Re: Looking for recommendations for a 2 day hike around Chora Sfakion & White Mountains in September

I've just seen Erno's post on the main forum saying that accommodation in Sfakia is becoming fully booked this mornth and next. If you can't find a room in Sfakia itself, as you have a hire car you could try Anopolis - O Platanos taverna in the main square or the Anopolis Taverna and Rooms just 100m...

Re: Looking for recommendations for a 2 day hike around Chora Sfakion & White Mountains in September

One day hike you might consider is from the north end of Askifou plateau, across the plateau and down the Imbros Gorge. From the bottom of that gorge you can walk, hitch a lift of (maybe) catch a bus to Chora Sfakion (which, by the way, is called Sfakia locally). It isn't a difficult walk but it's p...

Re: Samaria Gorge ticket office (Xyloskala)

Thanks.

Did you notice whether or not the Gorge ticket office has moved? The building itself has been there for a few years but usually closed/deserted.

Samaria Gorge ticket office (Xyloskala)

Posted on behalf of a friend - I haven't been on the Omalos this year so can't give her a definitive answer. Our friend has been told that the ticket office for the Gorge has been moved to the Natural History museum/exhibition whose entrance is a little way back down the road from Xyloskala towards ...

Re: Agia Irini and vertigo

I'm not a vertigo sufferer so it's difficult to know what triggers the 'panic' response, but the Agia Irini descent is one of the more popular walks and I've seen it done by people who, to put it politely, appear from their choice of footwear not to be regular walkers! On the assumption that you'll ...

Re: Walk Imbros-Kali Lakkoi-Skarfidakia-Mouri-Anopoli

Just back from Sfakia and further west. We did the walk, but for a number of reasons completed it in two stretches. Day one, with full packs, from Niato to Trikoukia and on to Kali Lakki without problems. The path up the gully wasn't, as Jean found, immediately obvious and quite overgrown in places ...

Re: Walk Imbros-Kali Lakkoi-Skarfidakia-Mouri-Anopoli

And thank you again from us too.

We're really looking forward to the walk and as long as we make reasonable progress on the early sections, with the help of your map we'll certainly try the Thesparta kalderimi/path down to Anopolis.

Very best wishes

Re: Walk Imbros-Kali Lakkoi-Skarfidakia-Mouri-Anopoli

Thank you also from us. Your description and photos are very timely as we intend to do this walk in about 10 days time, starting from Askifou (with a 'cheating' truck transfer to Trikoukia). I've tracked your photos on the map and noted your times - not sure we'll be matching them as we'll have full...
