More and more people choose for an individual walking holiday instead of an organized walking holiday in a group. The big advantage of a self guided walking tour is that you keep your own pace;
you can stop whenever you feel like and you are more free in your choice where to go walking. On our region, Apokoronas, there are many possibilities to go walking on your own with the help of a walking guidebook and/or map or by booking an individual walking holiday at one of the many travel companies.
When you book an individual walking holiday, most organizations will arrange almost everything for you. You walk with the help of walk descriptions that are given to you by the travel company. Travel, accommodation and luggage transfer are included. The most popular self guided walking holidays take place in the South-West of Crete, along the south-coast and the White Mountains. Other popular areas are in the Rethymno area or at the west-coast (near Kastelli) and eastern Crete. Travel Companies that also organize individual walking holidays are summarized on this website.
There are enough possibilities for those who like to walk with the help of a walking guide book and/or maps. On this website you find a summary of available Walking guidebooks and Maps that are available for Crete.
