Crete tourist guide

The best Polish website dedicated to the Greek island Crete and to a small extent of continental Greece. You will find useful information related to visiting Crete that goes beyond the offer of optional tours. On the website you will also find descriptions of the most interesting places that we visited by visiting this largest Greek island. The content complements the current news, photographs and recipes of Greek cuisine.

Wild Gorge Ha

Most people crossing the route between Agios Nikolaos and Ierapetra will definitely notice the large crack which is marked by the mountain located east of this road. This majestic geological creation called Ha was probably created as a result of an earthquake. The total length of the ravine is just over 1.5 km. Despite the fact that it is so perfectly visible, it still remains one of the wildest nooks in Crete. A few-meter rocky steep that forms the mouth of this gorge, effectively deters most visitors. Only people who have knowledge about climbing and having the necessary climbing equipment will be able to fully enjoy the beauty of this place.

If you are just ordinary tourists, you should not, after all, cross the Ha gorge from your holiday plans. It is worth taking a few kilometers off the main road to pass the village of Monastiraki, to be at the foot of steep rock walls, which rise several hundred meters up. The amazing calm prevailing in this place is drowned only by sheep and goats, which keep their bells still attached to the neck to know about their presence. Especially interesting may be the observation of these last animals, because they have the gift to appear on the least expected rock shelves, which seem to be available only to experienced climbers.

How to get

Regardless of where you are, access to the Ha gorge requires going to Agios Nikolaos. After turning into the road leading to the city of Ierapetra, you have to drive a few kilometers to turn east at Vasiliki. Using the few signposts you can reach the end of the asphalt road and then, walking along a gravel road, you can go to the mouth of the ravine.

Recipes for self-organization of trips to the Samaria Gorge

Samaria is one of the places we often devote a place to on our site. This gorge is not without exaggeration is considered one of the biggest attractions of the western part of Crete. Every year in high season it is visited by even over a thousand people a day. Its popularity was influenced not only by the natural beauty of this place, but also by the name of the longest gorge in Europe. Although there is already a guide on our site, in which we described in detail the trip from Paleochora to the Samaria Gorge, we decided to supplement it with an additional article. Below you will find detailed information on how to organize this trip yourself from some of the more important towns of central and western Crete.

Imbros

Imbros

The total length of the trail leading through this place is about 8 kilometers, during which the difference in altitude is about 600 m. Organizing a trip to the ravine is not too difficult or requires too complicated planning. If you have a rental car, you can definitely opt out of buying a trip sold by local travel agencies.

Adam Wyspiański : Prosze o wyjaśnienie, kiedy dokładnie trzeba wypełnić formularz lokalizacyjny. Obecnie należy go przesłać co najmniej 24h przed wjazdem. Czy mogę go wypełnić i przesłać tydzień przed wjazdem? Z jakim wyprzedzeniem wypełnialiście i czy kod QR przychodzi na czas?? Pozdrawiam Wszystkich miłośników Krety, Tych, którzy są obecnie na Krecie i Tych, którzy niedługo będą...
Jacek Krzepkowski: A jak wygląda sprawa podania adresu hotelu jeśli w dniu przylotu wchodzę na czarterowany jacht
Blanka Jankowiak: W jaki sposób turysta dowiaduje się ze test jest ujemny lub dodatni ?
Małgorzata Jankowska: Ja miałam wykonany test na lotnisku. Pomoc osoby z kodem zaczynającym się od cyfry 1 mają testy. Ja taki miałam. Nie jest to jednak potwierdzona informacja.
Rafal Karpus: My przylecielismy na Krete 1 lipca co 3 osoba do testu
Mikołaj Kiełpikowski: Jeszcze trochę i każdy turysta przylatujący do Grecji będzie musiał okazać się ujemnym testem na obecność koronawirusa
gość Kostas Chania: 4 lipca leciałem pierwszym lotem z Chanii do Krakowa. Na lotnisku w Chanii pusto, maski nosi obsługa lotniska, Policja itd. Pasażerowie tylko Ci którzy chcą. Nikt tego nie sprawdza, nikt nie chodzi i nie kontroluje. Luz, spokój, cisza. W samolocie około 10 pasażerów. Cała podróż w pasach. Kto chce skorzystać z toalety musi najpierw wezwać stewardessę, która poprowadzi taką osobę do toalety. Serwis funkcjonował normalnie. (...)
Agnieszka Jankowska: A jest gdzieś informacja ile testów robi się w Grecji dziennie?
Sławomir Zbrowski: Dzień dobry, Czy ktoś może podać oficjalne źródło informacji na temat kwarantanny dla sąsiadów pasażera samolotu z pozytywnym wynikiem testu?
gość Magda: Bilety na 26.07 mam od stycznia. Cały czas chciałam jechać . Ale ta akcja testowa mnie odstrasza. Rezygnujemy. Jadę na urlop, aby odpocząć. Jak sobie wyobrażę problemy przy dodatnim wyniku testu, to odechciewa mi się ryzykować . Bardzo mi żal.
Jarek Koziolek: Polecam stronę KEEP TALKING GREECE
Aska Mazur: Super
Marzena Zalinska: Ach ta Kreta kochana! Pozdrów Kretę ode mnie i tatku. Mam nadzieję że nie odwołają lotu.
Kama Pawlicka: Ja myślę o Grecji od 31 lipca. Ale się waham.
Karolina Krawczyńska: Jaka jest obecnie sytuacja na Krecie - czy istnieje obowiązek noszenia maseczek/ trzeba wykonać przed przyjazdem/po przyjeździe test czy tylko wypełnić formularz?
Artur Gulak: A jak Grecy podchodzą do lotów z lotniska w Katowicach? Dalej obowiązkowa kwarantanna ? Ktoś coś wie?
Jarek Koziolek: Polecam stronę keepttalkinggreece.com
Agnieszka Langner: Mój kolejny cel
Monika Zofia Koprowska-Ludwig: My jesteśmy w tej chwili w Ajos Nicolaos. Jest cudownie! Wszędzie pusto, ludzie przesympatyczni. W samolocie leciało 40 osób:) miałam 1 więc byłam przygotowana na test. No i jak przewidywałam jestem zdrowa i całe miasto dla nas:) ceny bardzo atrakcyjne, pogoda wyśmienita. Nigdy już tak nie będzie jak teraz:)
Brygida Radkowska: Tęsknię
Anna Zabłocka: My rozwazalismy lot na Krete, tydzien urlopu. Zniechecila nas opcja losowej lapanki na test covid po przylocie. Nie chcielismy sie mimo wszystko tym stresowac. I dlatego jestesmy w Hiszpanii. Ale Krete kocham i jestem z nia calym swoim sercem
Bohdan Anetta Dorsz: Wszystko się zgadza smutno wszędzie
Monika Maja Mandrak-Górz: My jesteśmy teraz na Rodos. Bardzo mało turystów, dużo zamkniętych knajpek, sklepów. Napewno bardzo trudny czas dla Greków. Lecieliśmy Lotem z Warszawy, na pokładzie było może ok 40 osób.
gość dodekanezowiec: A co, Giannoulis się nie otworzył jeszcze? No właśnie, 200 pokoi, co będzie jak 1 osoba w hotelu zachoruje? Tez może zmieniac na małe hotele... Ale w małych nic dla dzieci nie ma. 
gość dodekanezowiec: - patrzysz tylko na TUI i grubo przesadzasz. Itaka daje wybór ceny z dnia rezerwacji ale ja TUI zazdroszczę zostawienia samolotów z lotnisk lokalnych czy zaliczki 5%. A ze lipiec droższy od maja to zawsze tak było. A parę lastów na krzyz teraz już sie kończy Wszedzie dobrze gdzie nas nie ma :)
