Hiking – with the Booklet
Views, old mountain villages, Minoan settlements, a gorge and much more offers the direct surrounding of Mirtos. On eight marked walking paths with available description and map you can discover a unique part of Crete on your own.
Walk 1: Along the Kolektos Hill
It is an ideal walk to get to know the region.
Walk 2: Along the Coast into the Mountains
Walk 3: Valleys and Views
Walk 4: Where Time is Timeless
Enjoy the views to the valley of Mirtos while sitting there with a drink on the terrace.
Walk 5: Under the Plane Tree
Mithi is a very fertile and green village which has been beautifully renovated in the last years.
Enjoy a rest at the village square in the shade of the centuries old plane tree.
Walk 6: Climbing through the Canyon
There are two options: to drive with the car to the entrance of the gorge or to combine it with a part of walk 5.
Walk 7: In the Footsteps of the Minoans
It is of big interest because it brings us in contact with the oldest high civilization of Europe.
Walk 8: The Minoan Path
It is available in some local shops (Sunbudget, I love Mirtos, Soul’s Art) or in your accommodation.
Discover Mirtos… on Foot
In the hot summer months you should consider to make the tours early in the morning or late afternoon only .
Ensure that you always take enough water, food and a cell phone with you.
Sun protection is very important in summer!
If you are planning to do a tour alone, inform a travel partner or the owner of your accommodation about your whereabouts.
