Cretan Trails And Tavernas

From: £1195.00

Guided Walking Holidays - Cretan Trails and Tavernas Cretes White Mountains beckon you into the islands wild interior. The distant peaks are often covered in snow well into late spring, and the summer sun reflects on the limestone summits making them appear white. The mountains are cut by over 50 gorges, with the Samaria Gorge the most famous and well traversed. The western part of the island is a walkers paradise. It has the unique combination of beautiful seas and high mountains and many trails criss-crossing the region. Experience this journey with Ramblers Walking Holidays.The islands geographical diversity and wild beauty can be seen in the endemic flora and fauna, spectacular vistas and idyllic picnic spots, which add to the dramatic walking on offer. Mule tracks lead you to breathtaking cols, past remote villages and weathered archaeological remains. Coastal tracks follow rugged cliffs, around small bays. A quiet taverna offers a welcome rest from the afternoon sun. Our hotel is well located in the charming Venetian harbour town of Chania from which we enjoy a week walking in Cretes western corner. The towns narrow streets and quiet squares, colourful buildings adorned with bougainvillea and bustling cafs along the waterfront, add to its lively character. It is a lovely place to while away a warm Mediterranean evening and enjoy some taverna life. There are many interesting shops, markets and also many intriguing museums dotted around town. The old sea fortress of Frikas now houses the Naval Museum and the old Venetian lighthouse dominates the port. The excellent walking combined with the local cuisine, wines and Greek hospitality create a perfect mix. Chania is much more tranquil over the Christmas period and is a perfect place to escape the hectic holiday season at home. Some restaurants and shops may be closed and museums and archaeological sites may have reduced opening hours.
