A Unique Ski Touring Trip at The Very South End of Europe! Crete is a majestic island and full of diversities and well known from mythology as the birth land of Zeus. Nowadays Zeus welcomes the ski tourers, as Crete is the ideal destination for a true ski touring adventure on high altitude mountains, so close to the Mediterranean Sea. Under my guidance, you will experience a unique ski touring course on isolated and unspoiled mountains, you will taste local food, and you will smell the fresh sea-salty breeze, on the Very Top of Crete.

This ski trip runs the two highest mountains of the island, Mount Ida - Psiloritis and The White Mountains, true jewels and highly appreciated for the big quantities of snow and the endless ski terrain. Mediterranean homemade food, fish, and exceptional wine, Greek hospitality and traditional Cretan dances will all be part of this adventure, every afternoon before the sun goes down.

Backpack 30-35 l volume, ski touring equipment, winter mountaineering clothing, avalanche beacon, shovel, probe.
