Re: White Mountains / Pachnes

The only information I have is what I see on cretanbeaches.com - basically I understand the hike is not too difficult, but my issue is on how to get to the starting point of the walk. If I stay at the hotel in Anopolis is the ride to the starting point free? If not, what does it typically cost? I ma...

White Mountains / Pachnes

I want to hike to the top of the summit this summer. Can someone explain to me the logistics? I have found a few websites with some information. I only want to make it a day trip, nothing overnight. Does that require someone drive me to the summit? What is the weather in late August?

Re: Loutre to Agia Roumeli

The pictures are too beautiful to not try, I will either start early morning or go with someone who has gone before hopefully. Everyone on this website is so helpful, thank you so much for the route map (saving it now) and all the other information.

Re: Loutre to Agia Roumeli

I did Aradena gorge down and back in one morning, jogged through Imbros gorge in 2 hours, and walked Samaria from Agia Roumeli. I'm not so concerned with the physical part (I played a pro sport not long ago), as I am with getting lost - also I have a slight fear of heights haha. In Aradena I had dif...

Re: Loutre to Agia Roumeli

From reading this thread I have decided I want to do the walk from Agios Ioannis down to Agios Pavlos, then Agia Roumeli, and ferry back to Hora Sfakion. I see Google Maps has this path mapped, but is it difficult to know where to go, or is it clear? I am also interested in doing Aradena gorge again...

Re: Skaloti Gorge

Thank you for all the information, it is very useful. I will probably need help with starting my walk out of Kallikrati because it's not very clear to me which way I would go. I would like to do the walk to Manikas and back to Kallikrati. Are the vultures dangerous?

Skaloti Gorge

Has anyone walked the Skaloti gorge? I downloaded the KML but am unsure of where it starts, or how to get there. It looks like I could go from Kallikratis. As with any gorge, I always have trouble planning how I would get back to my starting point to get my car.
