While the coastline is more cosmopolitan, the outback area is traditional and unspoiled. The mountain area presents traditional villages, you will find diversified landscapes and huge mountain ranges the “Lefka Ori” ( White Mountains), which are snow- capped till the beginning of June even the thermometer shows more than 30 degree..  Countless Orage and Olive – trees capped the mountain area. The oldest olive tree is in the Mountain Village “Vouves in western Crete. With good luck you´ll find the “Kri-Kri” the indigenous goat it the  Agia Irini or Samaria – Canyon.  The Rodhopou-Peninsula ( behind Kolimbari Village) is a nature reserve for the bone vulture ( Or Bearded Vulture).
