have taken place over thousands of years. You will be breathless for many a reason and I can guarantee a walking holiday unparalleled in the walkitcornwall "stable" of walks.
