Three mountain ranges dominate the island: Lefká Óri (2,453 m) or White Mountains to the west, Mount Psiloritis (2,456 m) or Mount Ida in the center (the highest point of the island) and Mount Dikti (2,148 m) to the east.
To the west of the island are gorges. The calcareous massifs are karstified and shelter cavities remarkable in their dimensions.
Snow covers the tops in winter months , making hundreds of rivers in spring towards Aegean and Libyan sea.At very short distance from main cities, you are inside deep gorges, walking on shepherds traces, visiting caves, appreciating incredible views of low lands.
Meet local people in remote villages and feel their hospitality.
