Many of the hikes are circular, taking you through dramatic scenery of sweeping landscapes and harsh but beautiful countryside; walks in the Samaria Gorge and other gorges are included.
This guide also features 8 car tours, 2 touring maps covering the whole island, plans of Hania and Rethimnon and free downloadable GPS tracks.
When to go: The best months for trekking in Crete are April to June, September or October.
