Rich in natural splendour, and in countless reminders of its ancient and turbulent past, the Greek island of Crete affords an inexhaustible source of vivid impressions for your walking holiday.

As you hike through this largest of all Greek islands, there are orange and olive groves, forests of cypress, pine and evergreen oak. Discover a profusion of wildflowers, some of them found only in Crete, for the island is host to more plant species than are found in the whole of the British Isles. This wealth of flowers and herbs sustains a large insect and butterfly population, which, in part, explains the popularity of Crete with migrant birds. Some 250 different species of migrant birds have been identified in Crete.

Cretan life reflects its natural surroundings. In the foothill villages, where life is simple and very close to nature, you will meet a proud people, devoted to their customs and traditions, and genuinely generous in their hospitality.

Choose from some of the best walking holidays in Crete as we take you to the island's highlights & hidden places such as Samaria Gorge, the White Mountains and the little Pavlos church. Get a feel of the old Crete of 40 years ago and stay in handpicked accommodation enjoy Cretan specialties.
