Snow in Crete: Many newspapers wrote about it: snow in Crete and the Greek islands! Some newspapers wrote that the Cretan population have never seen snow before, but that is not true. Every year, there is snow in the higher Cretan mountains. Now, it also snowed in the lower regions in Crete. Parts of Crete and the Greek islands have now snow up to 100-150 meters above sea level. This is unique, this only happens about every 10 years. Even the beaches had a thin layer of snow!

How long does the snow last in Crete? In the lower situated regions of Crete, the snow will already start to melt from today. The highest Cretan mountains up to 2.456 metres will have snow until the summer months. It is always nice to see from the beach that there is still snow up in the higher mountains. Last year, the snow on the Psiloritis mountain had disappeared by the end of May. This year the snow will probably remain on the Psiloritis mountain for a month or longer.

Snow walking in Crete: It is very beautiful to hikethrough the snow in the Cretan mountains. The olive groves are full of snow.

Next spring in Crete, Greece: The snow also has a positive influence on the Cretan nature. The nature in Crete will remain green until June with lots of beautiful flowers and plants!

Last winter in Crete: Last year, the weather was the opposite from what is it is now; there was only snow on the 3 highest mountaintops of Crete. It is very different now.
