#14068 South Western Walking Trail

Posted by REFLEX on 09 May 2008 - 09:50 AM in Explore Crete

Booking a head might be difficult because we wouldn't know the exact date we will be there, we might be a day or two a head of time.. or behind. I wonder what else we can do?


As far as heights/vertigo.... we are fine with that I am sure. We can acquire fresh water a long the way from these villages? 4-5 days is fine as that leaves us just over another week to go to Sifnos and possibly Santorini.

The walk is very important to me, I think it will be a great way to experience greece....... and especially crete ofcourse.


The booking with the villages/towns would be difficult as I have said, since we don't know the exact date we will be there, we might be a day early or late.

In the part of Canada we are from if you are out in a trail in the middle of nowhere you got a few large concerns.... haha!

Wow, thanks a lot for that information. I'm going to write some of that down and make sure we are fully prepared. 4 Days sounds about right to take it all in and enjoy the scenery. I simply cannot wait, we leave for Spain in a week and arrive in Crete a few weeks later.

Are there any concerns of animals or anything else other than heat and fresh water?



#14060 South Western Walking Trail

Cool! thats a short ferry ride! From one little town to the other.


But it is recommended that we skip that rough part of the trip right?


And does anyone know how long it would take to navigate the trip I have outlined, including the ferry trip? 3 days or so perhaps? any over night stops that are NOT in towns? is the trail marked or is it easy to get lost..?

Lots of questions I know. B)

So would it be best to perhaps to hire a boat for that portion of the trip?

I'm going to read through that link you provided, thank you, do you know how long it would take (assuming we used a boat for the Agia Roumeli to Souya section) to complete the journey?

The information I have here says that its best to land in Hania, then get to Souda and then across to Hora Sfakion where this trail starts:

Hora Sfakion, Loutro, Agia Roumeli, Sougia, Paleohora, Elafonisi.


They said that its advised to take a boat from Agia roumeli to Sougia instead of walking because its pretty high up and a bit dangerous and it takes about 12 hours because you need to go so slow. So this is the route......

Also once in Elafonisi can we take a boat or bus back to Hania?


I'm leaving in 10 days for Europe and will be in Crete around the middle of June..... I'd love to know more about this trail if possible. My girlfriend and I would love to walk this.
