Walking holiday in October in Greece

Walking holiday in October in Greece: Walking in Greece is the best way to get to know the country, the nature and the people. There are many different options for a hiking trip in Greece. This beautiful country has countless places that we can suggest for amazing hikes in nature. But for a walking holiday in Greece, we recommend going to the southern island of Crete. The temperature on Crete in October is comparable to a pleasant summer in Northern Europe and is therefore perfect for the most special hikes. On Crete you can walk along ancient footpaths along beautiful bays and authentic villages, but also through gorges or over mountain paths. Between the olive trees you walk to the next beautiful spot where time has had no influence. 

Information on hiking and walking

Walking and hiking in October on Crete: People often think that Crete is a crowded and touristy island. This only applies to very small parts of the island. The largest part is a relatively quiet island where the Greeks are just their typical selves and busy tourism is far away. Crete is a true paradise for nature lovers and active people. Mountains, forests, olive groves and grape fields alternate in the landscape. Nature offers an abundance of trees, plants, flowers and herbs. And in addition to all of that, history is visibly present in the many excavations, old churches and monasteries. Thanks to the pleasant weather in October on Crete, it is one of the best months in the year to discover Crete on foot.

Hiking in October on Crete: Walking on Crete is more than following a footpath. Over the years we have mapped out many different hikes for our guests. We walked every metre many times, so we know where we can go with our guests. For hikers of every level we have many different nice walks. We often choose the places that are not described in the walking books of Crete and provide a personal approach.
