This relaxed short walk is a perfect introduction into the pleasures on foot that Crete can offer. A short transfer brings you to the start of the walk close to the tiny hamlet of Vasilaki.

From here an old mule track brings you to the antennas on top of the mountain Kerea (365 m.) with stunning views over Paleochora and the south coast as far as the White Mountains above the Samaria Gorge. An easy descent takes you back into Paleochora.
