Walk an ancient path

Some friends who are passionate about the countryside of East Crete have joined me to create a website called Exploring East Crete. Whereas I’m a keen walker others specialise in the flora and fauna so we bring different views and appreciation of the area. The website is under (slow) production and it will continue to grow based on our experiences over the next few years. However, there is already some content, so  Click Here to see it and perhaps follow us to see how it develops.

Across East Crete are many old cobbled tracks known as kalderimi. Used since antiquity to connect villages and pasture areas, they were used primarily to drive sheep and goats from place to place and for traders with pack animals. These days they make great walking trails, although sometimes routes disappear under concrete or tarmac.
