Re: Query about present condition of road to Omalos

Hi Claire,
the road is open since we drove it 10 days ago.
Expect a narrow section in Lakki where one lane of the road broke down, although this might be fixed already (works were in progress when we passed).
Best regards

Re: Livaniana update

This is an announcement from Eike John which is posted on her behalf: She has closed business with immediate action because the safety in and around the taverna cannot be guaranteed anymore. In the last days more and more rocks keep coming down and there will be no solution in the near future. She l...

Re: Question

Hi,
this is the Drakoulakis cave right above the Aradena gorge.
You could reach it easily from Kroussia.
But beware: Do not enter without proper equipment or alone!
A speleological survey map can be found inside the taverna Anopoli.
Best regards

Re: Hiking Guide or Hiking Group

In September I will travel alone to Crete and most of the time I am planning to be in Chora Sfakion. Hiking I like and I would do the Aradena Gorge, but not alone. Somebody knows an Hiking Guide or Group which I could follow? Perhaps from Chora Sfakion or nearby? Hi Sabine, you may want to contact ...

Re: White Mountains / Pachnes

Maybe it's obvious but... The price (50 - 65 € depending on negotiations) is per taxi trip! If you want to return by car half a day later you will have to pay twice. Normally they don't wait at the end of the road for the hikers to return from Pachnes. Best chance is to join a group (for driving up/...

Re: R.I.P.

Hi Mike, nice thread of you... :lol: my previous Meindl boots survived only 2 years in Crete and during this time they had to be repaired in factory 3 times. :oops: Now I'm happy with my second pair of Hanwag Yukon Wide which is the best boot I've ever had the chance to try.

Re: Glass fibre broadband internet in Sfakia!

3G is quite good because of the two mobile transmission towers nearby (1.5 km to Anopoli center). I'm using a Cosmote Surfstick as fallback during DSL outage and have higher speeds this way Do you happen to know if there is also Vodafone 3G in Anopoli or is it just Cosmote? I'm thinking of buying a...

I'm using a Cosmote Surfstick as fallback during DSL outage and have higher speeds this way - although more expensive. ;)

Re: Glass fibre broadband internet in Sfakia!

Question: how slow is internet at the moment in Sfakia/Anopolis? Is it usable at all, does it depend on the time of the day and season how busy it is/how slow it gets? In a very remote place in Anopoli my DSL line connects at 4096/512 and it is quite stable although it tends to become worse in bad ...
