This non-commercial web page is not destined for those who like to spend their leisure time on Crete Island laying on beaches or drinking in pubs, bars, and discos but for those who like to do some physical activities in the countryside. More such possibilities, Levka Ori (White Mountains), a mountain area in the western half of Crete, can provide. These mountains are taking a considerable part of this half of the island. I’m fascinated with them despite the fact these mountains are not too large, too high, too wild, not with very steep nor with very rocky terrains for “rope-climbing” (although even such could be found there!!)..... Because I didn't find any compact details concerning hiking throughout these mountains several years ago, I mean, details concerning trails disposal, marking of routes, proper maps etc., I decided to create my own webpages (with my hiking experience and with links on other suitable websites) to help another interested persons who would like to explore this part of the island, to enjoy staying and hiking there both in the mountains, and on the informal, uncrowded “camping-sites” of southern shore under their southern flanks. Of course, how the time has been running, the number of proper information has risen and recently everybody can find so many details requested how many is necessary. However, if this my own website is helpful just for one person, I’ll be delighted. For communication, for chatting, for asking answers, please, use my contact email address (see in the menu folder "Contact me").

More details concerning Crete you can get also on


Everybody who would like to discuss this subject (I mean, Levka Ori) is welcomed.

On this website, also some general information about history, geology and geography, about weather and some “miscellanies” (concerning sleeping in the mountains, water supplies and next) can be found. And there are, of course, also descriptions of all my “big” tracks (lasted for several days, with spending at least 2 nights sleeping somewhere in mountains but usually more) here. These descriptions are accompanied by, I think, a quite rich photo gallery.

One more note: There are also GPS tracks disposal, either in a shape od several-days-track, but later I have started doing records of single days because this style gives more possibilities how to arrange (an) own track(s). However, these records are ony in Czech version available, so for those who would like to download some of them it is recommended to click on the Czech flag (up-left), find the folder "GPS" and even though all the text is in Czech, I thing, to orientate oneself is rather easy, there are in red (for more-days-tracks) descriptions of all places across which that certain track runs, or - for single-day-record - also these are highlighted and their names clearly point to two (start/finish) places.
