As I was watching Crete and Chania yesterday evening. Possibly an Easter break in Chania with no mountains, just relax, but I couldn't help myself having a look on the SP pages of the area ! 2400m, I never expected this. Looks like a fantastic place to hike and your page perfectly reflects this !

Yes, Eric, it's a wonderful place to hike - not too difficult but rather demanding because of distances and elevation gains. But don't get mixed up with German tourists and their guide ...

Interesting trip report, I need to read it more accurately later.
How many French guides did you encounter there ? :)
One question, did you land in Chania or Iraklios ? If in Chania how is the airport like ? How easy can someone make its way without Greek knowledge ?

We landed in Chania but I don't have many recollections about the airport. I think it was the first island airport we were in, in which they actually took our luggage hours before the flight. But apart from that it was like any other airport.

I don't remember any French guides but I remember meeting French hikers during the episode of the trip report. Hoever, the island seems to be in the hands of the Germans, Dutch and British.

Greek knowledge? We have none. You can get along in English pretty well. All traffic signs are in Greek but always with a latin transcription. Supermarkets are no problem though we found it hard to find a good one where we stayed. Restaurants also rarely are a problem though I can't say this out of own experience. We always cooked ourselves.

Hiking maps were a problem. We only got ourselves a road map and used the little maps that come with the tours in our guidebook.

We always planned to return to the eastern part of Crete to have a look at the Dikti Range, which is much harder to climb but we never managed to find accommodation which was up to our taste (apartments / holiday homes). Somehow you only find big hotels or the areas are too rural for tourist accommodation.

Correction: we met French people on Psiloritis as I found out when I re-read this TR ;-)
