Chania Prefecture

Trip Planner Europe  /  Greece  /  Crete  /  Chania Prefecture
Covering Crete's western section, Chania prefecture features some of the island's least spoiled natural areas, as well as its only freshwater lake. Most tourists concentrate on the prefecture's namesake capital, overlooking the dramatic landscapes of the region's sprawling national park. Designated as one of UNESCO's biosphere reserves, the park contains a rugged gorge known for sheltering many endemic plant species and providing a much-needed refuge for the rare kri-kri goat. Test your best hiking shoes by exploring this nature lover's paradise on day trips from the town of Chania, or settle in one of the nearby villages and spend your vacation touring the island's less-frequented southwestern shore. Chania Prefecture is in Crete. Our Greece online attractions planner combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
