An easy beach stroll, with opportunities for a swim or a drink on the beach. This is in the area of the National Marine Park of Zakynthos and the main hatching area for the Caretta Caretta sea turtle. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

Its a good hearty hike up this mountain with a loose rock and stoney path. It is straight up and straight back down so do not expect any flat sections. However you are payed for your efforts with beautiful panoramic views overlooking the whole island. At the top you can visit the old monastery Panagia Skopiostissa. May sure you take plenty of water and some snacks as the canteen at the top may be closed so you will not be able to stock up on the way.

Very nice trail, a variety of scenery and when we walked it still had quite a lot of snow which made the views even better. Keep your eyes open towards the top (in the rocky section of the trail) cause the signs and markings are quite hard to spot. Highly recommended hike!

Possibly one of my favorite day hikes ever. Start early in the morning and you’ll make it back down just in time for a afternoon beer at Dias in Mikro Papigko. It’s chilly up top!

Really fun trail, some sections extremely eroded and some minor scrambling necessary. The last part of the descent into Agia Roumeli was a little challenging, very crumbly and hard to find the path- but it was after sundown so it may have been well marked.

From the Turkish ruins on Cape Tripiti, all downhill, some sections very eroded or washed out. Domata is lovely. We swam at the far east end.

Ignore the GPS on mine for this, I don't know what it was doing. We couldn't quite make it to Skala or Mytikas as when we were about 400m from Skala, we were in the clouds, were getting wet and it was very windy so decided it was too dangerous to continue. This was in November so wouldn't recommend it this time or year if you want to be guaranteed to make it to the summit. The refuge is closed this time of year, however we met people who were camping in tents in the refuge area. There was no water there, but there is water in the car park and one spring water fountain after that. We set off at 6:30 and got back to the car park at 16:10, so this is possible to do in one day if you set off early enough and have enough daylight. Me and my partner aren't experienced hikers but we still managed it, however it was challenging. Beautiful views all the way up and would definitely recommend this route.

Beautiful trail, not too busy on October 22nd. Would rate as moderate as the trail itself is very easy, just long.

Wonderful hike- absolutely gorgeous. Starting early is key, avoids the mad rush of people and there’s more shade in the canyon than if you went through it mid day. Very rocky and the first kilometer or so is fairly steep so it’s hard on your knees. If you head out of the state park and walk (or catch a van ride down) 3km to the port, there is the most gorgeous water I’ve ever seen. The beach is free and renting a chair is 7 euro. Make sure to pack your bathing suit and take a dip on the Mediterranean Sea! We took a bus to the top and caught a ferry and bus to get back to Chania. (I think the company was called Elafannosis) Zero problem with the company but take drammamine for the bus rides. Those mountain roads are killer!

very beautiful trail perfect with children, easy walking, perfect spots on the river

Great hike! I found the best views would be if you keep the river on your left to start!

Good route to do with kids. Lots of flours and nice views

Hiked up to the plateau from Gortsia and stayed at “refuge B” aka Apostolidis. The views and landscape are stunning. We went in early October, and the weather was perfect. Hot at the bottom, but probably around 40F and windy at the plateau. Dress in layers. The hike itself was difficult but doable for anyone in decent physical shape. We went rather slow and took several breaks, including a coffee break at the first refuge, which is a great rest stop about halfway up. We didn’t go for Mytikas because my wife and I were with my sister who is a less experienced climber and didn’t feel comfortable taking her up, but I will be back for that and the other peaks nearby. Highly recommend.

I recommend this trail for moderately experienced hikers. Wear HIKERS! It is so rocky. I did it in running shoes and I'm sure the feet are bruised. Dont rush this hike. Stop, look around at this most amazing and breath taking planet! The views are breath taking. It will make your heart sing!
