Psiloritis

An ascent on the highest peak of Crete, Timios Stavros, at 2,456m a.s.l. on Mt Psiloritis.
During the summer the temperature is always at least 10oC lower than sea level and is not uncommon to nead a jacket even in July, August when everyone is laying on a beach!
The route starts north of Livadia village, free pick up from Heraklion city and near by.
For groups of 4 or more, transfer is included for free from most parts of Crete, please contact us to verify this.

We start our hike from a place called Lakkos Mygerou, at 1700m, on the northern side of Mt Psiloritis (or Mt Ida). We follow an up going, stone-built, well-marked trail that in two hours meets the E4 European trail. Following it we reach the highest peak, Timios Stavros, which offers a panoramic view all over the island.

We return following the same route.
