Wandelgids Western Crete - Kreta west | Sunflower books (9781856914901)

Beschrijving

Wandelgids voor het westen van Kreta: vele dagtochten worden degelijk beschreven met openbaar vervoer informatie, goede routebeschrijvingen en kaartmateriaal. Tevens enkele autotochten. Deze gids staat goed bekend! Engelstalig, want Nederlandstalige is uitverkocht en niet meer leverbaar.

Crete is a large island so we've divided it into two halves. Only the western half of the island is covered in this book. Mountains rearing straight up from the sea, deep wooded gorges, ravines and valleys ­ and yet more glorious mountains, standing proud and acting as a magnet to the eye and the imagination ­ that's western Crete, or real Crete, as some would say. Its strong, dramatic scenery and colours create sweeping landscapes of harsh but beautiful countryside ­ countryside that has been the backdrop for heroic deeds, ancient civilisations and constant intrigue for thousands of years, and the home of obdurate, tough people ­ made so by their labours on the land and their experiences.

Western Crete is real hikers' territory, and this book takes in all the best routes. Of course you will want to 'do' Samaria, but there are many, less frequented gorges to be explored. There are challenging hikes in both the White and Ida Mountains and long, long stretches along the southern coast ­ where you can swim in crystal-clear water and perhaps stay overnight in idyllic villages like Loutro ­ only accessible on foot or by boat.

Best months for hiking: April to June, September or October

Where to Stay. The authors used Hania as their base for walking and this gives good access to a wide range of the walks in the book. Otherwise Rethimnon could be a suitable base as it, too, has good transport links.
