Walking in the South of Crete

Hikers welcome

Walking in the surroundings of Mirtos in South Crete, this means to enjoy nature, silence and great outdoors. “Surprising!” … “What a silence!”… “What an unexpected variety!” These are only some of the comments from our guests after walking in our region.
There is a rich variety of plants, herbs and birds, even birds of prey.
The views to the mountains and the sea or the visit of a picturesque mountain village will stay in your memory.
The impressive Sarakina gorge in the hills behind Mirtos is worth an adventure.
