Chania Prefecture

Trip Planner Europe  /  Greece  /  Crete  /  Chania Prefecture
(4.1/5 based on 30,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: beaches, sightseeing, nature
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. To arrange what you want to do in Chania Prefecture, use our Greece trip itinerary planner.
