Great Hikes and Cuisine of Crete

Island Trails and Culinary Traditions

May 1-11, 2023, October 7-17, 2023

The rugged island of Crete, renowned for its wild mountain trails and traditional culture, is also celebrated for its cuisine. We get an insider’s perspective with Trip Leader Kostas Vasileiou, an accomplished cook and winemaker himself. Daily hikes bring us above the gleaming blue sea on and into the soaring peaks of the interior. Between hikes, we’ll enjoy cooking lessons and wine tasting as Kostas introduces us to friends all along the way—shepherds, farmers, taverna owners, and people who create the island’s signature dishes. This is the perfect adventure for hikers, foodies, and anyone who is intrigued by this proud culture on the southern edge of the Aegean.
