With such varied terrain, Greece’s largest island is a wonderland for walkers. Explore the wild regions of Sfakia and Selino, where you’ll have at least 30 gorge walks right on your doorstep. Hike through ancient olive groves and cypress forest in the foothills of the White Mountains. As you go, you’ll come across remote monasteries and hidden Byzantine chapels before stopping at a family run taverna for lunch. Picturesque coastal paths lead you past ancient ruins to some of the Mediterranean’s most idyllic coves and warm, crystal clear waters.
Top Hike: It may be obvious, but Samaria Gorge is famous for a reason. This jaw-dropping 10-mile hike from the Omalos plateau to the beach at Agia Roumeli is best attempted in spring or autumn.
Where To Stay: Depending on how active you want to be, we can arrange self-guided hotel to hotel walks or hikes accompanied by expert guides. If you prefer a single base to do day walking from, we can arrange that too.
