    Tour Description

    Our Crete via-ferrata experience is a delight for rock climbers! Enjoy amazing views to the Lybean sea, right from the heart of Asterousia mountains; a range in southern Crete separating the Messara valley from the Libyan Sea. We will start climbing very close from Kapetaniana village at an altitude of 800 meters.
    A must trip if you want to explore the real face of Crete!

    This via-ferrata activity is suitable for all people, easy in terms of climbing as there is a wire and steps on most parts. Some parts are however exposed, therefore it is recommended to have some previous climbing experience, but not required.

    Level of difficulty / Characteristics

    Easy, suitable for climbers of all levels.

    Entry requirements

    • Basic physical condition
    • Climbers of all levels, as long as you are not overweight, you are in good fit and don't fear the heights.

    Meeting point and time

    We start around 10 am from Heraklion city or earlier during the summer months to avoid the strong mid day sun. The via ferrata itself takes around 1.5 hour for experienced climbers or between 2-3 hours for non experienced. We also need roughly an hour and 15 minutes driving to get there. The starting location is Kapetiana village.
