21 Apr 2019

One-day hiking activity in the prefecture of Rethymno. The starting point of the route will be the Gious Kampos plateau of Mount Kedros, where we admire the endemic red tulips growing in the region and protected by presidential decree from 1981.

Route: The starting point of the route will be from an altitude of 750 meters and the plateaus of Júnos kambos, where we will admire the unique in the world doerfleri tulips. After 15 minutes of walking on a rural road, we will start climbing about 30 minutes (without a trail) at the top of Koupos, where we will be the point of rest, but also admire the wonderful view of the surrounding area. Then we descend from the mountain and after walking about half an hour we enter the gorge of Agia Fotia. At some point, there is a wonderful waterfall that we may be able to approach.
