Hiking and nature in Eastern Crete

Route 10 :  Pefki (Makrigialos) - Dafni

Total length of run : 7 kms (Pefki - Vreiko Cave - Dafni : 2,5 hours





We go onto the narrow asphalted way from Pefki village, which leads to Vreiko cave. We park the car where the asphalted road stops and we go on the distinctive path. In 10 min. walking we arrive at the known cave Vreiko. We can visit the cave.

The Gorge, close to Vreiko Cave
After the gorge..
Its entrance is very impressive where you can find a big fig tree. More for Vreiko Cave here.
From that point we climb the path which comes over the gorge, which is in front of us. For half an hour we go on the rocky bank watching the cedar trees bobbing up in the gorge.

View to north
A little bit later when you come out of the gorge as you go on walking to the north direction the ground becomes flat with no many rocks. But we have to be careful not to lose our way, because it is not so distinctive now.

From Vreiko cave there are blue signs upon rocks at intervals. Going out of the gorge, there are no more blue signs.

On the way to Dafni village
The hidden Dafni Valley
We walk across that flat ground for 10 minutes and then a dirt road is seen from afar. This is the road leading to Dafni village, after one hour walking. After 15 min. walking on the dirt road, it turns to the west, where is located Dafni village.
This route is easy to walk with a very nice view to the mountainous area of Handras.
