Mountain peaks above 2000 meters - Beaches and Gorges throughout
Filled with contrasts and surprises in each bend in the road as you travel through it. It can be hot, mild or tropical as it straddles two climatic zones (but the climate is primarily Mediterranean). The atmosphere can be humid, depending on the proximity to the sea, while winter is fairly mild. Snowfall is common in the mountains between November and April, and snow capped mountains can be seen until the end of May. Rugged wild regions, especially in the South. For example, at the ancient settlement of Kato Zakros as you climb the Dead Man’s Gorge, you may hear the echoes of those who have passed on.
