  • In transit we through the White Mountains. Those images still remain. Hairpin bends, old tunnels, depth and height and above all beautiful colours. Occasionally a small village with a taverna. Often you just want to stop and stand watching on as many beautiful nature. Do your best to a safe spot, however, because the locals drive sometimes hard.

  • A huge mountain paradise! Many routes on trails or in free field. Attention with the water during the summer months

  • Directions as to the Samaria Gorge. In front of the entrance to the Gorge, the right trail leads to Gingilos 1980m h. The trail is well marked and nietrudny, occupies a total of ok. 5-6 hours. Initially climbs there quite steeply but appear better views. Initially, on the plain of Omalos and later to the Samaria Gorge. We pass along the way very old gnarled Cypress mountain ridges, big rock arch and interesting rock towers. There is one water source and then climbing the loose stones to pass. We pass a little Nora rock, where you can escape and relax. From the pass is still near an hour more a steep trail. In several places, a little bit you need to help yourself when entering hands. We are looking for yellow paint marks on the stones or follow up guiding your own safe. We pass through interesting rock rubbles and we achieve peak and actually two. Because they are two vertices of a small difference in altitude. Overlooking the beautiful panorama: to the North of the Aegean Sea and Chania, South of the Libyan Sea and Paleohora. Below us Samaria Gorge followed by the towering peaks of the White Mountains, with a haughty Pachnes. You can relax among clusters of scented flowers and come back the same way to the entry point.
