Kandanos - Temenia - Prodromi - Paleochora   Grade: ***   Total Distance 31.3 km.

Start in the attractive village of Kandanos. In the fertile valley around the village are dozens of small medieval chapels with centuries old frescos. Visit a few of them before you start the climb to Temenia through the last remnants of the mountain forests with large oak, plane and chestnut trees. Temenia is regionally known as a healthy spa and producer of the widely known Temenia-Lemonades. From Temenia the route goes through the meadows higher up the mountain slopes and you will be fascinated by the spectacular panoramas towards the White Mountains. A long formidable descent brings you down to the villages of Prodromi and Anidri before ending up at Paleochora’s boulevard.
 

Price: € 18.00, which includes a map, route description and GPS track, and the transfer per minibus for you and your bike to the start of the tour. You can also book and pay in our office at the Kontekaki Street (next to the Chania Bank) in Paleochora.
