That’s a reason why E4 (European long distance path) has been chosen to end here.

With three large Mountain ranges, Lefka Ori, Psiloritis, Dikti dominating the Cretan landscape, countless trails that are going through impressive Gorges and ancient paths crossing folk Villages, make Crete a Hiking paradise. The ideal Mediterranean mild climate makes hiking and trekking enjoyable any time of the year, even in the winter!
