Sfakia report, Oct 18th – Kalikratis, Asfendou gorge

As Spinx mentioned in their report on the Hiking forum, Friday was cloudy and warm, and there was a little drizzle in the morning.

Sfakia report, October 17 – Livaniana, Aradena gorge, Marmara

Here is a great photo of the Lefka Ori in sunlight against a dark sky, taken by Marcel Pouplier, who rode up to Roussies (the start of the path to Pachnes) on his e-bike today.

Re: Sfakia report, Oct 10

And it is still very warm here - it was cloudy, warm and humid in the morning, clearing somewhat and hot in the afternoon, but even now at 11pm it is still 21C. The crickets are chirping and there is a light breeze. They took the sunbeds off Vrisi beach today, in spite of the warm weather and the nu...

passenger ferries

We were told that there will be some changes with the passenger ferries on/after Sunday. The Neptune will stop for the season, and the Agia Roumeli will take over. The ferries (except the Delfini) will all depart from the new harbour for the rest of the season.
