This is our best selling kayak day trip! It takes place in one of the most protected areas in Crete, very close to the famous Samaria gorge. Previous experience is not required. The starting point (Ilingas beach) is about an hour driving from the town of Chania and is suitable for those staying in west Crete and or near Rethymno town. Many sea caves, high cliffs and impressive beaches not accessible by road included! Many times we are also able to see the amazing griffon vultures as there are plenty in the area.
This is our best selling kayak expedition and there are several reasons for this but the major one is the outstanding landscape. A big part of the route is protected from the strong north winds by the massive of White mountains (48 summits above 2000 meters!) with plenty of remote beaches and of course sunshine!
The via ferrata trip is suitable for all people with some experience in rock climbing. It is very easy in terms of climbing as there is a wire and steps on most parts.
It is however exposed on some parts thus is recommended to have previous climbing experience but not required. The via ferrata is location in the south of Heraklion region so those traveling from Chania region or eastern Crete need to aware about the driving distance (1.5-2 hours).
It is an amazing place to be, the view to the sea and nearby mountains is outstanding. Not to be missed!
