Advice on day trips
« Reply #15 on: August 14, 2004, 02:43:42 PM »
We have found the Sunflower Landscapes of Western Crete a good guide for walks further afield.  Last year we drove up to the top of Samaria Gorge and did a couple of walks into the mountains, one up to the Kallergi refuge, mostly on a gravel track and on another occasion half way up Mount Gingilos. We did not do this but it is probably best to stop overnight at Omalos where there is a hotel or rooms. Both of these walks you have to retrace your steps but there are some circular walks in the book.  Can also recommend the Lance Chilton books for walks around Plakias (already mentioned on this website i think)  A good walk is from Sellia to Finikas Monastery and down to Souda Bay.  We started the walk in the morning, arriving at Souda Bay in time for lunch and a relaxing afternoon on the beach
