Climb the highest peak of Crete and enjoy the 360 degree view of the largest Greek island from an altitude of 2456m.

Starting early in the morning, we shall be transferred to the base of the highest mountain of Crete.

Following a well-maintained path, we will reach the very top (2456m) in approximately three – three and a half hours. From the highest summit, we can enjoy a full view of Crete. We can stare at both Kritiko Pelagos to the north and Liviko Pelagos to the south, all the islands that surround Crete, and of course all the mountain ranges of the island.

The return will be done by the same path back.
