South Crete Hiking

 Available every Friday & Sunday in German/Czech (May-October)
 Duration 5 hours approximately (from first pick up to last drop off)

Our hiking experience starts in the picturesque village of Agios Ioannis in Thripti (500m above sea level). From there you hike to the church of Profitis Ilias, the highest point on this hike.
When descending on the way to Kato Chorio you can enjoy the fantastic view as it is a unique spot to view both coasts of Crete (North and South).
After walking at the local streets of Kato Chorio in the village you will stop at a typical “Kafenion”, where you will have the opportunity to try a Greek coffee and some of the traditional “Mezedes” – small delicacies.
