A very informative guide with detailed descriptions of the most important and beautiful hikes, walks and rambles in Western Crete (with trails covering the regions of Chania and Rethymnon). The routes, catering for a variety of standards, are meticulously described and include all the information you will need (difficulty,
duration, accommodation, access etc).
The authors, raised in Crete, have put their long experience of hiking on paper, along with interesting facts about the natural surroundings, the villages, and the sites of Western Crete, as well as the customs of the local people and their way of life. They draw your attention to "off-the-beaten-track" places and to many
of the hidden treasures of this island.
The book includes a sketch-map of each route, as well as 16 pages with colour photographs of Crete's majestic landscapes.
