From Chania to Agia Irini Gorge and Omalos plateau
Wake up and get ready to enter the White Mountains through the narrow gorge of Agia Irini. The gorge is part of the habitat of the Cretan wild goat and the vegetation is extremely rich and consists of plane, pine and cypress trees, and many different herbs. Our hike ends close to Omalos plateau, at an altitude of more than 1000m. From there, we will have a short transfer to our hotel where you can enjoy the evening breeze listening to the jingling of the occasional goat’s bell.
