Description

We will enter the PSILORITIS NATIONAL PARK, which is at the same time
also a UNESCO CLOBAL GEOPARK, and will ascend through a unique scenery
which was formed millions of years ago when the tectonic plate of Africa
started pushing itself under the European plate and this forced the
southern edge of the European continent out of the sea. Gradually the
flora will become more scarce on our drive to the REFUGE ‘LAKKOS TOY
MYGEROY’ at 1600 meters. We follow the Strata of Psiloritis which
hundreds of people will follow during a special event at the end of
August every year. The first part will feature a rather steep climb but
the morning freshness, regular breaks and, if needed, slow pace will
make everyone feel comfortable. After about two hours we will join the
path coming from the NIDA PLATEAU and we will be just underneath the
AGATHIAS PEAK, with 2424 meters the third highest summit on Crete. From
here we take turn to the right and start an easy walk of one more hour
to reach the top of PSILORITIS, the HIGHEST POINT OF CRETE (2456
meters), also called TIMIOS STAVROS. From here we will enjoy a splendid
view over all mountain ranges, the AEGEAN SEA and on clear days even
SANTORINI on the north side and the LIBYAN SEA ans GAVDOS ISLAND on the
south side. After our picnic at the chapel on the top we will return to
our starting point and drive back to the hotels. This trip takes you
back to your accomodation quite early so have time to relax after and
enjoy this great experience in your minds and hearts.
