The Entire World is a Family

Our hiking in the white mountains of Crete trip starts in Chania, probably the most charming Cretan city. From there we will head toward the White Mountains (Lefka Ori). They take their name after the shining bleached limestone cliffs and the rich snow cover during the winter. For a whole week, we will hike on a network of ancient paths and shepherd trails. We will follow the stunning southern coastline, climb to imposing summits, and enter into the depths of some of the most beautiful gorges of the island, including the most famous of all – the legendary Gorge of Samaria. On a hot summer day, heading downhill toward the entrance of a Cretan gorge is an ideal hike. We will hike under shade, protected from the summer sun, looking forward to a refreshing swim at the end as a reward. Highlights: - Wander around the historical city of Chania, one of the longest continuously inhabited city sites in the world - Walk through Samaria, Europe's longest gorge and Crete's 'must-do' experience - Climb Mt. Gigilos the legendary peak overlooking Samaria with its 2080m high summit - Enjoy awe-inspiring views of the dramatic, rocky seascape while breathing in the fresh, salty air of remote and unspoiled beaches Price includes: All accommodations as listed (or similar) based on double occupancy All transportation during the trip Entrance fees at the Gorges of Agia Irini and Samaria Services of a leader/guide throughout the tour A bottle of water per day Hotel taxes and service charges Transport and handling of one reasonably sized suitcase and one carry-on per person Included meals: Day 1: Dinner / Day 2-7: Breakfast /Lunch / Dinner / Day 8: Breakfast Not included: Domestic and/or international air fare Medical expenses, travel, or emergency evacuation insurance Gratuities for leader/guide or driver Alcoholic beverages and meals other than those outlined in the itinerary Transfer to and from the airport/port Other items of a personal nature.
